    My husband is starting 4th round of inqovi, procrit and zarxio weekly injections. His bm biopsy shows no improvement. Dr is prescribing Venetoclax. Does anyone have any literature or research on this? Thank you for your assistance. Hoping to begin transplant procedure soon.

    The Venetoclax is very effective but the dosage is tricky. I was on azacitidine for 3 cycles with no effect. Then the doctor added Venetoclax. After a month, my biopsy showed the blasts reduction but my blood counts dropped to very low number. Eventually, he reduced the Venetoclax dosage by 75% and also shortened the length when it was taken. My blood counts improved and have been normal for several months. I think you can googled “ventoclax” or its brand name “Venclexta” and should get many hits on the manufacturer’s site.
