My choice: The medicine selected by me will be ponatinib (Iclusig). The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States, expanded the options for patients with chronic myeloid leukemia and a form of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, which carries the Philadelphia chromosome (Ph.D. +). 30-40 percent of patients with CML are resistant to commonly used drugs.
The availability of Ponatinib will improve the outcomes of the majority of patients with CML and Ph + ALL who are resistant or intolerant of previous treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitor.
Ponatinib is the third-generation drug approved by the FDA for CML and Ph + ALL in the past four months, providing oncologists with a large number of options for treatment.
The idea is to get patients to reach a certain point where they can stop treatment and know that the disease will not come back and that most patients can be called cured

Your topic is approved Maria. Ponatinib meets the requirements of the assignment; it has been approved for use in the U.S. within the last two years, and its uses thoroughly explained. You just need to explain your purpose for choosing this specific medication in detail in all future assignments associated with your paper. Please be sure to begin searching for articles to support your work. It is a good idea to take a look at the research and articles available on your chosen medication. As these are to be new medications, you should be able to find quality clinical trials and studies available as references.
