Dr. O'Connor on Acalabrutinib Versus Ibrutinib in MCL

Owen O'Connor, MD, PhD
Published: Wednesday, Jan 03, 2018



Owen O'Connor, MD, PhD, professor of medicine and experimental therapeutics, director of the Center for Lymphoid Malignancies, Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center at Columbia University Medical Center, discusses acalabrutinib (Calquence) versus ibrutinib (Imbruvica) for the treatment of patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL).

Acalabrutinib is seen to be a cleaner, more selective BTK inhibitor, says O’Connor. It hits fewer kinases than ibrutinib, which could mean better tolerability, he adds.
