Li-7 + Li-7 - fusion reactions?

In the book Nuclear Fusion by Inertial Confinement: A Comprehensive Treatise there is a comprehensive list of the fusion reactions that Li-6 + Li-6 may undergo, see picture below. Now I wonder where I can find the same info on Li-7 + Li-7?

Those reactions are classic side reactions expected from a lithium blanket lining in a 24-7 working fusion reactor. (something that no one has ever made)

Li 7 reactions are just not considered important as it is only a very minor and rare compnent.
