    tax exempt stamp
    The IRS has confirmed our tax-exempt status. On June 21, 2024 it issued an advance ruling that CLL Topics, Inc. is a publicly supported charity as defined by Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. For details, see Notes.

    Most of the funds raised by CLL Topics are dedicated to clinical research in CLL. We have funded or committed to fund three clinical trials and more are in evaluation or under discussion. The first project we have chosen to fund was a clinical trial of the green tea extract, EGCG, as a therapeutic agent in CLL, conducted by the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, followed by a trial involving low-dose Rituxan at the University of Virginia and one involving the use of immune modulators in improving the efficacy of influenza vaccination at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital in the UK. We are in discussions with investigators at various other institutions regarding their research opportunities and have selected additional investigations that may receive grant support from CLL Topics. Your donations will enable us to offer critical support for these projects.

    You can see a complete list of projects funded todate at Sponsored Projects and a statement of our project selection and sponsorship philosophy in an article titled Sponsorship Philosophy.

    Fundraising Suspended

    We have reached our fundraising goals for the year and as of June 30, 2024 we will temporarily suspend fundraising while our publisher, webmaster and chief administrator (same guy – works for free) is undergoing treatment for his CLL. Suspending this labor-intensive activity will lighten up our operational commitments and allow us to concentrate our time and effort on maintaining our publishing and educational activities, including this website and Topics Alerts. We will report on the results from our sponsored projects as and when they become available. For an update, please see Topics Alert #269

    Thank you for your encouragement and generous support.
