Dr. Rai has been involved in diagnosing and treating CLL for 40 years and his publication of the “Rai” prognostic categorization of CLL in Blood in 1975 was a seminal paper incorporating basic clinical findings into a powerful prognostic schema that continues to be used by physicians and clinical investigators today. Through a longtime collaboration with Nicholas Chiorazzi, MD, and other CLL scientists at the Feinstein Institute, Dr. Rai and colleagues helped to establish the importance of fludarabine, now a standard-of-care treatment for CLL, and demonstrated the effectiveness of cladribine in treating hairy cell leukemia.
