Dr. Stilgenbauer: Resistance to ibrutinib in relapsed and refractory patients with 17p deletion and News about CLL Meeting across the USA

Friends,

This week in the 2015 Conference Coverage section of the CLL Society website, we have posted a continuation of my interview with Dr. Stephan Stilgenbauer at the American Society of Hematology annual meeting in December 2015 in Orlando. We discussed the criteria that predict resistance to ibrutinib in relapsed and refractory patients with 17p deletion. You can see a summary and view our interview here.
