I’m really hoping you guys will be able to help. My partner who is 34 was diagnosed with AML with 20% blast cells. He has the T8:21 inversion.
The first course of chemo was cyatarabine which was unsuccessful. He was then put on daunorucibin which bought his blasts down and it was combined with cladribine and it stopped the daunorucibin from working and his blast cells went to 72%
He was then given the option of a trial drug; daunorucibin with gliteritinib but treatment of this was delayed becaue he developed an abscess and had to have emergency root canal treatment.
So finally he has the new combo chemo last Monday and had a blood test on the Friday. The results came back and his blasts are now at 81%
We realise they could have been much higher than this prior to the new chemo but have been dealt a devastating blow; if his blasts don’t come down at the next treatment which is due early next week, he only has weeks or a month at best.
I could really do with some advice right now; he’s in a terrible place and we’re struggling to comprehend this. Any advice would be a ray of light in these dark times
