We are delighted to present the latest module in the iCMLf Knowledge Centre: "Management of Advanced Phase CML."

Within the module are four presentations, delivered by CML experts from Italy, Germany, the UK and Colombia, which explore the intricacies of CML in advanced stages. This module addresses the pressing urgency to identify patients at the highest risk of progressing to blast phase CML and explores the development of more effective therapies for patients already in blast phase or progressing while on existing treatments.

As always, we have considered this topic from a global perspective, by providing insights into CML practices within both high and lower income countries, to ensure best practice treatment can be achieved for people with CML around the world.mhairi copland 1536x1536

We invite you to join us and utilise this latest module within the Knowledge Centre as a means to expand your knowledge for better patient outcomes and improved management strategies for advanced phase CML.

To gain insights into the module, we highly recommend starting with the module’s Chair, Professor Mhairi Copland’s overview - who identified the key objective of the module is “to address this area of significant unmet clinical need”.
