Forecast on Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia Treatment Market for the Period 2017 - 2026


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/17/2018 -- Majorly, chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) occurs in adults, however, it sometimes occurs in children as well. However, targeted drugs called Tyrosine-Kinase Inhibitors (TKIs) have been effective in providing long-term survival rates. Meanwhile, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved dasatinib (Sprycel) for the treatment of chronic myelogenous leukemia in children. As the chronic myeloid leukemia is more aggressive in younger patients, the approval of drugs can help in effective treatment.

Chronic myelogenous leukemia is a type of blood cancer that cannot be cured with normal treatments. Hence, a new class of drugs known as Tyrosine-Kinase Inhibitors (TKIs) has been developed that is resulting in the more effective treatment of CML. These class of drugs is also known as BCR-ABL inhibitors. Imatinib, which is known as first generation TKI, is quickly becoming a standard treatment for chronic myelogenous leukemia. Meanwhile, Nilotinib is a second generation TKI which is being used by patients who are no longer able to respond to imatinib. TKIs are expensive, hence, generic imatinibs have also been introduced in various countries. The biggest restricting factor in the use of TKIs is the high cost of these drugs. TKIs, including imatinib drug, is effective at killing leukemic cells, but still is not able to kill the CML cells from which the disease is born. Hence, new research is also being carried out for more advanced and effective treatment.
