Calquence (acalabrutinib) for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia "Have had CLL for 10 years. Joined early MDAnderson ACP196 trial for previously untreated 6 years ago, after having great build up of fluid around lungs. All problems went away within a couple of months after starting treatment. Life is normal with no side effects. Have traveled the world since. Still a trial participant."

OTM · Taken for 6 months to 1 year · March 22, 2022

For Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia "Diagnosed CLL 7 months now August 2021. WBC was 453 . Two weeks after starting treatment Calquence acalbrutinib my WBC dropped to almost half 226. To date I am below 10. Very happy with results. My only side effect from medication long time exposure to direct sun causes headache and could cause skin problems. Told to use sunblock. It is working for me. Pill 100mg 2x day."

For Mantle Cell Lymphoma "Remission after Retuxen and Bendeka was only about 4-5 months at best so this was next after one failure. 1st month was fine- few side effects and obvious symptoms decreased but by the end of month 3 my symptoms returned. Side effects became distressing- GERD with fatty sensations, nightly abdominal pain … so disappointing. It seems odd for a mere patient to review a drug since medicine is hardly straight forward."
