The resulting fusion gene, the BCR-ABL, is responsible for oncogenesis. Imatinib mesylate is a novel molecule, which inhibits the protein product of this fusion gene and hence has been used in the treatment of CML. The present study evaluates 174 patients with CML treated with imatinib mesylate. Of these 174 patients, 97 were in chronic phase, 47 in accelerated phase and 30 patients had blast crisis. Patients in chronic phase received imatinib mesylate in the dose of 400-mg daily, while those in accelerated phase and blast crisis received 600 to 800 mg daily. Of the 97 patients with chronic phase, 49 patients (50.5%) achieved a major (major + complete) cytogenetic response. Of the 47 patients in accelerated phase, 10 patients (21.3%) achieved a major cytogenetic response and in 30 patients with blast crisis, 7 (23.3%) achieved a major cytogenetic response.

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a hematopoietic stem cell disorder characterized by the balanced reciprocal translocation t (9:22).
