Answer

Although treatment of symptoms improves quality of life in MDS, these measures are temporary. More long-term measures are necessary to stimulate the patient's bone marrow production of mature blood cells. Practitioners are encouraged to refer patients for participation in clinical trials at academic centers and the MDS Centers of Excellence.
