Thanks

All,
The consent form clearly stated there was no direct benefit to me but the indirect benefit is I am learn whether I am likely to relapse or not and the lenalidomide could stall that for a while.

As far as the chimerism test, this isn't the one that is done routinely after a transplant. It was one that was developed at UF Health and is supposed to be much more accurate and predict relapse.


Cheers
