5, and 4–5 years, respectively (Table 3). Good-risk patients now account for 45% to 50% of CML cohorts, reflecting earlier diagnosis and screening tests. Improved sur­vival in modern CML studies should be analyzed in the context of the change of risk group distribution, and within risk groups. IFN-α therapy has not been associated with a change in the significance of prognostic factors derived from conventional chemotherapy studies (Table 2) (20). In multivariate analyses, the percent of blasts and thrombocytoses have correlated with response to IFN-α therapy; splenomegaly, marrow basophilia, anemia, and percent of blasts have been associated with survival (20–24).

This effect was, however, confined to only a fraction of the patients. Interferon alpha (IFN-α) was initially given to CML patients in the early 1980s and gradually became the foundation for nontransplant treatment of the disease. This is based on its ability to obtain survival prolongation in most of the patients and a complete sustained remission in a fraction of the patients. Our current therapeutic issues include the formation of therapeutic algorithms that will enable adequate incorporation of the two aforementioned therapeutic modalities and improvement of the existing therapies by developing combina­tion therapies (IFN-α combined with Ara-C) or new allo-transplantation strate­gies, such as matched unrelated donor (MUD) transplantation.
