Prof Barbara Eichhorst- Center for Integrated Oncology, Cologne, Germany

Prof Eichhorst talks to ecancertv at SIOG 2015 about new challenges in treatment of elderly chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) patients. 

Combinations of chemotherapy and antibodies are becoming standard in younger and/or physically fit patients.

Concomitant diseases and physically fitness are playing a major role for the selection of treatment for elderly patients.

So far, there is no ideal tool to measure the comborbidity burden, but a geriatric assessment before treatment initiation is strongly recommended.
