What is the purpose of the study

This is a non-interventional study. Ponatinib will be prescribed in the usual manner in accordance with the terms of the marketing authorization. All treatment decisions are made at the discretion of the patient’s healthcare provider (HCP) as per indication and are not mandated by the study design or protocol.

The study aims at better qualifying the benefit-risk balance of ponatinib in real life and in relation with the treatment history of CML patients therapeutic history.

The patient’s health status will be evaluated during a 24-month follow-up. Time points for patient evaluation will be at the discretion of the investigator. It is anticipated that these will occur approximately every 3 months the first year, and then every 6 months.

• Effectiveness will be assessed on the basis of hematologic, cytogenetic and molecular response rates and survival duration (overall and progression-free) according to the center practices.
• Tolerance will be assessed by the collection of adverse events.
