Enrolled in the Clinical Trial
I enrolled in the clinical trial. I will have the blood drawn for the first (of three) "CD34+ mixed chimerism analysis" on Tuesday, 7 June. The results are supposed to be back in approximately 1 week. If the chimerism is less that 90% the study literature (consent form) says I will start the Lenalidomide at 2.5 mg for a 28 day cycle (taking the drug for 21 days and then skipping 7 days till the next cycle begins) within 5 days.
This is not the normal chimerism test that is routinely done and not "standard of care". It is a test that was developed at Shands at the University of Florida. I have been told it is expensive.
