It’s exciting times in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) with a lot of new data in expected at the forthcoming 2013 annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology (#ASH13) in New Orleans.  Several products have received Breakthrough Therapy status from the FDA.

At ASCO 2013, Sally Church (@MaverickNY) interviewed Dr Susan O’Brien who is the Ashbel Smith Professor in the Department of Leukemia at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and someone who is making a difference to the lives of CLL patients.

This video was originally published on Pharma Strategy Blog. It’s long (17minutes – took a whole weekend to edit in FCP X) but Dr O’Brien covers a lot of points e.g. IPI-145, what effect does the gamma isoform have in CLL? On ABT-199 she discusses the Tumor Lysis Syndrome seen. Other products discussed include ibrutinib, idelalisib, AV-292 and obinutuzumab.

It’s well worth watching again in the run up to ASH 2013. Subscribers to Premium Content can login in below to view it.
