A study looking at the genetics of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
This study tried to find out more about the genes that might cause chronic lymphocytic leukaemia.
More about this trial
In this study the researchers looked at the family history and genes of a large number of people with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and compared them with people who do not have CLL.
The aim of this study was to identify genes that might increase the risk of CLL.
Summary of results
- 3,100 people who had CLL
- 7,667 who didn’t have CLL
- 1,958 people who had CLL
- 5,530 people who didn’t have CLL
- how this might be able to suggest new ways to prevent and treat CLL
- the importance of the 5 SNPs that might be involved in CLL cell death
