In this episode, Ayesha talked about a safety warning issued by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Secura Bio’s Copiktra (duvelisib), which is a drug used to treat adults with relapsed or refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and small lymphocytic leukemia (SLL). The FDA flagged the drug after evaluating long-term survival data, which showed that the drug was associated with a higher risk of serious side effects and a possibly increased risk of death.
Ayesha also talked about a new nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)-based molecular research tool for the assessment of the risk of Long COVID, including multi-organ damage and cardiovascular disease risk. The phenomics tool is being developed by Bruker for research purposes and is based on well-characterized metabolic and proteomic biomarkers associated with Long COVID. Hear more about the tool and how it can help patients receive appropriate treatment interventions early for Long COVID.
