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.
