Since I'm a first line treatment - Sprycel patient (excluding a couple of weeks on Gleevec before we decided we wanted to start off with Sprycel), I am curious if Sprycel fails for me, will Gleevec or Tasigna work? The data is more supportive of patients who fail Gleevec and then switch to Tasigna and Sprycel and achieve a better response, but since Sprycel is just newly approved as a first line treatment, is there any data or info re: relapses while on Sprycel? What I've read is Sprycel is the most potent of the TKIs...is that true?
I achieved CCyR in November 2010, but lost that response and am FISH 5% as of March 2011. Not too worried yet, but feeling a little less secure than I felt before this last FISH.
