Ibrutinib failure as a result of progressive CLL or Richter's Transformation

This week I'm posting another interview that took place at ASH 2016 with Dr. Adrian Wiestner from the NIH where we discussed ibrutinib failure as a result of progressive CLL or Richter's Transformation. You can view my summary, and watch the interview here: cllsociety.org/2017/06/ibru...

We have posted interviews and articles about research that is being conducted to study treatment options for patients with relapsed or refractory CLL. On occasion we will make our readers of a clinical trial that is starting that might be of interest. Today we have posted some information about a trial for patients with relapsed refractory CLL who have received 2 or more prior treatments, including treatment with a BTK inhibitor such as ibrutinib or acalabrutinib. You can read more about it here: cllsociety.org/2017/06/new-...

Stay strong

We are all in this together

Thank you. I have a better understanding of how/why RS can happen.
