Treatment of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

The treatment options for chronic lymphocytic leukemia are:

  • Chemotherapy- Chemotherapy drugs are given either in the form of tablets or injected into the veins or the muscles. The common chemotherapy drugs for chronic lymphocytic leukemia are purine analogs, alkylating agents, corticosteroids, doxorubicin, methotrexate, oxaliplatin and others. 
  • Monoclonal Antibodies- Monoclonal antibodies can be defined as man-made immune system proteins or antibodies that attach to the proteins on the surface of the leukemia cells and assist the immune system to react and kill the leukemia cells.
  • Targeted Therapy- In targeted therapy, such drugs are provided to the patients that identify and kill only the leukemia cells while not affecting the other healthy ones.
  • Stem Cell Transplant- High dose of chemotherapy is often followed by stem cell transplants. The stem cells are either obtained from blood, bone marrow or from umbilical cord blood. There are two types of stem cell transplant: allogenic (from a donor) and autologous (from the patient himself). In case of chronic lymphocytic leukemia, allogenic stem cell transplant is mostly performed since there is always a risk of acquiring leukemic cells during the harvest.
  • Leukapheresis- In this procedure the blood of the patient is made to pass through a special machine that gets rid of white blood cells and leukemic cells. By the end of the procedure the blood is returned to the patient’s body with only red blood cells and plasma. It helps to cut down the leukemia cells faster.
