A Randomized Multi-Center Open Label Study of BMS-354825 vs Imatinib Mesylate (Gleevec®) 800 mg/d in Subjects With Chronic Phase Philadelphia Chromosome-Positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia Who Have Disease That is Resistant to Iamtinib at a Dose of 400-600 mg/d

RATIONALE: BMS-354825 and imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying BMS-354825 to see how well it works compared to imatinib mesylate in treating patients with chronic phase chronic myelogenous leukemia that did not respond to previous imatinib mesylate.
