Answer

The standard care for patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and decreased blood counts is constantly changing. Supportive therapy, including transfusions of the cells that are deficient (ie, red blood cells [RBCs], platelets), and treatment of infections are the main components of care.
