My husband was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myeloid Lukemea) that has mutaion or moleclar change in a gene called Flt 3. He is under going treatment and completed the fourth Chemo cycle. Also he is on a study drug calledI Midosaturin . I recently read that 'Imitinef Mercilet' is a cure for Blood Cancer and it is available at Adayar Cancer Institute, Chennai, India. Is it correct? The name of the medicine is :'Imitinef Mercilet'
Since your husband is diagnosed with AML which is a type of blood cancer, chemotherapy is one of the best solutions for him. Midostaurin is a promising medicine and is under multiple research and treatment trials. If your husband is getting this medicine then let him continue taking it under the recommendation of his doctor. It is considered effective for a type of cancer called systemic mastocytosis.
The promotion of imitinef mercilet in some sections of media is misrepresented. Just like midostaurin, imitinef mercilet is the name of another medicine which was in trials some time back. This medicine was not totally curative for all blood cancers but under research for certain blood cancer types. Unfortunately due to public ignorance, this was made in to a news report and mail and circulated among unintended sections of society. It is important not to get misled by such details. Please do not worry.
