A Multicenter Phase I/II Study of the Prophylactic Inhibition of BCR-ABL Tyrosine Kinase by Tasigna ® (Nilotinib) After Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation for Philadelphia Chromosome-Positive Leukemias.

This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects and best way to give nilotinib when given together with imatinib mesylate after donor stem cell transplant in treating patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia or chronic myelogenous leukemia. Nilotinib and imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check to see if other locations are recruiting.
