Risk-adapted dosing of bendamustine and rituximab may be beneficial and tolerable for elderly patients with CLL, a retrospective study found.
Researchers reviewed promising advances in therapy options for patients with CLL and the challenges associated with these new treatments.

Sustained remission of CLL is associated with enrichment of a less-differentiated, early-memory phenotype of T cells in the apheresis product used to make CAR-T therapies.
Infections often precede a formal diagnosis of CLL. Researchers found that antimicrobial use began to rise 6 years prior to CLL diagnosis.
In this study, a cohort of patients with newly diagnosed CLL was followed to identify the incidence of SCC skin cancer and its associated risk factors in this population.

The social media platform can be useful as an education tool for oncologists to stay up to date on new research in oncology — but physicians still need to be mindful of the information sources.
It remains important to interrogate how structural discrimination influences the collection of patient-reported outcomes.
Ibrutinib-mediated macrophage inhibition may underlie an increased risk of invasive fungal infection in patients with CLL treated with this agent.
Obinutuzumab plus venetoclax was associated with improved outcomes compared with obinutuzumab plus chlorambucil, regardless of the presence of unfavorable genetic prognostic factors.
