About Bruton's Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor PCI- 32765PCI-32765 is an orally active small molecule inhibitor of Bruton's tyrosine kinase (Btk) that is being developed by Pharmacyclics for the treatment of patients with B-cell lymphoma or leukemia. Btk plays a prominent role in B-cell lymphocyte maturation by mediating B-cell receptor (BCR) signal transduction. Recent studies indicate that some B-cell lymphomas have kinases that are activated downstream of the BCR and that suppression of this signaling by a Btk inhibitor can induce apoptosis in these cells. BCR signaling is also thought to promote malignant cell expansion and survival in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).

About Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia CLL is the most common type of leukemia, a cancer of the white blood cells.  CLL is a B cell cancer that originates in the bone marrow. Approximately 18,000 patients in the US are diagnosed each year with CLL.  The prevalence of CLL is approximately 86,000 in the US.  The disease is a chronic disease of the elderly with an average survival of about 5 years. Patients commonly receive multiple lines of treatment over the course of their disease. CLL and Small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) are considered the same underlying disease.  SLL is a disease that is limited to the lymph nodes.
