"Miracle" Cancer Drug Gleevec Can be Toxic to the Heart

.... The genes ABL and BCR become fused and produce a hybrid BCR-ABL enzyme that is always active. The overactive BCR-ABL, in turn, drives the excessive proliferation of white blood cells that is the hallmark of CML. According to Dr. Force, 10 patients taking Gleevec at the University of Texas’ M.D. Anderson...
