Dr Tait Shanafelt - Stanford University, Stanford, USA

Dr Tait Shanafelt speaks to ecancer at ASH 2018 about the efficacy of ibrutinib-based therapy for younger patients with previously untreated CLL and the comparison with the current standard of care.

He explains that the trial was designed to compare this novel treatment of ibrutinib-based therapy with FCR chemoimmunotherapy which is the current gold standard.

Dr Shanafelt reveals that there was found to be an improvement in both progression free survival and overall survival for the novel therapy.
