abstract

  • This large experience confirms the excellent response rates and remission duration of CdA in patients with HCL. Nevertheless, the response rates in this setting, which approximates general clinical practice, were lower than in other series. In general, CdA was well tolerated, but the potential increased risk for secondary malignancies requires additional follow-up evaluation. CdA can now be considered as one of the best agents for the treatment of HCL.
