Thanks for posting this.  A lot of great papers.

A few observations (very quick scan):

1.  We're all gonna live.  So many treatments are arriving that if one doesn't work there is another.  Survival is just plain HUGE for all of us in CML community.  We get to complain about Number 2 below.

2.  Side Affects are gaining attention.  It's not just:  does the TKI work, but quality of life is important as an issue to be addressed.  Dose is mentioned in many of these.

3.  Clonal abnormalities may be of importance for Ph+ cells vs. Ph- cells as prognosticators.  Pay attention to your cytogenetic reports (BM's are important - PhilB keep it clean).  It's not just PCR.

And finally - very important to me:

Not a single paper, abstract, or poster on Curcumin.  NONE.

Speaks volumes.

(p.s. no money to be made with Curcumin).

Diagnosed 11 May 2011 (100% FiSH, 155% PCR)

with b2a2 BCR-ABL fusion transcript coding for the 210kDa BCR-ABL protein


Sprycel: 20 mg per day - taken at lights out with Quercetin and/or Magnesium Taurate

6-8 grams Curcumin C3 complex.


2015 PCR: < 0.01% (M.D. Anderson scale)

2016 PCR: < 0.01% (M.D. Anderson scale) 

March        2017 PCR:     0.01% (M.D. Anderson scale)

June          2017 PCR:     "undetected"

September 2017 PCR:     "undetected"
