I've posted a few times about my husband's CML - this board and its members are so helpful and supportive, I appreciate it so much.
A little background - he was diagnosed Aug '11, suboptimal response to Gleevec in Jan '12 and he had a bad reaction to Sprycel. He became a patient of Dr. Cortes and he put him back on Gleevec wanting to give it a little longer. He responded to Gleevec, barely missing CCR by 1 on his appt this past August. We just got the results of his most recent MDA visit, not good. His BCR/ABL jumped from .54 to 32.23 and was 16/20 Ph+. They are doing mutation testing and we learn results next week. Cortes will switch him to Ponatinib if mutation test comes back positive and Bosutinib if not. We know to expect some side effects but are very optimistic for good results based on the positive studies. Timing is everything with the recent approvals.
I guess I don't really have a question...just some support, thanks!!
