Serologic Response to SHINGRIX Vaccine in Patients With CLL and WM Treated With BTK Inhibitors

Authored by

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia (WM) are known risk factors for zoster reactivation, commonly called shingles. Although a recently FDA-approved recombinant, adjuvanted herpes zoster vaccine (Shingrix) is currently being offered to these populations, no study has specifically evaluated them.

The purpose of the study is to complete a single-arm trial evaluating if patients with CLL or WM, while on treatment with first-line BTK inhibitors, can achieve immunologic response to Shingrix. If effective, this will result in a new, well-tolerated shingles prevention strategy for these patients.

The primary objective is to assess the capability to mount a humoral immune response to Shingrix in patients with CLL or WM under first-line BTK inhibitors.
