Despite improvements in first-line treatment of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL), the outcome of relapsed T-ALL remains dismal with less than 7% achieving a long-term survival. Thus, there is an unmet need for new treatment strategies to improve outcomes in this setting. Suppression of apoptosis is one of the hallmarks of anticancer drug resistance. Hence, over the past few years, antiapoptotic proteins have become an attractive target for therapeutic intervention in several hematologic malignancies. Venetoclax (ABT-199) is a novel, orally bioavailable small-molecule inhibitor of B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL-2), a key regulator of the intrinsic apoptotic pathway. Recent preclinical studies have suggested that inhibition of BCL-2 may be a novel therapeutic strategy for patients with T-ALL. Herein, we report a case of clinical response to venetoclax in combination with a hypomethylating agent in a patient with relapsed T-ALL after allogeneic stem cell transplant and review the existing literature.Copyright © 2020.
