    Clinical Trial

    first 6 months after diagnosed was on traditional interferron and chemo shots and got progressively worse after 6 months I was switched to Gleevec, then known by number not name within 4 weeks my numbers started climbing. now 13 years later I take 1 gleevec a day and the last test could not find any cancer cells out of the 100,000 they checked. have to put up with fluid retention but small price to pay.
