- The purpose of this study is to allow continued use of imatinib (the study drug) for treatment of Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) or chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and to collect long term safety data.
- Imatinib is designed to stop an enzyme (protein) that causes certain cancer cells to grow and is used for the treatment of GIST and certain types of CML. Participants in this study have been a part of an earlier study and benefited from treatment with imatinib.
Some of the eligibility criteria include:
- Participants are currently enrolled in a Novartis sponsored study receiving imatinib and are compliant (have followed all the rules of the other study).
- Description of Treatment
- Participants will start with the same dose of imatinib that they received in the previous study. Imatinib is a capsule that is taken by mouth. The study doctor may change a participant's dose depending on how they respond. Participants will remain on imatinib until the study ends or until the study doctor decides it is in their best interest to stop.
