2nd ASCT - Test Results from July 12 2012

My M-Spike from July 12 2012 is <0.1 (less than 0.1) which is good (zero is normal).

Here is my M-Spike history since December 1, 2011 when I was in remission following my 1st autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT). I relapsed in late February 2012 and my M-Spike jumped up to 0.5. I received 2 course of VD-PACE in March and April 2012 and my M-Spike went down to 0.4, 0.3, and 0.2. I had my 2nd ASCT on May 18 2012 after a week of BEAM chemotherapy and on Day 55 my M-Spike is less than 0.1.

My Beta-2 Microglobulin is 2.5 (norms 1.3-2.9).

My Beta-2 Microglobulin history since June 15 2011 (prior to any ASCT) was 3.5 (norms 1.3 to 2.9). Dropped to 1.8 after 1st ASCT and only climbed to 2.2 at relapse. Day 55 after 2nd ASCT 2.5.

My free light chains are all low which is good.

I had a Vitamin D deficiency on May 15 2011 of 10 (norms 30-100). I took 8 weeks of Vitamin D pills (one pill once a week) and my deficiency is cured on July 12 2012 with 45 (norms 30-100).
