We performed a two-step polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to detect bcr-abl-specific mRNA in 440 peripheral blood and/or bone marrow samples of 30 chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients (mean 15, range 2-50 samples) following non T-cell-depleted allogeneic (n = 28) or syngeneic (n = 2) bone marrow transplantation (BMT). Median follow-up after BMT is 40… CONTINUE READING
