Ponatinib has proven to be effective in adults with Philadelphia chromosome-positive leukaemias, but data in paediatrics are scarce. Among paediatric patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia (n = 9) or acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (n = 12) treated with varying doses of ponatinib in 13 centres, 71% showed a decrease in disease burden after a median of three months. Ponatinib was well tolerated, with grade 3 toxicities occurring in 29% of patients. Toxicities were similar to those reported in adults, with the exception of arterial thrombotic events, which were not observed. Ponatinib has a favourable safety profile in this paediatric cohort, but dose-finding studies are needed.
