The combination of ibrutinib (Imbruvica) plus rituximab (Rituxan) improved progression-free survival (PFS) versus rituximab alone in patients with Waldenström macroglobulinemia enrolled in the phase III iNNOVATE (PCYC-1127) trial.

The FDA approved single-agent ibrutinib for patients with WM in January 2015, based on results from a phase II study.
