Farrukh T. Awan, MBBS, associate professor of Internal Medicine, Division of Hematology, Department of Internal Medicine, Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses a phase II trial examining the clinical activity of entospletinib in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) who were previously treated with a B-cell receptor pathway signaling inhibitor.

 

Awan says treatment for CLL is rapidly evolving at this time and many patients are being exposed to kinase inhibitor treatments. He adds that when a patient fails a TKI treatment, further treatment is not well-defined. Data from the phase II trial shows that entospletinib is a well-tolerated compand in patients with CLL.
