Ascentage Pharma Announces First Patient Dosed in Europe in the Phase Ib/II Study of the Bcl-2 inhibitor APG-2575 in Patients with Relapsed/Refractory Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia/Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma

In science and medicine, information is constantly changing and may become out-of-date as new data emerge. All articles and interviews are informational only, should never be considered medical advice, and should never be acted on without review with your health care team.

Presently there is only one approved drug, venetoclax, that takes advantage of CLL’s dependence on turning off the cancer cell’s death cycle. But others are in trials which augurs well for chronic lymphocytic leukemia patients if they prove to be as good a CLL killer as venetoclax.

APG-2575 is a novel molecule that inhibits Bcl-2 as does venetoclax and is now being studied in Europe. For more information, read the press release from Ascentage Pharma here.

CLL Society believes the more treatment options that we patients have, the better.

Stay strong, we are all in this together.
