JMGrad - You wrote in your note that you are part of a trial. Important in the trial are cytogenetics and what is going on to the cells that are only found in the bone marrow. Sprycel is known to affect Osteocytes for example (bone forming cells). Peripheral blood is not sufficient for such a detailed look.
In that case - bone marrow work every 3 months or so is probably necessary for them to get the data they need to make them famous.
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"
