DYNAMICS OF CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA

Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) represents the first human cancer in which molecularly targeted therapy leads to a dramatic clinical response. Imatinib mesylate (Gleevec, STI571) is a potent inhibitor of the BCR-ABL fusion oncogene that drives the leukemia, and induces remission in all stages of the disease. Although CML represents one of the most well studied cancers, several critical questions remain.

In this talk, I will discuss theoretical approaches to answer these questions.
