Michael Wang, MD,
Overcoming resistance to BTK inhibitors is the biggest clinical unmet need in the treatment of patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), according to Michael Wang, MD. Patients who progress on treatment with ibrutinib (Imbruvica) and acalabrutinib (Calquence) are often incurable, challenging investigators to find a new avenue of treatment.

According to Wang, the results from ZUMA-2 will read out at the end of 2018.
