Side-effect of idelalisib and its use in chronic lymphocytic leukemia

Andrew Zelenetz, MD, PhD from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY discusses common side-effects observed in the Phase III clinical trial of idelalisib plus bendamustine and rituximab in rlapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Idelalisib is associated with colitis, pneumonitis, elevated transaminases, increased risk of febrile neutropenia, but these did not affect overall survival (OS).
