Abstract

We retrospectively evaluated 90 patients with chronic myeloid leukemia receiving either upfront original imatinib (Ol) or generic imatinib (Gl) for the effect of the early molecular response on the long-term outcome. We demonstrated that achieving an optimal response at 3 and 6 months in patients receiving either first-line Gl or Ol was clearly associated with greater response and event-free survival rates.
