My PCR has released a new FAQ about Treatment Free Remission (TFR) – a potential treatment goal for some patients living with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML).
To keep patients at the center of our process, the Max team asked patient leaders and associations from around the world to send in their own questions about TFR. We compiled their submissions, identified common themes, and narrowed the field down to 10 key questions.
The answers in the FAQ were provided by CML expert, Max Medical Advisor, and friend of the organization, Dr. Michael J. Mauro of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Thanks to his extensive knowledge and experience, the document offers valuable information for patients and providers alike.
This FAQ marks another new resource created by The Max Foundation’s My PCR initiative – a global effort to increase access to polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for CML.
The Max Foundation extends its thanks to all the generous sponsors who make the My PCR initiative possible:
- Major Sponors: Bristol-Myers Squibb, Pfizer, Novartis, and Takeda Oncology
- Supporting Sponsors: Asuragen, Cepheid, and Incyte
With their support we’re expanding access to critical diagnostics in low- and middle-income countries around the world.
