Join CLL Society and Dr. Matthew Davids from Dana Farber Cancer Institute for the webinar The Evolving Role of BTKi’s in CLL. The targeted therapy Bruton tyrosine kinase inhibitors (BTKi’s) have come a long way since revolutionizing CLL treatment with the arrival of ibrutinib. There are now other BTKi options such as acalabrutinib, zanubrutinib, and the next generation non-covalent BTK Inhibitor, pirtobrutinib. Take a deep dive into different BTKi’s, how they work, how they compare to each other and other treatment options, potential side effects, and the future role of these therapies.
