The top three counts are ones that Mayo is particularly interested in watching, because the CC-4047 trial drug may eventually depress those numbers. If any of those three counts falls below its minimum, the protocol will be changed for me, or, eventually, I could even be dropped from the study.
No problems yet. The three key counts are all down slightly from last week, but still higher than two weeks ago. Red blood count (RBC) was a little low last week, back in range today.
Dexamethasone again tonight.
