Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are both blood cell diseases. In chronic myeloproliferative neoplasms, the bone marrow makes too many cells. In myelodysplastic syndromes, blood cells don’t mature and begin to fill the bone marrow. 10% of MDS patients are diagnosed with MDS/MPN overlap syndrome.
Dr. Raajit Rampal from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center explains an MDS/MPN overlap diagnosis and discusses the possible causes and symptoms you might experience. He concludes with current and emerging treatment options.
By the end of this program, you will understand:
- The different types of MDS/MPN overlap syndromes (CMML, JMML, CML)
- Treatment options available and on the horizon
- The role of personalized medicine in a MDS/MPN diagnosis
- How to take an active role in your care
