A couple of days at the beach was just what I needed to get over the jet lag from the multiple trips I’ve taken in the past month. This week I’m posting an interview I had with Dr. Anthony Mato from UPenn when we talked at ASH 2016 about the real-world research he has been doing patients being treated with ibrutinib both in the community and academic settings, and not just within clinical trials. You can view my summary, watch the interview or read the transcript here.
We’re working on the content for the next issue of The CLL Tribune, so if you have a question for our Ask the Doctor section, you can submit it here. No question is too silly to ask and you can be sure others have the same questions.
