During this program, recorded on August 11, 2014, Dr. Michaelis focuses on helping you understand the recent advances in understanding the molecular pathogenesis of MDS. She discusses diagnostic procedures and prognostic models and how these tools might allow doctors to refine and tailor treatments to each specific MDS patient's needs in the future. In addition, Dr. Michaelis reviews treatment strategies and options currently being used for patients with higher-risk MDS, including drug therapy, supportive care, and stem cell transplantation. The factors that influence specific treatment decisions are also discussed.
