What is My PCR?
PCR stands for polymerase chain reaction. It’s a diagnostic and monitoring tool used to measure the response to treatment in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and other diseases. PCR is one of the most sensitive ways to detect the level of disease in a person with CML.
Despite its importance, many people living with CML are not able to properly monitor their treatment due to lack of access to, or understanding of, PCR technology.
My PCR is here to educate and equip people with knowledge and tools for PCR testing.
Our Goals are to Increase Awareness, Understanding, and Involvement.
Patient Awareness of the importance to monitor the level of residual disease.
Patient Understanding of the milestones in CML treatment.
Patients Involvement in their treatment.
Community Awareness of the needs of CML patients.
