Hi all just wanted to share some good news with you. I'm 8 cycles in to my phase one trial of Obinutuzimab plus Venetoclax at Barts Hospital in London and am now living back in Australia and commuting every 3 weeks to meet the trial requirements and collect my drugs.
Just had an email from Professor Gribben telling me my cycle 7 CT scan had come back completely clear with no signs of disease. This is big news for me as I am more SLL and it was my lymphadenopathy which was worrying everyone most. I had a post cycle 6 BMB which found MRD of 0.0345% and I'm hoping this will also be clear by my next BMB in two months time.
I am so happy and relieved that this drug combo is working for me. I only had 5 cycles of the obinutuzimab as I developed an allergic reaction to it in the end and it looks like the Venetoclax monotherapy is now working well on its own. I have absolutely no side effects (other than jet lag!). So much hope for all of us.

Best wishes to all
