The FDA has granted an accelerated approval to venetoclax (Venclexta) for use in combination with azacitidine or decitabine or low-dose cytarabine for the treatment of adult patients with newly-diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who are aged 75 years or older, or who have comorbidities that preclude use of intensive induction chemotherapy.

The accelerated approval of venetoclax in AML is contingent on the results of a confirmatory trial.
