Hairy Cell Leukemia

Hairy cell leukemia is a cancer of the bone marrow and blood, where white blood cells called lymphocytes become abnormal. Under the microscope the lymphocyte cells look hairy, thus the name.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.

Before beginning treatment, ask your doctor about any clinical trials you should consider. Learn more about clinical trials for cancer patients.
