Abstract Although imatinib induces marked responses in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), resistance is increasingly problematic, and treatment options for imatinib-resistant or -intolerant CML are limited. Dasatinib, a novel, highly potent, oral, multitargeted kinase inhibitor of BCR-ABL and SRC family kinases, induced cytogenetic responses in a phase 1 study in imatinib-resistant or -intolerant CML and was well tolerated. Initial results are presented from a phase 2 study of 186 patients with imatinib-resistant or -intolerant chronic-phase CML (CML-CP) designed to further establish the efficacy and safety of dasatinib (70 mg twice daily). At 8-months' follow-up, dasatinib induced notable responses, with 90\% and 52\% of patients achieving complete hematologic and major cytogenetic responses (MCyR), respectively. Responses were long lasting: only 2\% of patients achieving MCyR progressed or died. Importantly, comparable responses were achieved by patients carrying BCR-ABL mutations conferring imatinib resistance. Dasatinib also induced molecular responses, reducing BCR-ABL/ABL transcript ratios from 66\% at baseline to 2.6\% at 9 months. Nonhematologic adverse events were generally mild to moderate, and most cytopenias were effectively managed with dose modifications. Cross-intolerance with imatinib was not evident. To conclude, dasatinib induces notable responses in imatinib-resistant or -intolerant CML-CP, is well tolerated, and represents a promising therapeutic option for these patients. This trial was registered at www.clinicaltrials.gov as CA180013. This article was published in Blood and referenced in Journal of Carcinogenesis & Mutagenesis
