Prof Robin Foa speaks to ecancer at the 2019 European Hematology Association (EHA) Annual Meeting about the combination of dasatinib and blinatumomab for the front-line treatment of adult Ph-positive acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL).

He explains that the addition of blinatumomab to dasatinib showed promising results with a rate of complete molecular response of around 65% compared with 25% for dasatinib alone.

Prof Foa highlights that this shows you can get a very high rate of complete molecular response without chemotherapy.
