    • Read the press releases. "ARIAD Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARIA) is discontinuing the Phase 3 EPIC (Evaluation of Ponatinib versus Imatinib in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia) trial of Iclusig┬« (ponatinib) in patients with newly diagnosed chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). ARIAD and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration mutually agreed that the trial should be terminated because arterial thrombotic events were observed in patients treated with Iclusig. This decision was made in the interest of patient safety based on a recent assessment of data in the clinical trial."

      Bottom Line Drug is safe and I am sad that so many people with stage four die everyday.
      Thank God for companies like ARIA trying to help.
