The Cancer Blog: CML Patients who Have Stopped Responding to Gleevec Have Options

In this blog, readers discuss American Society of Hematology study results which demonstrate that treatment with Sprycel (dasatinib) provides better outcomes compared to administering higher doses of Gleevec (imatinib) in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). In the clinical trial, the patients were either treated with Sprycel or increased doses of Gleevec to see who had the better response.
