Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 205 0
To determine the safety and tolerability of Glivec (STI571) at 600 mg daily in combination with induction chemotherapy in adult patients with CML in blast crisis or Ph+ ALL during the first 2 months of treatment
Timepoint [1] 205 0
During the first 2 months of treatment
Secondary outcome [1] 465 0
1. To investigate the efficacy of Glivec combined with induction chemotherapy in Ph+ acute leukaemias. This will be evaluated in terms of response rate (haematological, cytogenetic and molecular)
Timepoint [1] 465 0
At 4 weeks, leukaemia-free survival and overall survival at 3 years.
Secondary outcome [2] 466 0
2. To examine the inhibition of Bcr-Abl kinase activity in leukaemic blasts induced in-vivo by Glivec. This will be determined using Western blot analysis.
Timepoint [2] 466 0

Patients of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test prior to the initiation of therapy. Male and female patients agree to employ an effective barrier method of birth control throughout the study and for up to 3 months following the discontinuation of Glivec. 3. Written informed consent.
