This medicine is authorised for use in the European Union.


Venclyxto is a cancer medicine used to treat adults with a blood cancer known as chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL).

Venclyxto can be used in combination with rituximab (another cancer medicine) in patients who have received at least one previous treatment.

It can also be used on its own in:

  • patients with particular genetic changes (17p deletion or TP53 mutation) that make them unsuitable for chemo-immunotherapy (a type of cancer treatment). In these patients, Venclyxto is used when medicines known as B‑cell receptor pathway inhibitors (ibrutinib and idelalisib) are not suitable or have failed.
  • patients who do not have these genetic changes after treatments with chemo-immunotherapy and a B‑cell receptor pathway inhibitor have both failed.

Venclyxto contains that active substance venetoclax.
