New data show patients with mantle cell lymphoma who were treated with ibrutinib in a community setting had similar outcomes to patients given the Bruton’s tyrosine kinase inhibitor in a clinical trial setting, a retrospective study showed.
Results from the study were published in Blood and showed that obinutuzumab plus ibrutinib and venetoclax as treatment of patients with relapsed and untreated mantle cell lymphoma achieved high response rates with favorable tolerability.
During the Targeted Oncology Case Based Peer Perspectives event, Javier L. Munoz, MD, Hematologist/Oncologist Director, Lymphoma Program Mayo Clinic, discussed the case of 60-year-old patient with peripheral T-cell lymphoma.
The treatment landscape of mantle cell lymphoma has been enriched with the development of several targeted therapies, but patients considered to have high-risk disease tend to have a worse prognosis, despite the latest development in the field.
Obinutuzumab with dexamethasone plus high-dose cytarabine and cisplatin generated good activity for inducing bone marrow minimal residual disease negativity in patients with mantle cell lymphoma who are eligible for transplant.
