Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitors have greatly improved the spectrum of treatment options in mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) [1,2,3,4]. Acalabrutinib is a highly selective, orally administered, and potent BTK inhibitor with limited off-target activity . Acalabrutinib was approved in 2017 by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of relapsed/refractory MCL based on clinical data from the open-label, multicenter, phase 2 ACE-LY-004 study of acalabrutinib 100 mg twice daily . Here, we present updated results from the ACE-LY-004 study after a median 26-month follow-up.
