Ibrutinib plus fludarabine/cyclophosphamide/rituximab (FCR) induces deep responses in previously untreated young patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), with 39% of evaluable patients achieving complete response with bone marrow minimal residual disease negativity (BM MRD-neg) and 89% achieving BM MRD-neg, significantly higher than the 20% rate seen historically with FCR alone.
In pooled data from 3 randomized studies, the benefit of ibrutinib on progression-free and overall survival is most marked in patients with CLL/SLL with del11q, which is not the case with ofatumumab, chlorambucil, or bendamustine/rituximab.
Progression-free survival for treatment-naive ibrutinib-treated chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic leukemia (CLL/SLL) patients was similar regardless of age subgroup, whereas it was shorter for chlorambucil-treated patients aged ≥75 years compared with those aged 65 to
The combination of nivolumab and ibrutinib has activity in patients with relapsed, refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and Richter transformation.
With a median time on study of 28.6 months, ibrutinib demonstrated an 88% reduction in risk of progression or death in an elderly chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic leukemia patient population, with treatment-limiting adverse events decreasing in frequency with longer follow-up.
After 5 years of follow-up, single-agent ibrutinib continues to show durable responses in patients with treatment-naive or relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic leukemia, including those with del17p, del11q, or unmutated IGVH.
A definitive diagnosis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) differentiating it from other rheumatic and autoimmune diseases can be challenging, because of a lack of definitive tests with sufficient sensitivity and specificity, as well as the absence of reliable biomarkers.
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) often affects women of childbearing age. Pregnant women with SLE are known to be at increased risk of miscarriage and other complications during pregnancy.
Two important studies presented at the American College of Rheumatology annual meeting held in San Diego, California from October 25-30, 2013 analyzed the prevalence of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and lupus nephritis in the US population, as well as the impact of SLE on employment and work productivity in American workers.
Blisibimod is a subcutaneously administered inhibitor of B-cell activating factor (BAFF) that has been evaluated in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in the phase 2b PEARL-SC trial and in an ensuing open-label extension study (NCT01305746).
