Chronic Lymphocytic Lymphoma, Issue 2, 2019 — Part 1: Our interview with Prof Stilgenbauer highlights the following topics as well as cases from his practice:

  • Updated International Workshop on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia guidelines for diagnosis, indications for treatment, response assessment and management of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) (00:00)
  • Genetic abnormalities in CLL; effects of p53 mutations and 17p deletion on prognosis and therapy (02:48)
  • Design and eligibility for the Phase III CLL14 trial of venetoclax/obinutuzumab versus chlorambucil/obinutuzumab for patients with previously untreated CLL and coexisting medical conditions (05:42)
  • Recent data from the Phase III iLLUMINATE, Alliance A041202 and ECOG-E1912 trials comparing ibrutinib-based regimens to chemoimmunotherapy as first-line treatment for patients with CLL (07:51)
  • Results from the CLL14 trial comparing venetoclax to chlorambucil as an addition to fixed-duration obinutuzumab therapy for CLL (10:17)
  • Management of disease relapse on the CLL14 trial; role of minimal residual disease (MRD) assessment in therapeutic decision-making (13:19)
  • Dosing and administration of the recently FDA-approved first-line regimen of venetoclax and obinutuzumab; mitigation of risk for tumor lysis syndrome (16:03)
  • Mechanism of action of venetoclax; role of renal function in the decision to administer this agent (17:02)
  • Emerging data with the combination of ibrutinib or venetoclax with anti-CD20 antibodies (20:05)
  • Del(17p) and/or p53 mutation status and the selection of therapy for patients with CLL (22:09)
  • Role of bendamustine/rituximab in the management of CLL (26:43)
  • Perspective on the efficacy of venetoclax/obinutuzumab versus ibrutinib as first-line therapy for patients with CLL (28:38)
  • Case: A man in his mid-60s with del(17p) CLL and no IGHV mutation experiences a dramatic response to first-line ibrutinib (30:42)
  • Prolonged lymphocytosis during ibrutinib therapy (33:20)
  • Clonal evolution in CLL; importance of monitoring for del(17p) and p53 mutations before treatment initiation (35:35)
  • Sequencing of ibrutinib and venetoclax for patients with CLL; tolerability and quality of life with ibrutinib versus venetoclax (36:59)
  • Management of arthralgias associated with Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitors (40:25)
  • Case: A woman in her mid-70s with del(13q) CLL and no IGHV mutation receives acalabrutinib after experiencing disease progression on multiple lines of therapy, including ibrutinib (42:15)
  • BTK inhibitor-associated headaches and atrial fibrillation (44:18)
  • Efficacy of ibrutinib versus acalabrutinib; ongoing Phase III ACE-CL-006 study comparing acalabrutinib to ibrutinib for previously treated, high-risk CLL (47:31)
  • Case: A man in his late 70s with del(11q) CLL and no IGHV mutation attains a complete response and MRD-negative status with venetoclax and obinutuzumab on the Phase III CLL14 trial (51:59)
  • Side effects of venetoclax/obinutuzumab (53:36)
  • Case: A man in his early 70s with hairy cell leukemia (HCL) and a BRAF mutation experiences disease progression after receiving vemurafenib as second-line therapy (57:25)
  • Activity and tolerability of the recently FDA-approved antibody-drug conjugate moxetumomab pasudotox-tdfk in patients with relapsed/refractory HCL (59:10)
  • Novel approaches under investigation for HCL (1:01:11)
  • Case: A woman in her late 50s develops Richter’s transformation (RT) from CLL to diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) after receiving ibrutinib as second-line therapy (1:03:52)
  • Pathogenesis and frequency of RT in patients with relapsed/refractory CLL (1:06:45)
  • Comparison of the biology of Richter’s transformed versus de novo DLBCL; novel therapies under investigation for RT (1:10:06)
