Venclexta (Venetoclax) granted U.S. FDA approval for the treatment of patients with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)

Venclexta (Venetoclax) is the first FDA-approved treatment that targets the B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL-2) protein, which supports cancer cell growth and is over-expressed in many patients with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL).

The patient must have been previously treated with at least one other approved treatment protocol without success. Venclexta (Venetoclax) may be the Holy Mary drug to try when everything else failed.

Patients on the Venclexta (Venetoclax) regime must be monitored as their can be severe side effects. During Human Trails a number of patients developed upper respiratory issues such as Pneumonia.

Patients also have to maintain a level of hydration – 1.5 to 2 liters per day. If averse symptoms arise then hydration may be have to be added intravenously.

I think the biggest issue to patients getting access to this drug, is that the reported cost of the drug is approx $100,000 US per year.
