Preventing relapse after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (alloHCT) requires novel approaches to identify and augment beneficial GVL alloimmunity. We propose that chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the human

Public Health Relevance

Allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation can cure many hematologic malignancies through beneficial graft-versus-leukemia (GVL) immune responses. However, relapse remains the major cause of death. Chronic Lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most common blood cancer, can be frequently cured following alloHCT via GVL benefit, and CLL MRD response predicts cure. Our novel approaches to identify and augment CLL GVL will improve all transplantation outcomes.
