This study will assess the pharmacokinetics of nilotinib in pediatric patients with resistant/intolerance Ph+ CML chronic phase or accelerated phase (CP or AP) and refractory or relapsed Ph+ ALL compared to the adult populations. It will also evaluate safety and activity of nilotinib as secondary objectives.

This study is designed to determine the maximal tolerated dose of Ruxolitinib in combination with nilotinib in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML).
Describe the purpose of the study: This study aims to evaluate the improvement of Dasatinib-related adverse events and to evaluate the treatment effect and safety by measuring the genetic ...
ENESTKorea is a phase 4, multi-institutional, single-arm, open-label study investigating the efficacy and safety of nilotinib at the currently approved dose (300 mg twice daily) and its ex...
Maintain and monitor long-term hematological and cytogenetic responses previously obtained by patients participating in the [CAMN107A2109] study
This study will evaluate the safety of nilotinib in adult patients with imatinib-resistant or -intolerant CML-blast crisis, CML-accelerated phase or CML-chronic phase when treated with nil...
Efficacy and safety of nilotinib 300 mg twice daily in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia in chronic phase who are intolerant to prior tyrosine kinase inhibitors: Results from the Phase IIIb ENESTswift study.
Some patients receiving a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) for the first-line treatment of chronic phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CML-CP) experience intolerable adverse events. Management strategies i...
The p53 gene is also known as tumor suppressor p53. The main functions of the p53 gene are an anticancer effect and cellular genomic stability via various pathways including activation of DNA repair, ...
Although a wealth of efficacy and safety data is available for many tyrosine kinase inhibitors used in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), there is a dearth of information on their impact on patients' hea...
Although Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) that target Bcr-Abl play a key role in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) therapy, they do not eradicate CML-initiating cells, which lead to the emergence of dru...
Objective: To compare the clinical efficacy and safety of nilotinib and imatinib as frontline therapy in newly diagnosed patients with chronic myeloid leukemia in chronic phase(CML-CP). Methods: Until...
The phase of chronic myeloid leukemia following the chronic phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, CHRONIC-PHASE), where there are increased systemic symptoms, worsening cytopenias, and refractory LEUKOCYTOSIS.
Clonal hematopoetic disorder caused by an acquired genetic defect in PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS. It starts in MYELOID CELLS of the bone marrow, invades the blood and then other organs. The condition progresses from a stable, more indolent, chronic phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, CHRONIC PHASE) lasting up to 7 years, to an advanced phase composed of an accelerated phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, ACCELERATED PHASE) and BLAST CRISIS.
A myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative disorder characterized by myelodysplasia associated with bone marrow and peripheral blood patterns similar to CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA, but cytogenetically lacking a PHILADELPHIA CHROMOSOME or bcr/abl fusion gene (GENES, ABL).
An alkylating agent having a selective immunosuppressive effect on BONE MARROW. It has been used in the palliative treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (MYELOID LEUKEMIA, CHRONIC), but although symptomatic relief is provided, no permanent remission is brought about. According to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP 85-002, 1985), busulfan is listed as a known carcinogen.
The initial phase of chronic myeloid leukemia consisting of an relatively indolent period lasting from 4 to 7 years. Patients range from asymptomatic to those exhibiting ANEMIA; SPLENOMEGALY; and increased cell turnover. There are 5% or fewer blast cells in the blood and bone marrow in this phase.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
Leukemia is a type of cancer of the blood or bone marrow characterized by an abnormal increase of immature white blood cells called "blasts". Leukemia is a broad term covering a spectrum of diseases. In turn, it is part of the even broader grou...
