Venetoclax

Overview

Venetoclax is a type of drug called a Bcl-2 inhibitor. The Bcl-2 protein is found on some cancer cells, and helps them survive, sometimes making them more resistant to treatment. Venetoclax works by blocking the action of the Bcl-2 protein, which may help to cause cancer cell death.

Published Results

Phase III BELLINI: Updated Results With Venetoclax or Placebo Plus Bortezomib/Dexamethasone in Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma

May 31, 2020

  • Venetoclax added to Vd significantly improved PFS, ORR, and MRD negative rates in patients with R/R multiple myeloma but was associated with worse OS outcomes
  • Increased incidence of deaths attributed to infections
  • (11;14) cytogenetic marker associated with favorable risk-benefit profile for survival outcomes with venetoclax + Vd combination
  • Investigators conclude that the results support a t(11;14) biomarker-driven approach for venetoclax development in R/R multiple myeloma
