The early stage of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is caused by the tyrosine kinase Bcr-Abl. Imatinib mesylate (also known as STI-571 and Gleevec), a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, has shown encouraging results in CML clinical trials and has become a paradigm for targeted cancer therapeutics. Recent reports of resistance to imatinib argue for further(More)
We previously reported that chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) primitive granulocyte-monocyte (GM) progenitors have a greatly reduced requirement for kit ligand (KL) to achieve optimal growth with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) + granulocyte-monocyte colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF). Conversely, others have demonstrated that unlike normal,(More)
