After nine months of being on Tasigna I have 0.0007 left of leukemia in my body which is the latest PCR result. I discussed this with my doctor and thinks this is a phenomenal response which I agree I have hardly any leukemia left. But by human nature I wanted to be PCRU or CMR instead of remaining where I am at as I want this stuff as much out of my body as possible. So I discussed this with my doctor and she said she thought I am hitting the point that I will stop decreasing but says who really knows. I could continue to decrease but only time will tell. But she did strongly state she did not think I would ever get to PCRU or CMR because I had never been on interferon. The only patients she had seen reach PCRU were those that were treated with interferon and then a TKI. I realized the few people I know who have reached CMR on Tasigna also had interferon so maybe she is right.
I'm posting this question, has anyone reached CMR or PCRU that has NOT been treated with interferon ever?
