Illustrations CLL active substance

Illustrations on the mode of action of a BTK inhibitor in CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) on the B cells in the lymph nodes.

In chronic lymphocytic leukemia, the number of B cells is abnormally elevated. The lymph nodes are swollen due to the insertion of B cells. The active substance “Ibrutinib” blocks the interaction of BTK (Brutone Tyrosine Kinase) and transcription factor NFkB in the B cells, which enables cell death and thereby reduces their number. As more and more B-cells and also BTK are produced, a continuous intake of the drug is necessary to reduce the number of B-cells.
