What other options have you heard of after this drug has little or no effectiveness?

Hi, I have a friend who used Gleevec too. I found some information for her and would like to share it with you. Since you didn't specify the type, maybe you can have a look at the site at:

http://www.cancer.gov/cancerinfo/types/leukemia

It discusses the treatments and side effects for Leukemia. Please let me know if that's helpful...Good luck!

Go to the National Cancer Institute there is discussion of two clinical trial drugs
Seek info out on this the imatinib derivative AMN107 and the dual-specificity SRC/ABL inhibitor dasatinib.AMN107 is said to be 10-30 times more potent than Gleevec. Good luck my prayers are with you stay in touch I have CML DXjust two weeks ago and Gleevec has put my WBC back to normal with no serious side effects.All people are different in repsonse to Treatments and keep a positive attitude and seek the comnfort of friends and family to give you moral support.
