COVID-19 is prevalent now more than ever in the USA, and as we continue to take sensible actions to minimize our risk, please consider taking a second look at the CLL Society’s four archived COVID-19 Virtual Community Meetings, featuring expert panelists weighing in on this urgent topic to keep you in the know.
CLL Society’s Upcoming Webinar
Please register for the upcoming CLL Society Webinar, MRD: What Should It Mean to Me? featuring Dr. Anthony Mato discussing the growing role of MRD testing and research in CLL management on Friday, August 14 at 12:30 PM ET / 11:30 AM CT / 10:30 AM MT / 9:30 AM PT. Learn more and register here.
This week we once again take up the countdown of Dr. Koffman’s “Top 12 ASCO 2020 Abstracts,” exploring what we can learn from #s 9, 8 and 7.
Dr. Koffman’s ASCO 2020 Top 12 Picks
- #9 A study looking at the impact of premature venetoclax interruption or discontinuation on outcomes in relapsed and refractory CLL patients.
- #8 A study looking at the effect of adding ublituximab to ibrutinib on PFS, ORR, and MRD negativity in previously treated high-risk CLL patients.
- #7 A study looking at tolerability and durable responses of the PI3Kδ inhibitor ME-401 administered on an intermittent schedule in relapsed and refractory follicular lymphoma and other b-cell malignancies.
Ultra-V Clinical Trial Banner
This week’s clinical trial banner features the Ultra-V trial that offers a powerful triplet of therapies (Ublituximab and Umbralisib + venetoclax) that each work orthogonally, or in different ways, to manage the CLL, thus minimizing the chance of developing resistance. Open to CLL patients who need treatment.
