Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Identify and summarize patterns in therapeutic regimens and patient outcomes [ Time Frame: up to 8 years ]
    The primary objective is to 1) describe practice patterns of first line therapy regimens and subsequent therapeutic strategies in patients initiated on therapy for CLL, as well as initiated on second line and subsequent therapies, in the community and academic setting (2) Provide insight into therapeutic regimens and therapy sequence in clinical practice as they relate to clinical outcomes in patients initiated on first-line, second-line or subsequent therapies for CLL.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Summarize Effectiveness of Treatment Regimens [ Time Frame: up to 8 years ]
    Describe any differences in effectiveness associated with treatment regimens, including first-line regimens and subsequent therapeutic strategies in patients actively treated for CLL

  • Health Related Quality of Life Measures Related to Therapeutic Regimens [ Time Frame: up to 8 years ]
    Describe the health-related quality of life of patients actively treated for CLL, and to explore the association of HRQoL with therapeutic regimens, sequences and clinical outcomes.
