Hairy Cell Leukaemia

Hairy Cell Leukaemia (HCL)

More than 10 clinical trials are currently accepting participants diagnosed with Hairy Cell Leukaemia (HCL)

Hairy cell leukemia (HCL) is a unique and rare type of chronic leukemia. Its name derives from the appearance of the leukemic blood cells, which have small, hair-like extensions on their surface, visible under a microscope. This type of leukemia develops from white cells known as B lymphocytes. Hairy cell leukemia tends to progress slowly and can be managed effectively for many years with appropriate treatment.
