Chronic Myeloid Leukemia Clinical Trials

Chronic Myeloid Leukemia or CML, is a type of cancer of the white blood cells. Chronic Myeloid Leukemia affects the myeloid cells present in the bone marrow and in the blood. The leukemic cells circulating in the blood can spread to other organs like spleen and liver, and cause enlargement.

A CML patient may not experience any severe symptoms in the initial stages. However, later a patient may develop symptoms like pain and swelling in spleen, pain on joints/hip, fever at low grade, anemia, weak immune system etc.

There are no external symptoms of CML. A complete blood count can provide some information about the disease. Bone marrow biopsy is performed to confirm the diagnosis.

At the chronic stage of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia, the most important treatment is to control the situation for as many days as possible. Stem cell transplant has also shown positive results for many people.

Many developments are yet to be done in the field of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. Clinical trials for Chronic Myeloid Leukemia are an important step in the development of new treatments and 28 clinical trials are currently active in the United State for Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. These clinical trials are being conducted in 49 cities and are being performed by 50 different clinical trial investigators (doctors who conduct and supervise the clinical study). 55 interventions are being tested in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia clinical trials.
