Tailored Therapies for Myelodysplastic Syndromes

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) represent a group of myeloid clonal hemopathies with heterogeneous clinical manifestations. The main clinical complication in MDS is morbidity due to cytopenias and the potential to progress into acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Unfortunately, approximately 30% of patients will eventually develop leukemia, and even in those who do not, prognosis is extremely poor. Prognosis is based on the International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS) or the Revised International ...
