The first-line combination of ibrutinib (Imbruvica) and obinutuzumab (Gazyva) was associated with a 77% reduction in the risk for disease progression or death compared with chemoimmunotherapy in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma.
Acalabrutinib Monotherapy Produces Durable Response in Mantle Cell Lymphoma
Long-term follow-up of acalabrutinib monotherapy in patients with relapsed/refractory mantle cell lymphoma shows that responses are durable with no new safety signals observed.
Lenalidomide/Rituximab Improves PFS in Indolent Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Antibody-Drug Conjugate Impresses in Relapsed/Refractory DLBCL
The addition of a CD79b-targeted antibody-drug conjugate to bendamustine and rituximab more than doubled overall survival in patients with relapsed/refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

More than 70% of older patients ineligible for intensive chemotherapy for acute myeloid leukemia had complete responses to venetoclax combined with hypomethylating agents, preliminary results from clinical trials have shown.
Next-Generation BCMA CAR T-cell Therapy Effective for Heavily Pretreated Myeloma
The anti-BCMA CAR T cell therapy bb21217 demonstrated an objective response rate of 83.3%, with a very good partial response or better rate of 75% in patients with heavily pretreated relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.
New Prediction Model Improves Personalized Insight Into MDS Survival
An approach using machine learning to analyze genomic and clinical data from patients with myelodysplastic syndromes could replace the gold standard of predicting how long patients may live with the disease.
Mosunetuzumab Shows Promise for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
The CD3 and CD20 bispecific antibody mosunetuzumab demonstrated promising complete remission rates with tolerable toxicity for patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell indolent and aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Anti-PD-1 Plus Umbralisib/Ublituximab Hits 90% Response in CLL
The triplet regimen of pembrolizumab (Keytruda) plus umbralisib and ublituximab reached a 90% response rate in patients with relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Beat AML Trial Proves Feasibility of Rapid Treatment Assignment Following Diagnosis
Initial findings from the Beat AML study showed that rapid genetic testing in patients with AML was feasible and helpful, and that a precision medicine approach is possible for these patients, who must be treated urgently given the disease’s rapid progression.
Liso-Cel Demonstrates Durable Responses in Heavily Pretreated, High-Risk CLL
Lisocabtagene maraleucel appeared tolerable and induced an 81.3% best overall response rate and 43.8% complete response rate in heavily pretreated, high-risk patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia who previously received ibrutinib.
Ibrutinib Efficacy Sustained at 7-Year Analysis for CLL
Single-agent ibrutinib continued to demonstrate strong results after 7 years of follow-up in both the frontline and heavily pretreated, relapsed/refractory setting for patients with CLL and SLL.
Maintenance Ixazomib Extends PFS in Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma
Two-year maintenance therapy with ixazomib led to a 39% improvement in progression-free survival compared with placebo in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma who achieved a partial response to induction treatment with a proteasome inhibitor and/or an immunomodulatory agent following autologous stem cell transplant.
