CML Clinical Trials Registry now lists 35 ongoing studies

Word Art 1

Patients wishing to participate in a clinical study often look for a central source of information where they can find easy-to-understand facts on ongoing trials. 

Official trial registries like or other trial registries are available but tend to be complex and difficult to use for patients.

To fill the need for a single source of information on CML studies in plain language, CML Advocates Network set up an unofficial online CML Trials Registryin 2013.

The database contains a brief description of ongoing CML trials initiated by academia (universities) or pharmaceutical companies.

Currently, 24 clinical studies are listed that are actively recruiting patients. Another 11 studies are still ongoing but no longer including new patients.


Lately, the following studies have been added to or updated in our CML Clinical Trials Registry

Patients should consult their doctor for personal advice and/or their scientific contact/study staff for the most up-to-date study information.
