Dr. Salles on New Agents Being Investigated in Follicular Lymphoma

Gilles Salles MD, PhD
Published: Monday, Apr 10, 2017



Gilles Salles MD, PhD, Centre Hospitalier Lyon-Sud, discusses new agents being investigated for patients with follicular lymphoma.

PI3 kinase inhibitors are currently of interest in patients with follicular lymphoma who have failed prior therapy. A select group of patients will benefit from these drugs and the response generally lasts for 1 year.

A small portion of patients respond to BTK inhibitors, such as ibrutinib (Imbruvica), but only some of the responses are long lasting, explains Salles.

Additionally, immunotherapy has not had much activity as a single agent, but combinations are currently being investigated for patients with follicular lymphoma.
