Richard Furman, MD, discusses the Phase III trial of idelalisib, a first-in-class oral kinase inhibitor and highly selective inhibitor of the delta isoform of PI3 kinase, used in combination with rituximab. The data show better progression-free survival and objective response rates compared with rituximab plus placebo in CLL patients who had already received standard treatments and were not considered candidates for additional chemotherapy.
