Introduction
Imatinib mesylate is the drug of choice for patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Imatinib pharmacokinetics is affected by a number of transport proteins and enzymes.

Material and methods
In the present study we evaluated the association of eight polymorphisms in the seven genes CYP3A5*3 (rs776746), CYP3A4*1 (rs2740574), CYP2C9*3 (rs1057910), SLC22A1 (rs683369), ABCB1 (rs1045642, rs1128503), ABCG2 (rs2231142) and ABCC2 (rs717620) with imatinib plasma level and achieving an optimal clinical response in 112 CML patients (53 men and 59 women).

Results
No association was found between the examined polymorphisms in rs776746, rs2740574, rs1057910, rs683369, rs1045642, rs1128503, rs2231142, rs717620 and the achieved imatinib plasma level. The influence of rs776746 (CYP3A5*3) on the achievement of a complete cytogenetic response (CCyR) at 6 months was borderline non-significant (p = 0.06). Furthermore, no association was demonstrated between rs776746 polymorphisms and the achievement of a major molecular response (MMR) at 12 or 18 months. Polymorphisms rs776746, rs2740574, rs1057910, rs683369, rs1045642, rs1128503, rs2231142, rs717620 showed no impact on the optimal therapeutic response.

Conclusions
Despite the results of some other studies, no other polymorphism we analyzed was associated with imatinib plasma level or clinical response. The treatment outcomes cannot be predicted using the candidate gene approach and treatment decisions cannot be made according to the polymorphisms investigated in this study.
