Date:11/13/2013

of the Ohio State University, is a world-renowned CLL expert who leads an LLS-funded research team that has been instrumental in advancing ibrutinib. Other LLS-funded researchers, including Jonathan Friedberg, M.D., of University of Rochester and Jennifer Brown, M.D., Ph.D., of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, have also played important roles in clinical trials for ibrutinib.

LLS also helped advance another BTK inhibitor, CC-292 (formerly AVL-292), which showed encouraging activity in an early trial for CLL and lymphoma patients, and is now being tested in combination therapies. LLS partnered with Avila Therapeutics through LLS's Therapy Acceleration Program, from March 2010 until Celgene Corporation acquired Avila in January 2012, bringing critical capital and commercialization expertise to the development of this promising agent.
