How many of you have trisomy 8 present even if CML is "undetected"?
The recent paper suggests that trisomy 8 in and of itself is not associated with poor outcomes (advancing disease), but that it should disappear over time with continued TKI treatment.
That has not happened in my case. I still have trisomy 8 even though my CML is "undetected". It is suggested that as long as trisomy 8 is present, I will not be able to have a successful cessation attempt.
Anyone else in this situation?
