Barbara Eichhorst, EHA 2022: What did the GAIA/CLL13 study teach us about the impact of venetoclax and obinutuzumab in fit patients with CLL?
Prof Barbara Eichhorst (University Hospital Cologne, Cologne, Germany) discusses the impact of venetoclax plus obinutuzumab on the treatment of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) who are unfit for chemoimmunotherapy.
The abstract ‘TIME-LIMITED VENETOCLAX-OBINUTUZUMAB +/- IBRUTINIB IS SUPERIOR TO CHEMOIMMUNOTHERAPY IN FRONTLINE CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA (CLL): PFS CO-PRIMARY ENDPOINT OF THE RANDOMIZED PHASE 3 GAIA/CLL13 TRIAL’ (Abstract: LB2365) was presented at the EHA2022 Congress, 9-12 June 2022.
