This activity features insights from leading clinicians on the evidence that links the underlying mechanistic principles of Bruton tyrosine kinase inhibition with lessons arising from major clinical studies of first- and second-generation BTK agents in the chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) setting. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Discuss the implications of mechanistic and selectivity difference among first- and second-generation BTK inhibitors in the context of CLL care, Summarize updated clinical evidence and practice guideline recommendations for the use of BTK inhibitors in treatment-naïve and relapsed CLL, Recommend single-agent, sequential, or combination strategies using BTK inhibitors in treatment-naïve or relapsed CLL and in patients unable to tolerate BTK inhibitor therapy, Manage the unique spectrum of toxicity associated with the use of BTK inhibitors in patients with CLL.
