TFR - Treatment Free Remission

CAUTION - - CAUTION - - CAUTION

Treatment Free Remission should not be attempted outside the context of a clinical trial

or without the direction of your CML physician.

The past few years have brought some amazing developments in the treatment of CML. One such development has been the arrival of clinical trials studying Treatment Free Remission or TFR. There is hope that over time, and with long, sustained molecular responses, some patients will be able to achieve a "true" remission and not be subjected to daily treatment with Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors (TKIs).
