PURPOSE This phase I expansion-cohort study evaluated the safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and preliminary efficacy of the pan-PI3K inhibitor pilaralisib (SAR245408/XL147) in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or relapsed or refractory lymphoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients were treated with the maximum tolerated dose of(More)
Over the past two decades, slow but deliberate progress has been made in understanding the genetics of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and how the surrounding microenvironment influences leukemia cell survival. The complexity of CLL with respect to different chromosomal aberrations, lack of a common aberrant signaling pathway activation, and associated(More)
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), the most common adult leukemia, remains incurable despite advancements in treatment regimens over the past decade. Several expression profile studies have been pursued to better understand CLL pathogenesis. However, these large-scale studies only provide information at the transcriptional level. To better comprehend the(More)
Immunosuppression is a prevalent clinical feature in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients, with many patients demonstrating increased susceptibility to infections as well as increased failure of an antitumor immune response. However, much is currently not understood regarding the precise mechanisms that attribute to this immunosuppressive phenotype(More)
Otlertuzumab (TRU-016) is a humanized anti-CD37 protein therapeutic that triggers direct caspase-independent apoptosis of malignant B cells and induces antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity. Patients with relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) received either otlertuzumab (20 mg/kg) weekly by IV infusion for two 28-day cycles then every 14(More)
