Consensus guidelines for T-PLL published

Although T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia had already been recognized being distinct from CLL in 1976, until today it has been managed according to criteria for CLL as described by the international workshop on CLL (IWCLL). The T-PLL International Study group (TPLL-ISG) has now set up a first consensus paper defining guidelines for the diagnosis, treatment and response evaluation of T-PLL. These guidelines will provide a basis for clinical decision making and will help to compare results from clinical trials in T-PLL.

ERANET-PLL approved

The project, “ERANET-PLL – Implementation of (epi)genetic and metabolic networks in the targeting of T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia“, was granted funding within the European ERA-net TRANSCAN 2 initiative (Horizon 2020).

The project is a cooperation of five European research groups from Austria, France and Germany, coordinated by Dr. Marco Herling (University Hospital of Cologne). It focuses on the development of new tools to predict individual in vitro drug sensitivities and synergies in the rare entity of T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia and implementation of these into the clinics.

Overall, the project is funded with 1.5 million euros.
