Question: is there a reason why 25% of CML cases do not respond to imatinib?Approach: Compared the genomes of three CMLcases with primary resistance to Imatinib with twoCML cases sensitive to Imatinib therapyResults:3/3 resistance caseshad the same 2.9kbdeletion in the BIMgene not seenin sensitive cases (0/2)Ng KP, Nat Med. 18(4):521-8(2012)
  22. 22. BIM:• BIM is a gene that activates cell death (pro‐apoptotic). • Activated BCR‐ABL1, suppresses BIM function thus  allowing leukemia cells to survive. When CML cells are  treated with Imatinib, BIM expression goes up  cell  death Death of Bcr-ABL: CML Intact BIM Leukemia cells Imatinib
