My mum has had CML for nearly 4 years now and when the doctors first diagnosed her they put her on gleevac as a trail drug and so far so good..she is in remission and only has to see her specialist every 6 months now which is great it has done so much for her giving her life that perhaps she may not have had before.. as far as im concerned nothing has happened no reactions apart from the positive reactions! However the doctors are talking about using her as a 'guinine pig' in a new trail...about now because she has been on gleevac for soo long to take her off it and see if it has stopped the cancer from growing and monitor her, however there are high chances that she could come out of remission and not ever be able to get back into remission and this is what scares me..i dont want her to do it but she is considering it if its going to help save others how come i get it acrossed to her that her life is important too and we dont want to loose her?..also can anyone tell me does exssessive amounts of alochol affect how gleevac works??
