In brief: Oral meds

Most patients can go into long- term remission within months of starting one of 3 oral meds currently on the market- gleevec, sprycel or tasigna (nilotinib).
For patients that fail to improve or the cancer relapses there are new drugs in trials and stem cell transplants are done.
