This may be my last post, I don't know, but I wanted to get this in before we all scatter to the four winds.
Did anyone see the NY Times article on Monday, Jan. 29th, Scientists Discover a Bone-Deep Risk for Heart Disease, by Gina Kolata? About a hematopoetic stem cell mutation called CHIP strongly associated with cardiovascular disease? It makes me wonder: maybe the cardiovascular disease side effects and/or adverse events that are starting to show up with some longterm TKI use are really not the fault of the TKIs after all, but rather of the Big Mama hematopoetic stem cell (which our TKIs don't reach) having this CHIP mutation, right along with the one that says, "leukemia, go forth and multiply."
It's just a thought. Seems there would be some logic behind it.
