Research Report On June 17, 2013, AbbVie Inc. (AbbVie) presented the preliminary results of the Phase I study for ABT-199/GDC-0199, an investigational BCL-2 (B-cell lymphoma 2) selective inhibitor, in patients with high-risk relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), and in patients with relapsed/refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) at the 18th Congress of the European Hematology Association (EHA) in Stockholm, Sweden. Gary Gordon, M.D., Divisional Vice President of Oncology Clinical Development at AbbVie, stated, "The preliminary data presented at EHA further support the ongoing clinical trial program for ABT-199/GDC-0199 via the BCL-2 pathway." Professor Andrew Roberts, Hematologist at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and head of Clinical Translation at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Melbourne, Australia, commented, "High-risk CLL patients are a challenging subgroup to treat, as they tend to have disappointing results with conventional chemotherapy regimens. While still early in the development process, preliminary response rates observed in these patients appear similar to those observed in other CLL patients being treated with ABT-199/GDC-0199. These data justify further investigation of this compound in patients with 17p deletion and fludarabine-refractory CLL."

It's encouraging news for this investigational GLP-1 receptor agonist." Sherry Martin, M.D., Senior Medical Director, Lilly Diabetes added, "These results are a promising step forward in our effort to provide a new, once-weekly GLP-1 treatment option, giving patients another choice to help manage their diabetes."
