Answer

In patients with lack of CHR, or whose cytogenetic response had shown 100% Ph+, results of cytogenetic response measured at 3-months, and recommended treatment strategies, are as follows [19] :

  • Ph+  >65%: Switch to different TKI, clinical trial enrollment, or evaluate for HCT
  • Ph+ ≤65%: Continue TKI at same dose
