I posted this on the transplant boards, thought I would try here too.
New to the site here, but I am a 25 yr old male and was dx with CML with an ALL blast crisis on 1-11-11. I have done two rounds of the hyper CVAD treatment while waiting on A MUD SCT. I now have a donor and we are waiting a little while on the donor to become eligible because they tested DT+. I don't know what this meant and the SCT team said it was a positive indicator towards a more successful transplant. My ONC at home couldn't tell me what it was. I was jut wondering if anyone knew what this meant, and why the team would want to wait a little while on this donor as opposed to another more readily availble one. I also have heard that what I have is a "rarer" form of CML, so if anyone has gone through it or has some experience with it I would love the feedback.
