Publication type: English Abstract; Practice Guideline

Nilotinib (Tasigna) is a second-generation BCR-ABL kinase inhibitor, recently introduced and used for the treatment of chronic or accelerated phase CML patients, intolerant or resistant to imatinib. This treatment represents and important step forward for the disease control of such patients but can lead to side effects, sometimes serious, which can limit its optimal use. We propose here some guidelines that might be of help in daily practice, in order to manage properly these side effects.
