WorldHealthDay 2020April 2021 - Today is World Health Day! We will continue to do our best to build a fairer, healthier world for patients with CML. During these extraordinary times and current challenges for global health related to COVID-19, our main focus is to support physicians treating patients with CML around the world and to gain and share knowledge about COVID-19 and CML.

The iCMLf is collecting details of CML patients diagnosed with COVID-19. To date we have collected a total number of 642 cases from 48 countries. The iCMLf CML and COVID-19 data was first presented at ASH 2020 and a full publication is expected soon.

We are also putting together a CML vaccination study across sites in 15 countries to assess patients' attitude to being vaccinated, the actual uptake of vaccine by patients, potential side effects/toxicities associated with the vaccines and evidence of immunity by serology. More information will be provided soon.

Wesseling Sweet 2March 2021 - The iCMLf continues to support the global CML community during the pandemic by providing the latest information on COVID-19 and CML. With the increasing availability of COVID-19 vaccines, up to date and relevant information is imperative for physicians treating blood cancers and their patients. The next highlight in our series of iCMLf Conversations is coming up with an expert talk on COVID-19 vaccines and CML to be held Wednesday, April 7th at 13.30 CET.

Don’t miss this opportunity to stay up to date with the latest developments on COVID-19 vaccines for people with CML.

rdd logoFebruary 2021 - Today we join many other organizations supporting rare diseases and patients all over the world to raise awareness for rare diseases and their impact on patients lives.

There are over 300 million people living with a rare disease worldwide. Access to appropriate monitoring and treatment is still especially challenging in low- and middle-income countries.

CML is a rare condition and we will continue to improve access to treatment and care for patients affected by CML all over the world through our programs for physicians from the emerging regions and through our online education.
