Purpose of Review: In this review, we analyzed the available data from clinical trials with new tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) under development and how to consider chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients who had either resistance or intolerance to current TKIs for treatment with such agents. Recent Findings: Nearly 50% of CML patients treated with TKIs frontline have required a change of therapy by 10 years. Second-line therapy is effective (by achievement of complete cytogenetic response) in only approximately 50% of patients, and available third-generation TKI has been marred by concerns of arterio-occlusive events. These facts highlight the need for additional treatment options. Summary: New TKIs have shown promising efficacy and tolerance in CML patients with resistance or intolerance to multiple available TKIs. Additional studies will determine their role in the management of CML.
