CML Atlas East Europe

2 Dec 2020 - 16:12

CML Atlas East Europe is the final product of East Europe and West Asia regional project run by CML Advocates Network from 1st December 2019 to 31st March 2020.

The activity started with a regional survey reaching our Eastern European patient members addressing a sample of respondents of CML advocates and CML doctors based in 19 countries from the Central and Eastern EU region.

An online questionnaire was created by using cloud-based online survey development software to collect data on general information about CML, availability of TKIs, availability of PCR, running clinical trials and treatment-free remission data.

Results of this collection have been published on a website where we can navigate through the menu section and be informed about key topics and issues in the different countries.
