Unmet needs and recent updates in CML

The treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) has substantially evolved since the FDA approval of the tyrosine kinase inhibitor imatinib in 2001 – the first targeted therapy for CML. Since then, several second- and third- generation TKIs have emerged in the field, as well as other novel therapies. Despite this, around 20-30% of patients with CML will require changes of treatment due to resistance, intolerance or suboptimal responses and thus alternative treatment approaches are needed.

In this podcast, Joaquin Martinez-Lopez, MD, PhD, of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Madrid, Spain, gives a brief overview of unmet needs and novel therapeutic approaches for patients with CML, as discussed at the 18th International Myeloma Workshop (IMW 2021).
