Venetoclax is a selective B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL2) inhibitor, which is approved to treat elderly patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). A total of 60 patients with a median age of 67 years from different centers were included in the final analysis. Our real-life data support the use of venetoclax in patients with both newly diagnosed and relapsed high-risk MDS and AML.
