I am hoping some one can point me in the right direction. Quick back story
Final diagnosis last week and started Imatinib
- I originally had many blood tests along with a BCR-ABL test which yielded blood/ABL ratio 39.8% by multiplex RT -PCR
- other numbers from test - Hb 148 WCC 23.4, Plts 428, neuts 17.48
I also had a bone marrow test the day before starting meds to create a baseline. My questions are
- What is a good ratio re BCR-ABL?
- I am assuming the bone marrow test will be used for the same measurement and then I will have a new test post 3 months to look at a decrease ?
I have looked through other threads but find it quite confusing!
Any help appreciated
