 Leukaemia (chronic myeloid) - imatinib (No. 70)
NICE has recommended that imatinib should be the first treatment considered for an adult with the Philadelphia-chromosome type of CML in the chronic phase.
If a person has been taking imatinib for CML while in the chronic phase, but still goes on to the accelerated or blast crisis phase, NICE has recommended that imatinib treatment is continued only as part of a research study.
If a person in the chronic phase of CML is already taking interferon-alpha, the choice about whether to change to imatinib depends to some extent on how well the interferon-alpha is working and how well the person is feeling.
