My first post, so hopefully someone is out there!
Having had a positive continuing downward trend on PCR ABL counts - since getting onto Dasatanib over just over a year my numbers had come down from 0.081% to 0.005% my latest results which cover a period of under 3 months since the 0.005% last result have gone up by some 2800% to 0.14%. Obviously this feels alarming. My consultant team have suggested a further test in 2 months time...
Could this type of massive swing be a contaminated result or someone in a lab misplacing a decimal point ?
What does it mean if genuine and does anyone have experience in this regard - I assume it would show resistance/mutation to Dasatanib?
If the second point is more likely should I be pushing for a quicker next blood test given the order of magnitude in increase?
