My partner (43) was diagnosed with ALL in June last year.
He has undergone a stem cell transplant (donor) and unfortunately relapsed after 3 months.
His consultant has mentioned the possibility of CAR T treatment but he has to wait another 2 months before he can have this as you cannot have had campath (something they used during his transplant) for 6 months before they start CAR T. He is now going through one cycle of inotuzumab as a holding treatment to get him to the 6 months before they can start Car-t.
Im looking for anyone who has had this treatment or currently going through it and any positive outcomes???
I noticed that you posted in the stem cell transplant group and you have had a reply there.
