Objectives: Newer tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) (bosutinib, ponatinib) and allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) can be utilized as a salvage therapy in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) who failed two lines (imatinib -> nilotinib or imatinib -> dasatinib) of TKI therapy. However, these TKIs are not available in many countries and not all patients can undergo allo-HSCT.
