Elevated risk of chronic lymphocytic leukemia and other indolent non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas among relatives of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia

By Lynn R. Goldin, Magnus Björkholm, Sigurdur Y. Kristinsson, Ingemar Turesson and Ola Landgren

Abstract

Previous studies have shown increased familial risk for chronic lymphocytic leukemia. This study by Goldin and colleagues examines the risk of lymphoid cancer development in first degree relatives of these patients. These data provide a compelling argument for focused studies of germline susceptibility genes and SNP associations in this at-risk population. See related perspective article on page 606
