Got a call from my nurse from the doctors office with the results of bmb,bma and she told me that I was in remission. I was happy but wanted to see the results myself to look at it before I got too happy. received the letter today and it stated" Fluorescence in FISH studies were performed using the BCR/ABL 1 Dual Color,dual fusion probe set. (Abbot) This probe set is used to detect the 9:22 translocation, A Fish probe for 9q34(ASS1).centromeric to ABL1, is included in the probe cocktail to evaluate deletion of the 9q34 region.
In the present study a total of 500 interphase nuclei were manuall scored for all probes. Additional cells wre scored in order to increase test sensitivity in the detection of minimal residual disease. There was no molecular cytogeetic evidence of a 9:22 translocation or a 9q34 deletion.
Interphase FISH was performed to screen for the loci indicated above and does not detect other chromosomal abnormalities.
Additional studies: Cytogenetics, CG13-013207,Molecular,MOL13-009304,BCR/AB; CSI Laboratories
Results; nuc ish(ASS1,ABL1,BCR)x2(500)

the note on my report says in cytogenic remission, has low level residual disease. I would appreciate feedback from anyone. Thanks
