NCCN is a not-for-profit alliance of 32 leading cancer centers in the United States devoted to patient care, research, and education. The organization creates cancer guidelines that are considered the standard to guide treatment decisions.
Although some treatment options for CLL/SLL may seem similar, every treatment is different. Knowing the differences can help you take an active role in discussing treatment options with your doctor.Blocks up to 100% of BTK
BRUKINSA was designed to block BTK signaling and keep it shut down around the clock. This may help stop the signaling in cancerous B cells.
In 2 clinical trials, BRUKINSA was shown to be much better than some other treatments approved for CLL/SLL. Two types of responses were studied: progression-free survival (PFS) and overall response rate (ORR).
BRUKINSA was shown to be effective, regardless of patients’ age, genetic mutations, or other health conditions such as atrial fibrillation/flutter.
Fewer patients discontinued BRUKINSA due to side effects, 8% for previously untreated (compared to 14% with BR) and 15% for previously treated (compared to 22% with ibrutinib) patients.Flexible dosing
BRUKINSA is an oral treatment that can be prescribed on a dosing schedule that meets your needs.
Meet Wendy, a CLL patient who has been on BRUKINSA for 2 years and 5 months
CLL and SLL are cancers caused by abnormal B cells (also known as B lymphocytes). B cells are a type of white blood cell found in your blood and bone marrow. When B cells develop normally, they help protect the body from infection and disease.
In CLL, cancer cells are found mostly in the blood and bone marrow. In SLL, cancer cells are found mostly in the lymph nodes and spleen. The treatment for CLL and SLL is very similar because they are both caused by abnormal B cells.
