I was diagnosed in July 2012 with CML CP.
At 12 months on imatinub my results were as follows:
1 out of 20 metaphases of BMB was Philadelphia Chromosome POSITIVE.
PCR: 1.7 (IS)
My haematologist then switched me over to Dasatinub. At 3 months on Dasatinub, my results were as follows:
1 out of 20 metaphases was still Philadelphia Chromosome POSITIVE. (No change).
PCR: Results were not available yet.
My question to you Trey is:
Is there any possible way that one can have a PCR <1 (CCyR) and at the same time have a BMB that is still Philadelphia Chromosome POSITIVE. (As in my case with only 1 metaphase still Philadelphia Chromosome Positive)?
My haematologist said that although I did not attain CCyR on Imatinub at 12 months, I still had a very good TKI response. I know it is still early days on Dasatinub and I am very close, but I am still worried about my response.
