Ibrutinib Treatment Shows Efficacy and Tolerability in Heavily Treated CLL Patients Following Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplant

You have to admire Pharmacyclics advertising capability. Here they are showing how effective Ibrutinib (Imbruvica) is on a tough to treat bunch of CLL patients. "These patients had a median of five prior therapies and 63% were high-risk del 17p CLL patients. The estimated median progression-free survival (PFS) at 24 months was 76.6%. All patients had previously undergone allogeneic stem cell transplants."
