Jacqueline C. Barrientos, MD, associate professor, The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, Northwell Health, discusses ibrutinib (Imbruvica) in elderly populations with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).

The 3-year follow-up of the registration trial of ibrutinib in elderly patients with CLL showed promising response rates, says Barrientos, making it her go-to drug for this population.

Additionally, combinations with ibrutinib are in the pipeline, such as ibrutinib plus obinutuzumab (Gazyva).
