Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK) is a central mediator of B-cell receptor (BCR) signaling essential for normal B-cell development. Ibrutinib is an oral BTK inhibitor that induces apoptosis and inhibits migration and adhesion of malignant B-cells. Updated results of this international, multicenter, phase 2 study of single agent ibrutinib in relapsed or refractory MCL will be presented. Ibrutinib 560 mg PO QD was administered continuously until disease progression. Tumor response was assessed every 2 cycles (one cycle = 28 days). The study enrolled 115 patients (65 bortezomib-naïve, 50 bortezomib-exposed); 111 patients were treated; 110 were evaluable for response. Baseline characteristics included: median age 68 years, time since diagnosis 42 months, number of prior treatments 3; bulky disease (<10 cm) 13%, prior stem cell transplant 10%, high risk MIPI 49%. Median time on treatment was 9.2 months; 53% of patients remain on therapy. Median PFS was 13.9 months and DOR has not yet been reached. Responses increased with longer treatment: comparing to previous data described at ASH 2011, the CR rate increased from 16% to 39%, and the ORR increased from 69% to 75%.
