Is it IMATINIB MESYLATE? Imatinib is a drug used to treat certain types of cancer.Imatinib works by blocking an abnormal enzyme characteristic of the disease.Imatinib is the first approved drug to directly turn off the signal of a protein known to cause a cancer. Imatinib is rapidly absorbed when given by mouth, and is highly bioavailable: 98% of an oral dose reaches the bloodstream. Metabolism of imatinib occurs in the liver .Although the long-term side effects of imatinib have not yet been ascertained, research suggests that it is generally very well tolerated. Broadly, side effects such as edema, nausea, rash and musculoskeletal pain are common but mild.Rarely it has been assosciated with damage to heart muscles.

Hi Ashish

You really need to check yourself what medicine will work for CLL. I believe that there is no such thing as IMITINEF MERCILET.
There is a medcine in the market called IMATINIB ( GLIVEC) made by Novartis they also make a next ggeneration of medicine called NILOTINIB (TASIGNA) which is used to continue if the patient is intolerant to IMATINIB.

There is also another one called DASATINIB (SPRYCEL) made by Bristol Myer Squibb which is very effective and sits between the two above

Please check them out on the net or contact Hammersmith Hospital in London on 0044 8383 4340 to contact Proffessor Apperley or Dr David Marin. This hospital is world renoun for all types of Leukimea treatments.

I hope this helps in search for your fathers treatment

Need help than you can mail me and my contact number in UK is 0044 7949411510
