2nd ASCT - Day 139 - M-Spike Up - October 4 2012

Well, my M-Spike is back and it continues to CREEP UP. Last month it was 0.3 and as of 2 Oct  2012, it is 0.4. This value increased after one full cycle of Zolinza (vorinostat). I'm sure this value along with the increasing LDH represents RELAPSE. I'm not in a panic yet because I feel so well and I have my follow-up appointment at the University of Colorado Hospital with Clay Smith, MD on 16 Oct 2012.

For now, I will continue with the second cycle of Zolinza (vorinostat) 2 Oct to 15 Oct 2012 and weekly Velcade  with dexamethasone.
