Use in Pediatric Ph+ CML

YOUR CHILD’S BLOOD DEMANDS TO BE HEARD.

As a parent, you have to speak up for your child. That means talking to the doctor about why TASIGNA® (nilotinib) capsules may be the right option to treat your child’s Philadelphia chromosome–positive chronic myeloid leukemia in chronic phase (Ph+ CML-CP).

 

Dosing for children

Your child’s doctor will determine the proper dose of TASIGNA based on your child’s body weight and height.

 

Results among children who were newly diagnosed

In a clinical study of 25 children whose first treatment for Ph+ CML-CP was TASIGNA

 

6 out of 10 children (15 of 25 patients) achieved a major molecular response (MMR) at 12 cycles (28 days per cycle or 336 days, so under 1 year).

Results among children who were switched to TASIGNA

In a clinical study of 44 children who couldn’t tolerate or no longer benefited from GLEEVEC® (imatinib mesylate) or dasatinib who were switched to TASIGNA

 

4 out of 10 children (18 of 44 patients) achieved a MMR at 12 cycles (28 days per cycle or 336 days, so under 1 year).
