Overexpression of the BCL2 is associated with a poor prognosis in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). The assessment of MYC immunohistochemistry (IHC) is becoming optimized, whereas the criteria for BCL2 positivity are highly variable. Furthermore, data on the frequency and prognostic value of BCL2 positivity are conflicting. We aimed to evaluate BCL2 expression by IHC and assess the prognostic significance of the histopathologically-scored BCL2 expression in 456 patients with DLBCL uniformly treated with standard immunochemotherapy (rituximab plus cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone; R-CHOP)...

The BCL2 inhibitor venetoclax achieves responses in ~79% of patients with relapsed or refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (RR-CLL/SLL), irrespective of risk factors associated with poor response to chemo-immunotherapy. A limitation of this targeted therapy is progressive disease (PD) in some patients. To define the risk factors for progression, the clinico-pathological features of PD and the outcomes for patients after venetoclax failure, we analyzed 67 heavily pre-treated patients on three early phase clinical trials...

The B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL2) family of proteins comprise key regulators of apoptosis and are implicated in the pathogenesis of many malignancies, including lymphomas and leukaemias. Targeting of BCL2 proteins can be directly toxic to tumour cells or render them more sensitive to chemotherapy. Inhibition of the anti-apoptotic functions of BCL2 proteins using structure-based design to produce specific inhibitors of protein-protein interactions has been achieved for BCL2, MCL1 and BCL-XL (also termed BCL2L1), providing an armamentarium of new targeted therapies called BH3-mimetics...

ABBV-075 is a potent and selective BET family bromodomain inhibitor that recently entered Phase I clinical trials. Comprehensive preclinical characterization of ABBV-075 demonstrated broad activity across cell lines and tumor models representing a variety of hematological malignancies and solid tumor indications. In most cancer cell lines derived from solid tumors, ABBV-075 triggers prominent G1 cell cycle arrest without extensive apoptosis. In this study, we show that ABBV-075 efficiently triggers apoptosis in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and multiple myeloma (MM) cells...

Treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) has advanced with the introduction of chemoimmunotherapy (CIT) agents that have improved the outcomes of frontline therapy. However, most treated patients will relapse and require subsequent therapy. This review focuses on recent advances in the treatment of relapsed or refractory CLL. Until recently, treatment options for relapsed CLL were of limited efficacy. Retreatment with fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab (FCR) was recommended for patients with a durable response to first-line FCR, although acquired genetic aberrations, impaired marrow reserve, and comorbidities often made this suboptimal therapy for many patients...

B-cell lymphoma-2 (BCL-2) family dysfunction and impairment of apoptosis are common in most B-cell lymphoid malignancies. Venetoclax (Venclexta™, formerly ABT-199, GDC-0199) is a highly selective BCL-2 inhibitor, which mimics its BCL-2 homology 3-domain to induce apoptosis. It was approved for treatment of previously treated chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients with 17p deletion early in 2016. It has also been in clinical trials for other B-cell lymphoid malignancies. Unlike the other recently approved targeted agents idelalisib and ibrutinib, so far there has been no relapse reported in some patients...

Members of the B cell lymphoma 2 (BCL-2) gene family have a central role in regulating programmed cell death by controlling pro-apoptotic and anti-apoptotic intracellular signals. In cancer, apoptosis evasion through dysregulation of specific BCL-2 family genes is a recurring event; accordingly, selective inhibition of specific anti-apoptotic BCL-2 family proteins represents an exciting therapeutic opportunity. A combination of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)-based screening and structure-based drug design has yielded the first bona fide BCL-2 homology 3 (BH3) mimetics, including the BCL-2 and BCL-XL dual antagonist navitoclax, which is the first BCL-2 family inhibitor to show efficacy in patients with cancer...

The recent past has brought pharmacotherapeutic advances that benefit patients with hematologic malignancies. In 2016, two novel hematology drugs were approved and four previously approved hematology drugs were granted expanded use for the treatment of appropriate patient populations by the US Food and Drug Administration. These new approvals and indications represent significant steps forward in patient management: they include the first-in-class B-cell lymphoma 2 inhibitor, venetoclax, the newest targeted therapy available for the treatment of hematologic malignancies; and nivolumab, the first immune checkpoint inhibitor to be approved for treatment of a hematologic malignancy...

Venetoclax is the first BCL2 inhibitor to enter routine clinical practice. It is an orally bioavailable small molecule that binds BCL2 very specifically. Acting as a pharmacological mimic of the proteins that initiate apoptosis (a so-called BH3-mimetic), venetoclax rapidly induces apoptosis in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) cells which express high levels of BCL2 and rely on it to maintain their survival. As a single agent, daily venetoclax treatment induced durable responses in 79% of patients with relapsed or refractory CLL or small lymphocytic lymphoma in a Phase 1 study, including complete remissions in 20% of patients...

Duvelisib, an oral dual inhibitor of PI3K-δ and PI3K-γ, is in phase III trials for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and indolent non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. In CLL, duvelisib monotherapy is associated with high iwCLL (International Workshop on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) and nodal response rates, but complete remissions are rare. To characterize the molecular effect of duvelisib, we obtained samples from CLL patients on the duvelisib phase I trial. Gene expression studies (RNAseq, Nanostring, Affymetrix array and real-time RT-PCR) demonstrated increased expression of BCL2 along with several BH3-only pro-apoptotic genes...

Venetoclax (ABT-199), a B-cell lymphoma-2 (Bcl-2) protein inhibitor, is currently in clinical development for the treatment of hematologic malignancies. We characterized the absorption, metabolism, and excretion of venetoclax in humans. After a single oral dose of [(14)C]venetoclax to healthy volunteers, the recovery of total radioactive dose was 100%, with feces being the major route of elimination of the administered dose, whereas urinary excretion was minimal (<0.1%). The extent of absorption was estimated to be at least 65%...
