Specific Inhibition of BTK Is Effective in B-Cell Malignancies

2012 Cancer Discovery  
Major finding: The BTK inhibitor ibrutinib is well tolerated and active in B-cell cancers. Approach: The optimal biologic dose of ibrutinib was determined based on BTK active site occupancy. Impact: Inhibition of BTK alone can block active BCR signaling in multiple B-cell malignancies.
