There is no doubt to me that Venetoclax is a very exciting development for us in several different blood cancer. Just this month a very helpful and quite detailed review article has been released, I thought I would share a link here.
It is well worth a look whether you are in watch and wait, remission, or coming up for treatment. Venetoclax is available for all patients with CLL in the USA and mostly second line and beyond in the UK and Europe. It also has potential in some other blood cancers.
One of the many aspects of this review is it lists the studies and as you can see there are quite a few now for Venetoclax in CLL and some of them are beginning to be reasonably long. It may well be that this drug, particularly if used in combination, could turn out to be actually curative for some of us.
If anyone has questions about this study this might be a good place to share them and I will even do my best to answer them!
