We report our experience in 41 patients with chronic phase (CF)-chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) who had discontinued imatinib switched to dasatinib, retrospectively. The CF-CML patients received dasatinib at starting dose of 100 once daily. Dose adjustment were observed in 11 patients, respectively. In case of other circumstances, treatment has been continued with a lower dose if needed. The median dose of dasatinib was 100 mg daily (range: 50 to 140 mg). We conclude that even low-dose dasatinib therapy is an effective and safe in second line treatment of CML patients patients.
