New this week!
This week we highlight the first part of a longer ASH 2018 interview with Dr. Kipps discussing strategies for preventing and dealing with venetoclax resistance in CLL. Next week he discusses his ROR1 antibody, cirmtuzumab.
We also highlight the first of two trials for high-risk CLL patients. This week we remind you of a trial at Mayo that will study early non-chemo intervention for high risk patients. Dr. Koffman will be at our Mayo Educational Forum April 27 where there will a chance to learn of all their CLL research. Next week we will present an innovative strategy for high risk patients being offered by the NIH.
With the loss of Chris Dwyer, the CLL community has lost a giant. Read Dr. Koffman’s thoughts here.
