Answer

Systemic therapy of hairy cell leukemia has changed rapidly in the past 10 years because of new biologic agents (eg, interferons) and new purine analogues. Also, the availability of recombinant human hematopoietic growth factors has improved supportive care during life-threatening infections in these patients.
