Good evening. Your father is on 2nd line therapy after progression on first line treatment. We cannot predict the response based on ESR and LDH as these are non specific markers. Response can only be assessed by imaging, eith a CT scan or PETCT scan. Moreover if he is fit, he can go for marrow transplant as a curative therapy.
