Long-Term Outcomes of Early CP CML Patients who have Achieved CCyR but Not MMR after 24 Months on Frontline Imatinib Therapy

Although failure to achieve molecular response milestones on tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) therapy for chronic phase (CP) chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) means that switching to a different TKI is needed to limit the risk of progression and death, there is insufficient data to show long-term outcomes in the patients who were in a molecular failure after 24 months.

Mauro BCR-ABL1 tyrosine kinase inhibitors have dramatically improved outcomes for patients with chronic myeloid leukemia, and current studies are investigating whether some patients may be able to suspend therapy yet maintain response in a state known as “treatment-free remission” (TFR). Results from ongoing studies suggest that ≈ 40% to 60% of patients in sustained (generally ≥ 2 years) deep molecular response (defined as a 4-log or deeper reducti...

We describe the clinicopathologic features of 17 patients who had a hematologic malignancy of various types, were treated, and subsequently developed a lymphoproliferative disorder (LPD). There were 10 men and 7 women with a median age of 59 years (range, 36 to 83 y). The primary hematologic neoplasms included: 5 chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma, 3 plasma cell myeloma, 2 acute monoblastic leukemia, and 1 case each of mixed-phenotype acute leukemia, chronic myeloid leukemia, splenic marginal zone lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia, and peripheral...

Results from ongoing studies suggest that ≈ 40% to 60% of patients in sustained (generally ≥ 2 years) deep molecular response (defined as a 4-log or deeper reduction in BCR-ABL1 transcripts, depending on the study) who attempt TFR may successfully remain off treatment.

Dasatinib is a potent tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) of BCR-ABL. Approved dose in the chronic phase is 100mg daily. This is however associated with notable side effects mainly myelosuppression and pleural effusion, leading to dose reductions/interruptions.
