Abstract

In previously untreated CLL patients with advanced disease a high response rate is obtained from first-line fludarabine and prednisone and no benefit is derived from the addition of IFN-alpha to this regimen. The achievement of a good quality response to therapy was the only independent predictor of a prolonged response.
