BTK Inhibitors

BTK inhibitors – do they have a role to play in reducing the impact of COVID-19?

Research amongst WM patients with COVID-19 shows interesting findings.
There is a suggestion that BTK inhibitors such as ibrutinib, acalabrutinib and zanubrutinib may provide favourable suppression of the immune system resulting in the reduction of inflammatory damage to the lungs due to COVID-19 - the so-called cytokine release syndrome (CRS).
