Ibrutinib (Imbruvica) has played an important role in the development of treatment for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), and long-term follow-up of the RESONATE and RESONATE-2 studies are evidence of the long-lasting responses with the BTK inhibitor.

, O’Brien, discussed the tremendous impact that has been seen with ibrutinib following the long-term follow-up of the RESONATE studies and highlights where this regimen is headed in the future of treatment for patients with CLL.

OncLive: Can you discuss the long-term data that we have seen with the resonate and RESONATE-2 trials?

O’Brien: We now have 4-year follow-up from the original RESONATE study. That was the randomized trial of ibrutinib versus ofatumumab in relapsed patients, which led to the full approval of ibrutinib. We have seen very good data. The important message from this study is that responses can be very durable and that toxicity does not increase over time.
