First - thanks to everyone who contributes on this board. I was diagnosed 3 months ago and am on the board several times/week and can usually find answers to my questions by searching, without having to start a new thread. Trey's CML Blog in particular has been a great source of info. This is my first post - I can't wait for my Dr to get back from vacation next week to help explain my PCR.
Just called and got the 3 month PCR test result (don't believe I had one done at initial diagnosis so no original baseline to compare to for reduction calculation). The BCR-ABL ratio was 0.039.
Does this seem to be a "good response" at 3 months? Is there an achievement level that is expected as early as the 3 month mark? Without an initial PCR for a baseline, is there a "typical" baseline level I should use to caluculate what a 3 log reduction value would be? Been on 600 mg/day Tasigna since diagnosis, otherwise healthy 43 year old male.
