This is a very difficult situation. I substantially agree with Tim who suggested to try also the combination of ponatinib and asciminib. I wonder also if a short course of chemo AML like (FLAG or FLA-IDA) could help to restore at least in part the sensitivity to ponatinib or asciminib after recovery from aplasia. This type of chemo could also decrease the titer of DSA antibodies, facilitating a subsequent transplant, that in any case remains the final solution. Substantially I would treat this case as a Ph-positive AML (or CML BC) using TKIs before and after the transplant.
