Transcript

As single agents, our IDH inhibitors ivosidenib and enasidenib, their responses as single agents are modest at best. You’re looking at CR [complete response] rates of about 20%, but in combination with therapies like hypomethylating agents, we’re likely to see increased response rates in that setting. And that will make these IDH inhibitors a more attractive option for relapsed/refractory patients because you’re combining it with an agent like hypomethylating agents that also have significant activity in AML.
