TG Therapeutics, Inc.

Michael S. Weiss, the Company’s Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated, “We are extremely encouraged by the data published demonstrating that umbralisib monotherapy induced durable responses and enhanced progression-free survival in patients who were unable to tolerate their prior BTKi or PI3K delta therapy. Despite many advances in the treatment of CLL in recent years, early termination of kinase inhibitors due to tolerability is an emerging issue leaving too many CLL patients without adequate therapy.” Mr. Weiss continued, “With our rolling BLA submission recently initiated for ublituximab in combination with umbralisib for patients with CLL, and our ongoing clinical studies evaluating triplet regimens in this disease, we remain committed to addressing unmet needs in CLL.” The manuscript includes data from 51 chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients who were previously treated with and became intolerant to prior BTK or PI3K inhibitor therapy (44 BTK intolerant and 7 PI3K intolerant patients). Patients were treated with 800 mg of umbralisib once daily. The primary endpoint was progression-free survival (PFS). Safety data was available from all patients enrolled (n=51). Key highlights from this manuscript include:.
