22 The disease is characterized by an initial chronic phase lasting for 3–5 years and leading to a blastic phase. The blastic phase resembles an acute leukemia, and is generally fatal. During the initial chronic phase of CML, myeloid progenitor cells retain their ability to differentiate and increase in number. 4,5 Thus, expression of p210 BCR/ABL appears to have a subtle effect on the growth of multipotent hematopoietic progenitor cells, and does not block their ability to differentiate. 26 More recently, a novel chimeric BCR/ABL fusion gene was identified that encodes the majority of the BCR gene and is associated with the µ-bcr breakpoint.
