Hi,

What i have to say is not really a comment as such....

I'm Sebastien Christopher from Trinidad, West Indies Island.

I'm CML Phil.Chromosome Positive for the past 15 yrs. I was on Alpha Interferon 3.5 MIU's from the Initial stages for 5 yrs. plus, then i went straight to Gleevec 400Mg daily. Just about Oct. 2012 i had my Bone Marrow done, my results stated Complete Cytogentic Remission. I was told a long time ago that Gleevec is a Bone Marrow in a Bottle........I'm not 46 yrs. old.
