The relative merits of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) and imatinib for chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) in accelerated phase (AP) have not previously been evaluated. This cohort study was designed to compare the outcomes of imatinib (n=87) versus allo-HSCT (n=45) for AP CML. A multivariate analysis of the total population revealed that CML duration > 12 months, hemoglobin < 100 g/L and peripheral blood blasts > 5% were independent adverse prognostic factors for both overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS). Both treatments resulted in similar survival in low-risk (no factor) patients, with six-year event-free survival (EFS), OS and PFS rates of more than 80.0%. Intermediate-risk (any factor) patients showed no difference in EFS and OS, but six-year PFS rates were 55.7% vs. 92.9% (P=0.047) with imatinib versus allo-HSCT. Among high-risk (at least two factors) patients, imatinib was by far inferior to allo-HSCT, with five-year EFS, OS and PFS rates of 9.3% vs. 66.7% (P=0.034), 17.7% vs. 100% (P=0.008) and 18.8% vs. 100% (P=0.006), respectively. We conclude that allo-HSCT, compared to imatinib, confers significant survival advantages for high- and intermediate-risk patients with AP CML; however, the outcomes of the two therapies are equally good in low-risk patients. All trials were registered with as CHiCHTR-TNC-10000955.
