UK Sees High Proportion of CLL Cases at Advanced Stages

The percentage of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) cases diagnosed at later stages of the Binet staging criteria is much higher in the UK than in other markets. In most of the seven major markets (7MM: US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Canada), over half of the CLL cases were diagnosed at stage A in 2015, while only 16% or less were diagnosed at stage C.
