In today’s episode, sponsored by Takeda, we had the pleasure of speaking with Elias Jabbour, MD, a professor in the Department of Leukemia and Division of Cancer Medicine at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, to discuss the use of TKIs in the treatment of patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and Philadelphia (Ph) chromosome–positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

In our exclusive interview, Jabbour discussed the optimal use of ponatinib in CML, recommendations for the treatment of patients with chronic phase–CML who progress after second-generations TKIs, and data from the 2021 ASCO Annual Meeting with the combination of blinatumomab (Blincyto) and ponatinib (Iclusig) in Ph-positive ALL.
