The article discusses the improved drug adherence in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) by switching to second-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI). It compared the drug adherence rates from Imatinib (IM) to TKI nilotinib (NILO). It notes that adherence is a critical factor for improving survival rates in patients with CML treated with TKI.

    Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is characterized by the presence of a constitutively active Abl kinase, which is the product of a chimeric BCR-ABL gene, caused by the genetic translocation known as the Philadelphia chromosome. Imatinib, a selective inhibitor of the Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase, has...
