Abstract

Imatinib has revolutionized the treatment of chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML). In 2016, generic imatinib will be introduced into the US market. We analyse the potential impact of this new product on patient care and optimal CML therapy, and comment on the effect that distorted cancer drug pricing in the USA will have on treatment for patients with limited therapeutic options.
