Hagop Kantarjian: New research is expanding inotuzumab use into frontline, for MRD+, and in combination with blinatumomab

Nicholas Short, Associate Professor at the Department of Leukemia at MD Anderson Cancer Center, shared a post by Hagop Kantarjian on X, adding: .

“Our new review on inotuzumab ozogamicin is now online. We cover the clinical development of INO, pivotal studies, and the novel uses of INO in B-ALL, including combination therapies and use in the frontline setting.”

Quoting Hagop Kantarjian’s post:

Inotuzumab approved as monotherapy for R/R ALL but new research is expanding its use into frontline, for MRD+, and in combo with blinatumomab. Best outcomes seen in combinations.”
