From ref. , 2000, Fig. 1. Copyright © 2000 Massachusetts Medical Society. ) that would be more effective in CLL. Unfortunately, the toxicity associated with multiple drug regimens did not result in increased survival. Then, a new class of drugs emerged, the nucleoside analogs: fludarabine, 2-chlorodeoxyadenosine (CdA), and 2'-deoxycoformycin (pentostatin, or DCF). The definitive fludarabine study by Rai et al. in 2000 (47) is of importance for several reasons. First clinical responsiveness was based upon published NCI guidelines (120).

From ref. , 1961, Fig. 1. ) noted. All these changes were transient. Although there was no statistically significant increase in fever and infections during the prednisone period compared with the control period, infections in the prednisone-treated subjects were more severe and more difficult to treat. 3. ’s 2000 comparison of chlorambucil with a new drug for CLL called fludarabine (47). In this modern era, two major areas for investigation became evident. First, because extremely wide range of survival time in this disease, clinicians were frustrated by the difficulty of making therapeutic decisions in patients newly diagnosed with CLL.

Survival curves for 145 patients with B-CLL from date of diagnosis, comparing patients whose cells are CD38+ and who have unmutated IgVH genes (n = 34), with those whose cells are CD38– and who have mutated IgVH genes (n = 70) and those whose cells gave discordant results for the two assays (n = 41). (From ref. , 2002, Fig. 5. ) In the initial report by Damle et al. (104,105), a correlation was shown with Ig gene sequence and CD38 expression.
