The development of novel agents for treating chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) has transformed the field in recent years. In this video, recorded at the 23rd Congress of the European Hematology Association (EHA) in Stockholm, Sweden, William Wierda, MD, PhD, of the MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, speaks about the most promising novel agents on the scene. He includes: PI3K inhibitors; checkpoint inhibitors and their use for combatting Richter’s transformation; reversible BTK inhibitors; and cellular strategies like CAR T-cells.
