    I have been accepted into a Stage I clinical trial at Penn in Philadelphia to start on Wed. I will be the 2nd person to receive it. I am hopeful, but a little apprehensive. Hoping this might be the medication that can control my CLL since all the others that I have received have not been successful.

      Hoping this will be THE ONE. May I ask how long ago you were diagnosed? I was diagnosed in May 2015 and so far need no treatment. Sending good thoughts your way.

      I was diagnosed in 1997 at the age of 38 & stage 0. I am now 57 & stage IV. I was treated previously with FCR in 2007 & Obinutuzumab in 2015. The FCR worked wonders, but the Obinutuzumab did not have the desired effect. So, now I am seeing one of the top specialists in the country & starting this new med.

      Thank you. I was diagnosed at 69, and am now 70. I really do hope that this new team and meds will work well for you. I see that you went the first 10 years without treatment. That is certainly what I am hoping for- at least. I will be sending good thoughts your way.
