Bristol Myers-Squibb launch Best to Test

Bristol Myers-Squibb is sponsoring a new initiative to improve the level of chronic myeloid leukaemia monitoring
Bristol Myers-Squibb is sponsoring a new initiative to improve the level of chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) monitoring on the back of results of a recent survey that indicate that doctors are not doing enough in this area.

While UK GPs came out top of the poll of 550 physicians and specialists across Europe, the results show that 47 per cent of the respondents are not carrying out regular monitoring for CML patients.

The Best to Test initiative will push forward a drive to change and improve the level and quality of CML monitoring and testing after the data from the survey suggested that better education and support is needed.

"Resistance and intolerance to treatments are real concerns for patients and their physicians and monitoring in the correct way is key to achieving the longest possible survival rates," said Tony Gavin, chief executive of Leukaemia CARE UK.
