Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Rate of Major Molecular Responder (MMR) by BCR-ABL RQ-PCR analysis from peripheral blood by 12 months [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Newly diagnosed Ph+ CML chronic phase (CP) patient will be counted as Major Molecular Responder (MMR) by 12 months if MMR criteria is achieved at least once any time between first study drug intake and cycle 12 visit.

  • Rate of Major Cytogenetic Responder (MCyR) measured by the percentage of Ph+ metaphases in bone marrow by 12 months [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A newly diagnosed Ph+ CML-CP patients will be counted as Major Cytogenetic Responder (MCyR) by 12 months if the MCyR criteria is achieved at least once any time between first study drug intake and cycle 12 visit. Resistant/intolerant Ph+ CML CP patients will be counted as Major Cytogenetic Responder (MCyR) by 12 months if the MCyR criteria is achieved at least once any time between first study drug intake and cycle 12 visit.

  • Rate of Confirmed Hematological Responder (CHR) measured by complete blood count by 3 months [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Resistant/intolerant Ph+ CML advanced phase (AP) patients will be counted as Confirmed Hematological Responder (CHR) by 3 months if the CHR criteria is achieved at least once anytime between first study drug intake and cycle 3 visit.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to response of primary endpoints [ Time Frame: 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to response is defined as the time from the date of first study drug intake to the date of the first specified response.

  • Duration of response [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration of a response is defined as the time between the date of the first specified response to either the date for confirmed loss of the response or progression to advance phase (AP)/BC (from CP) or to BC (from AP) or CML-related death, whichever is earlier.

  • Time to Disease Progression [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to disease progression is defined as the time from the date of first study drug intake to the date of the event defined as the first progression to AP/BC (from CP) or to BC (from AP) or the date of CML-related death, whichever is earlier.

  • Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: up to 24 months or date of last contact in follow-up ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall survival is defined as the time from the data of first study drug intake to the date of death due to any cause. If a patient is not known to have died, survival will be censored at the date of their last assessment for patients on study and date of last contact for patients in follow-up.

  • Rate of major cytogenetic response (MCyR) and confirmed cytogenetic response (CCR) in all patients for timepoints not already analyzed in primary endpoints [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The major or confirmed cytogenetic response rate (0-35% Ph+ metaphases) by all timepoints with data available for newly diagnosed Ph+ CML CP and in Ph+ CML CP and AP patients resistant/intolerant to either imatinib or dasatnib not already analyzed as part of the primary endpoint analysis.

  • BCR-ABL transcript levels determined with standard protocols in peripheral blood and bone marrow for all time points with available data [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Rate of MMR and CHR in all patients for timepoints not already analyzed in primary endpoints [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The response rate by all timepoints with data available for newly diagnosed Ph+ CML CP and in Ph+ CML CP and AP patients resistant/intolerant to either imatinib or dasatnib not already analyzed as part of the primary endpoint analysis.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Emerging signs of resistance [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Muational asessment of BCR-ABL

  • Acceptability of study drug formulation [ Time Frame: day1, day 28, early discontinuation or month 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Questionnaire to capture patient assessment of palatability (very good to very bad) and acceptability of taking the medication (very easy to very hard to administration).
