Bristol-Myers Squibb said the FDA has approved new labeling for Sprycel to include a lower recommended starting dose of 100 mg once daily and safety and efficacy data in a greater number of patients with chronic-phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) resistant or intolerant to prior therapy including Gleevec. The product labeling now also includes data from the first randomized trial of Sprycel and Gleevec.
