Dr Nitin Jain - MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA

Dr Jain speaks with ecancer at the ASH 2017 annual meeting about adding ibrutinib to frontline chemotherapy for CLL patients with mIGHV and without TP53 aberrations.

The trial combination came with an increase in grade 3/4 toxicities which he describes as manageable once identified, and one death attributed to non-trial medication.

Overall, Dr Jain looks forward to further enrollment of trial participants.
