Description:
Selecting the optimal treatment for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) has depended, at least partly, on whether less-favorable genetic aberrations are present. Recent results from several clinical trials of new therapeutic options targeting Burton tyrosine kinase, B-cell leukemia/lymphoma 2, and phosphatidylinositol 4, 5-bisphosphate 3-kinase catalytic subunit delta has shown better outcomes, more favorable progression-free survival rates, and potentially improved tolerability for patients with and without high-risk genetic aberrations. Data from ASCO 2021 has added to our knowledge of these therapies for CLL and will be discussed in this engaging webinar.

Learning Objectives:
*Review the results of recently approved and novel agents under investigation for the treatment of CLL
*Integrate new data into the development of treatment plans for CLL
