The Mother-of-All-Stem-Cells is back.
My PCR results have been UNDETECTED since 12/2012. A BMB in Feb. confirmed I was negative. As a result, my dose of Gleevec was cut by half in March, as my labs are below normal and I need a knee replacement - now scheduled for June.
Almost as an afterthought, I got a PCR test 2 weeks ago. POSITIVE. Again.
Quantitative real-time PCR analysis for the BCR/ABL fusion transcript is
POSITIVE at a relative level of 0.00462% K562 expression [BCR/ABL major (CML) breakpoint region].
