Title: First Results from KamLAND-Zen

Astract: This talk will present the recent measurement of 136Xe double-beta
decay by KamLAND-Zen. Results for both the two-neutrino and
neutrinoless modes will be discussed, along with important features in
the background spectrum Special attention will be paid to the
appearance of an unexpected background peak just above the Q-value of
the decay, and prospects for its mitigation. Future plans and
sensitivity projections will also be presented.
