Tycel J. Phillips, MD, on Marginal Zone Lymphoma: Efficacy and Safety of Parsaclisib

2020 ASH Annual Meeting & Exposition

Advertisement

Tycel J. Phillips, MD, of the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center, discusses phase II data from the CITADEL-204 study, showing that patients with relapsed or refractory marginal zone lymphoma who were not previously treated with a Bruton’s tyrosine kinase inhibitor achieved rapid and durable responses with single-agent parsaclisib. Comparable results were also observed in patients with nodal, extranodal, or splenic disease (Abstract 338).

Curtis Lachowiez, MD, on AML: Venetoclax in Combination With Standard Intensive Induction/Consolidation Therapy

Curtis Lachowiez, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses an interim analysis of a phase Ib/II study showing that venetoclax plus chemotherapy represents an effective regimen, particularly in patients with newly diagnosed and relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia. The regimen appears to be an effective bridge to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (Abstract 332).
