Is any restriction while keep taking dasatinib and trying for child for male.

Hi! I think we've chatted before on Facebook.

For the males it is indeed much simpler than for females, however there is not massively clear data or consensus on the issue for males. 

I spoke to Prof Jane Apperley a while back about this. Jane is probably the foremost authority on this subject, and her opinion is that it is fine to father a child on dasatinib and that whilst there are risks with every pregnancy, the father taking dasatinib does not seem to increase these risks.

I was at a conference where this topic was brought up (Jane presented). Here are the slides:

If you want to watch to her presentation, there is a recording of it here:
