C.L.L. or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, is a comparatively slow acting
cancer of the blood, where the bone marrow produces excessive white
cells. Normal levels are 4.5 while sufferers can go as high as 97. The
excessive cells overload the spleen and other internal organs. Current
long term treatment is now a drug called MABTHERA.
