Expert Video - What other options are there if first-line MDS treatment doesn’t work?

MDS experts, Dr Alan List and Dr David Sallman, discuss treatment options and sequences that might be used if the first-line treatment for myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) does not work, or stops working. These decisions are personalized for each patient, so it is important to talk to your doctor about trying another drug, or a combination of drugs, or about possible clinical trials.
