Preventing chronic lymphocytic leukaemia thanks to knowledge of your DNA

Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is a form of blood cancer that develops in the bone marrow. The bone marrow contains stem cells that mature into various types of blood cell. In people with CLL there is a problem with the normal formation of blood in the bone marrow, which causes anaemia, poor wound healing and poor resistance to infection. In many cases the disease is present for many years before it is diagnosed.

Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and heredity

The risk of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia.
