Hi all - As you know, countless medical journals and news outlets have documented the remarkable breakthroughs in treating CML patients with with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). But those who are now living with CML and taking TKIs have countless questions about how the drugs work, the long term impact, the reasons for the development of additional drugs and the potential for cure.
This event from the National CML Society (U.S.) addresses many of those questions. Attendees will hear directly from leading specialists and researchers from the University of Massachusetts who have an in-depth understanding of new therapeutic advances which will soon be available. These advances include those that further address mutations, as well as research focused on the eradication of Leukemic Stem Cells which many believe is the key to an eventual cure.
