Expert Video - How is higher-risk MDS-related anemia treated?
MDS experts, Dr Rafael Bejar and Dr Casey O’Connell describe how higher-risk MDS-related anemia is treated. They discuss the use of hypomethylating agents (HMAs), such as azacitidine and decitabine, for higher risk MDS. These therapies are effective at improving low blood cell counts in about fifty percent of patients. They also explain how patients might be assessed as candidates for a stem cell transplant.
