Dr Piers Blombery - University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia

Dr Piers Blombery speaks to ecancer at ASH 2018 about the resistance mechanism venetoclax in patients with progressive CLL.

He explains that venetoclex is an effective treatment for CLL however the majority of patients will relapse and it has been found that this is caused by the Gly101Val mutation of BCL2.

Dr Blombery notes that there are ways of tackling this mutation including using time-limited therapy as the mutation did not develop until 2 years of therapy.
