ASPEN trial: Zanubrutinib versus ibrutinib for patients with Waldenström macroglobulinemia

Jun 3, 2020

During the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, the Lymphoma Hub was pleased to speak to Constantine Tam, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne, AU. In this video, he discusses the phase III ASPEN trial, where treatment with the two Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitors, zanubrutinib and ibrutinib, were compared in patients with Waldenström macroglobulinemia.

Constantine Tam, explains the mechanism of action of the two drugs, the patient response rates and safety results of the two treatment arms. He also explains that although the trial did not meet its primary endpoint (very good partial response), zanubrutinib showed greater tolerability and safety compared to ibrutinib.
