Shuo Ma, MD, PhD, assistant professor at Northwestern University in the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses advances in non-chemotherapy regimens for patients with hematologic malignancies.
 
Rituximab in combination with bortezomib and rituximab in combination with lenalidomide have shown success for patients with relapsed/refractory indolent and mantle cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma . Both combinations provide a fairly high response rate in both the frontline setting and the relapse setting, says Ma.

B-cell receptor pathway inhibitors including ibrutinib and idelalisib also offer exciting benefits. Both have shown significant activity across many different forms of b-cell malignancies.
