Mikkael Sekeres, MD, director of the Leukemia Program and vice-chair for Clinical Research at the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute, discusses a phase 2 study of pevonedistat plus azacitidine compared to azacitidine monotherapy for the treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)/chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) or low-blast acute myelogenous leukemia (LB AML).
