The combination of ibrutinib (Imbruvica), cyclophosphamide, fludarabine, and obinutuzumab (Gazyva) is currently being tested at MD Anderson in younger patients with a mutated immunoglobulin heavy chain variable gene.

Additionally, a study of ibrutinib plus venetoclax (Venclexta) is currently ongoing, and data on that combination will be presented at this year’s ASH Annual Meeting.
