Courtney D. DiNardo, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses data from her study of treatment-naive, predominantly older patients with acute myeloid leukemia who are ineligible for intensive therapy. The research shows venetoclax plus azacitidine improved response rates and overall survival compared with azacitidine alone (Abstract LB2601).

Elias Jabbour, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses study findings that showed venetoclax and navitoclax with chemotherapy is well tolerated, with promising efficacy in heavily pretreated patients with relapsed or refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia and lymphoblastic lymphoma. Clinical follow-up, correlative biomarker analysis, and expansion cohort enrollment to assess discontinuous dosing are underway (Abstract S116).

Mature data from continued follow-up may support an alternate dosing regimen for patients with chronic phase chronic myeloid leukemia (Abstract S172).
