Peter Hillmen, MD, PhD, from St. James’ University Hospital, Leeds, UK gives an overview of the RESONATE-2 trial (NCT01722487), a randomized Phase III trial of ibtrutinib in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). The trial compared ibrutinib to chlorambucil and showed a significant improvement in progression-free survival (PFS), which was the primary endpoint, and further an overall survival (OS) advantage for patients on the ibrutinib arm. Overall, ibrutinib was well tolerated according to Prof Hillmen.
