What do real-world data tell us about outcomes with venetoclax/HMA vs 7+3 chemotherapy?
Matthews discusses a national, multicenter, retrospective study comparing venetoclax/HMA and 7+3 chemotherapy in patients aged 60–75 years, newly diagnosed with AML, and without major heart failure or chronic kidney disease, spanning all risk groups and mutational profiles.
