New this week!
PI3K inhibitors have been largely neglected in CLL due to the tremendous success of ibrutinib, a BTK inhibitor. Both classes of drugs block the B cell receptor and are very effective in controlling CLL, but the side effects are different. At ASH 2018, Dr. Davids shares the latest encouraging research on duvelisib.
