Prof Alexander Perl speaks to ecancer at the 2019 European Hematology Association (EHA) Annual Meeting about the updated results from the AMIRAL study looking at the use of gilteritinib versus salvage chemotherapy in patients with FLT3-mutated relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukaemia (AML).
He explains that patients were randomised 2:1 to either single agent gilteritinib or investigator's choice standard chemotherapy.
Prof Perl explains that the gilteritinib arm showed higher response rates and also improved survival.
