ASCO 2014: Dr. Kipps on ABT-199 and ROR1: "Cancer is not an alien from outer space, cancer is us"


In my latest post on my blog ( ), I have an interview with Dr. Kipps from ASCO earlier this year that helps explain why ABT-199 could be such a potent (and dangerous) weapon in fighting CLL and why the development of therapies directed against ROR1 are so exciting.

I love how Dr. Kipps uses analogies to explain and make accessible complex concepts. His general discussion on the nature of cancer is very thoughtful.

I comment on where I see the need for more research and my excitement and my worries.

Stay strong

  • Fascinating and informative as always Brian. The video holds much promise for the future and not just for CLL . Dr Kipps explains things so well in ways we can all understand.

    Thank you for the work you are doing to share this information with us.


  • We are lucky to have researchers such as Kipps working for us.

  • I agree with you Doc. I'm glad you are feeling good.
