New this week!
There are many powerful combinations of drugs with and without chemotherapy being studied in CLL that offer the promise of being able to stop there with no detectable cancer. At ASH 2018, Dr. Koffman interviewed Dr. Lamanna for her overview of all this research.
Also, this week, FDA approval of the combination of venetoclax and obinutuzumab for treatment naïve CLL patients marks the first fixed duration non-chemotherapy options. The deep responses and clinically significant advantage in terms of progression free and overall survival are hopeful indicators that this will be a serious alternative frontline and perhaps the first of many innovative non-chemo combinations.
