Predicting Outcome: Role of Monitoring MRD in Ph+ ALL Following Transplantation Several studies of MRD status following allogeneic transplantation provide intriguing information about the risk of relapse in Ph+ ALL and may help to identify patients who are likely to relapse (45–49). All of these studies found that patients who are consistently BCR/ ABL– following transplantation are unlikely to relapse and may become long-term survivors. Conversely, patients who are BCR/ABL+ following transplantation seem to be at high risk for subsequent relapse.
