This protocol will allow expanded access of ponatinib to patients ≥18 years with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) any phase or Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph+ALL) who have failed all available treatment options.
This protocol will allow expanded access of ponatinib to patients ≥18 years with CML or Ph+ALL who have failed all available treatment options. Patients with chronic (CP) or accelerated phase (AP) CML must be previously treated with and resistant or intolerant to imatinib, dasatinib and nilotinib or develop the T315I mutation after any tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) therapy. Patients with blast phase (BP) CML and Ph+ ALL must be previously treated with and resistant or intolerant to imatinib and dasatinib or develop the T315I mutation after any TKI therapy. No formal analysis will be performed on any data obtained. Safety information will be collected and adverse events will be tabulated for reporting purposes only.
Patients will receive ponatinib 45 mg orally as a single dose once daily with or without food. Each patient will receive daily ponatinib until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or withdrawal of consent
