The FDA has approved the combination of venetoclax (Venclexta) and obinutuzumab (Gazyva) for the frontline treatment of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma.
“Venclexta plus Gazyva is the only chemotherapy-free option of fixed duration that provides durable responses to help people live longer without progression of their disease, compared to a standard of care,” Sandra Horning, MD, chief medical officer and head of Global Product Development, at Roche (Genentech), which manufactures venetoclax (collaboration with AbbVie) and obinutuzumab, said in a press release.
