A Phase II Study of Venetoclax (ABT-199) Added to Ibrutinib in Patients with High-Risk CLL
MD Anderson Study Status
This phase II trial studies how well venetoclax and ibrutinib work in treating patients with high-risk chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as venetoclax, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Ibrutinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving venetoclax and ibrutinib may work better in treating patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
