Michael Wang, MD, professor in the Department of Lymphoma and Myeloma at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses acalabrutinib (Calquence) in mantle cell lymphoma (MCL).

Acalabrutinib is a second-generation BTK inhibitor that was recently approved by the FDA for the treatment of adult patients with MCL following at least 1 prior therapy.

Wang says that targeted therapies should not be underestimated in this disease, as they are a very powerful alternative to chemotherapy.
