Question from George:
Does an 11Q deletion in treatment respond well to Ibrutinib or the other new kinase inhibitors? 

Answer from Dr. Leclair:
Many patients with the 11q deletion will still respond quite well to combination therapies such as fludarabine (Fludara), cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) and rituximab (Rituxan), known by the acronym FCR. The new Idelalisib has been shown effective against CLL with 11q deletion in some clinical trials.
