The combination of venetoclax (Venclexta) and obinutuzumab (Gazyva) reduced the risk of disease progression or death versus obinutuzumab plus chlorambucil in treatment-naïve patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) with comorbidities.

Several patients experienced serious grade 3 or 4 adverse events, with neutropenia being the most common (38.5%). Although no clinical TLS was reported, 2 patients developed laboratory TLS. Neither event, however, resulted in treatment delays or dose modification.
