I have only had the DISC ASSY test performed the once and that was prior to treatment back in 2002. However, prior to treatment again this year I will have the test repeated to ensure that I am still sensative to my drug of preference. Last time my insurance company paid for the test, but I know of people who had the test performed on the NHS.

I will try, in the next day or so, to scan the results of my DISC ASSY test so as you can see what the results show.

Hope this helps.

Robert
