What is MDS?

Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) is a group of disorders in which the bone marrow does not function normally and fails to produce sufficient numbers of healthy blood cells. MDS can occur at any age, but most often develops in patients over the age of 60. MDS is sometimes also called myelodysplasia dysmyelopoiesis, oligoblastic leukemia, smoldering leukemia or preleukemia. In only a minority of cases (up to one third of cases), MDS will progress to acute myeloid leukemia.

A detailed description of MDS will follow here soon.
