Brief description The success of therapy for patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia depends on close monitoring during therapy for early recognition of pending relapse, and the selection of appropriate treatment if drug resistance occurs. This project aims to identify patients at the start of therapy who are at risk of treatment failure by investigating their genetic profile. An increased frequency of gene mutations may indicate that patients require more aggressive therapy to achieve an optimal response.
