Dear Sir,
Myelodysplasia Syndrome is associated with pancytopenea (low count of all normal blood cells ie RBC,Platlets,Neutrophils ,lymhocytes).
Ideally speaking positive CURATIVE responses are seen in ALLOGENIC BONE MARROW STEM CELLS TRANSPLANTATION UNDER CARE OF HAEMATOLOGIST IS MUST. Other wise patient needs frequent Blood Transfusions, Erythropoietine support , Myeloid Growth factors, Thrombocytic stimulation drugs.
