Leukämie-Online / LeukaNET is an independent and vital virtual community for leukaemia patients in German-speaking countries. This web-based network provides support to patients by translating and reporting news about new research publications and various treatment options for leukaemia. The web site also provides knowledgeable information about different forms of the disease, about treatment options and a lot of background information necessary to talk to a patient's physician of choice. Members of the community can participate in a highly frequented discussion forum and ask questions, as well as share their own experience. They can also submit news articles to the web site, review books, suggest web links, or update the patient-friendly glossary on haematology.
Leukämie-Online e.V. has no commercial interests and is not-for-profit. It has been developed, run and financed by patients, and is registered as a charitable organisation in Germany.
Even though the site is in German language only, the site provides links to organisations in English language, as the research reports in English language are a key source of information for patients today. Our Web Links Database contains also references to relevant information in English language on the web.
