Pediatr Hematol OncolDelighted to share our new paper - Challenges in Management of Pediatric Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (pCML) in the Low-Middle Income Countries (LMICs): Insights from an International CML Foundation (iCMLf) Multi-National Survey
(Roy Moulik N et al. Pediatr Hematol Oncol, January 2024 - open access publication)

An international survey by the iCMLf reveals key challenges in LMICs:

  1️⃣  Rarity of pCML and limited expertise pose obstacles.

 2️⃣  Lack of guidelines tailored to resource constraints hinders uniform patient care.

 3️⃣  Diagnostic infrastructure limitations and TKI accessibility issues identified.

 4️⃣  Treatment-free remission attempts face barriers due to long-term monitoring challenges.

The survey sheds light on patient, physician, and infrastructure challenges, urging the need for context-specific guidelines, advocacy for continuous TKI access, and improvements in diagnostic resources.
