Leukemia Drug Proves Safe and Effective Over the Long Term
Date:11/7/2007

ere reported in study participants, only four cases were considered to be drug-related. During the study, 35 patients discontinued the drug because of adverse events or abnormal test results.

"About half of the patients on the study continue to receive imatinib and 40 percent are in complete cytogenetic response," said Dr. Kantarjian. "No long-term new toxicities have been observed. In particular, the drug-related cardiac toxicity, which was reported to be of concern last year, was quite rare."

This clinical trial was the basis for the first approval of imatinib for CML, which has since become the standard of care for the disease.
