Anyone had successful stem cell transplant for AML?
@bradmm, I'm tagging a few members who have had a stem cell transplant for a blood cancer or who are the caregiver of someone who has undergone stem cell transplantation, like @larsmayo @ruttgerbay @rajendrakumarojha @jeaniecm @ckeys @kjjjrader @nick0820 and @grandpabob. Not all were for acute myeloid leukemia (AML), but relevant experiences none-the-less.
What was the trial treatment that your wife had?

We were told that the normal chemo for AML would do her no good so Pevonedistat, a drug not FDA approved so not available elsewhere, was added and the Study Chair has commented that she has responded well. She's the first with her specific disease to get this combination but it's been effective.
