PART ONE: Nicholas Short, EHA 2022: Ponatinib and blinatumomab in patients with PH+ALL: Results of a phase II study
In Part One of this video interview, Prof Nicholas Short (The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA) discusses his phase II trial looking at ponatinib and blinatumomab for patients with Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. A total of 55 patients were treated and the combination therapy showed complete molecular response. These data could present a potential paradigm shift in treatment options for Philadelphia chromosome-positive ALL.
Abstract: S114: ‘PONATINIB AND BLINATUMOMAB FOR PATIENTS WITH PHILADELPHIA CHROMOSOME-POSITIVE ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA: UPDATED RESULTS FROM A PHASE II STUDY’ was presented at the EHA annual meeting 2022.
