Hello Dr. Louise,
Yes, Fanconi's has absolutely been ruled out as his breakage test was completely normal & no abnormal body parts could be found. Josef is not on any drugs at this time, only herbs & vitamins, all of which have been approved by his hematologist as not interrupting anything she's done. The last time he was on septra was I believe in January '09.
His most recent bone marrow test showed: 80% cellularity, blasts are not increased, lymphoid gate, 13%, kappa/CD19, 7%, lambda/CD19, 5%, CD5/CD19, 4%, CD20, 13%, CD10, 15%, CD19, 27%, CD5, 49%, CD19/CD10, 16%, TdT, 4% (scattered positive cells). Flow cytometric analysis shows a small population of CD19/CD10 positive cells present.
His doc had mentioned a while back that his marrow showed more of a possibility to morph into a different disease like leukemia based on some of the percentages she saw. Does this ring true to you? Thanks again.
