Medical News Today: What is the outlook for chronic lymphocytic leukemia?
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow. Although doctors can very rarely cure CLL, survival rates for this cancer are typically good. A person ’s life expectancy for CLL depends on how far the cancer has progressed and when they receive treatment. Learn more here. (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

Efficient control of leukaemia with treatment by dual immune-checkpoint blockade
(Luxembourg Institute of Health) Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is a haematological malignancy. When infiltrating tissues, CLL cells come in contact with healthy cells, including immune cells. Researchers from the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) succeeded in characterising in depth the composition of immune cells and circulating cytokines of the CLL microenvironment in mouse models using mass cytometry. Based on this knowledge, they propose an immunotherapeutic strategy with two immune checkpoint inhibitors that efficiently blocks disease development in preclinical tests.

The study, which will be published Jan. 4 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, reveals that ibrutinib has a diminished capacity to delocalize and kill tumor cells expressing an adhesive protein called CD49d, but combining ibrutinib treatment with drugs that block CD49d activation could prevent the tumor cells from sheltering in lymphoid organs.
