ASH 2021: Minimal Residual Disease Kinetics Identified as a Predictor of Zanubrutinib-Obinutuzumab-Venetoclax Treatment Response in CLL

Minimal residual disease (MRD) kinetics were found to be predictive of achievement and durability of undetectable MRD with zanubrutinib-obinutuzumab-venetoclax (BOVen) treatment in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), according to trial results presented by LRF grantee Jacob D. Soumerai, MD of Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center.

ASH 2021: High MCL35 Score Is Predictive of Poor Survival in Older Patients with Mantle Cell Lymphoma Treated with Bendamustine-Rituximab

In a study funded in part by LRF and led by LRF Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) and Mantle Cell Lymphoma Consortium (MCLC) member Lisa M. Rimsza, MD, of Mayo Clinic, Phoenix, researchers examined the prognostic value of the MCL35 assay in older patients (aged 65-93) with MCL who were treated with frontline bendamustine (Treanda) plus rituximab (Rituxan).
