I just got my PCR back today and did surprisingly well. I had been on a half dose of Tasigna since last June, and my PCRs were slowly getting worse: 3.34, 2.99, and 2.88. After three months on a full dose (300mg twice a day), I dropped to 4.41. Note that I'm talking log reduction--I don't get the international number from my onc. Just out of curiosity, what kind of log reduction is considered CMR?

Have a look at page 4 of http://cmlsociety.or...Session-BMS.pdf

CMR is a 4.0;4.5 or 5.0 log reduction.

Some labs stop reporting PCR numbers after 4 log, and others after 4.5 log; but some labs report until there is no number at all.  So you would be reported as PCRU by some labs.

Any way you slice it, you are doing extremely well.
