You can read about how it works, the data that has been released and ongoing clinical trials here. [http://cllsociety.org/2016/05/ipi-145-duvelisib-cll/]In other news, the FDA expanded the Imbruvica® (ibrutinib) label to include overall survival data in previously untreated CLL and added a new indication for small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) patients.
