We agree that the characteristics of patients prescribed tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) are likely to have evolved since the introduction of these transformative therapies. In our research, we found that prior to the regulatory approval of TKI, the incidence of adverse cardiovascular events among patients with CML was lower than among age-matched and …
