Prof Andrew Wei speaks to ecancer at the 2019 ASH meeting in Orlando about results from the QUAZAR AML-001 trial.

The trial aim was to investigate if maintenance therapy with CC-486 (an oral formulation of azacitidine) could lead to improvements in overall survival of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) patients in first remission.

Prof Wei reports improvements in overall survival, relapse-free survival and benefits across different prognostic subsets of AML.
