ABSTRACT
The authors reflect on the clinical challenge in the management of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) due to patients' nonadherence to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI). They cite the retrospective study by Maeda et al. that suggests that switching medications from imatinib to nilotinib may resolve the issue of patient nonadherence. The authors suggest an assessment during TKI switching to identify the switchers need for effective intervention.
