What is this summary about?: This is a plain language summary of a publication describing long-term results from the RESONATE-2 study with up to 8 years of follow-up. The original paper was published in Blood Advances in June 2022. What were the results?: Researchers looked at 269 adults with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) who had not received any treatment for their CLL/SLL. Study participants were randomly divided into two groups: 136 participants received treatment with a drug called ibrutinib, and 133 participants received treatment with a drug called chlorambucil. Participants in the study were treated and followed for up to 8 years, with results showing that more participants who took ibrutinib (59%) were alive without worsening of their disease at 7 years after starting treatment than participants who took chlorambucil (9%). Almost half of the participants (42%) were able to stay on ibrutinib treatment for up to 8 years. What do the results of the study mean?: In people with CLL or SLL, more participants who were taking ibrutinib were alive without worsening of their disease after 7 years compared with participants who took chlorambucil. Clinical Trial Registration: NCT01722487 (ClinicalTrials.gov) Clinical Trial Registration: NCT01724346 (ClinicalTrials.gov).

Abstract

What is this summary about?: This is a plain language summary of a publication describing long-term results from the RESONATE-2 study with up to 8 years of follow-up. The original paper was published in Blood Advances in June 2022. What were the results?: Researchers looked at 269 adults with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) who had not received any treatment for their CLL/SLL. Study participants were randomly divided into two groups: 136 participants received treatment with a drug called ibrutinib, and 133 participants received treatment with a drug called chlorambucil. Participants in the study were treated and followed for up to 8 years, with results showing that more participants who took ibrutinib (59%) were alive without worsening of their disease at 7 years after starting treatment than participants who took chlorambucil (9%). Almost half of the participants (42%) were able to stay on ibrutinib treatment for up to 8 years. What do the results of the study mean?: In people with CLL or SLL, more participants who were taking ibrutinib were alive without worsening of their disease after 7 years compared with participants who took chlorambucil. Clinical Trial Registration: NCT01722487 (ClinicalTrials.gov) Clinical Trial Registration: NCT01724346 (ClinicalTrials.gov).
