Types of Treatments

 For each of our MDS patients, we devise a personalized course of treatment that takes a number of factors into consideration the severity of the disease and your age and overall health status. There are a number of treatment options:

Patients may also benefit from additional treatments, such as erythropoietin (Procrit™) and darbepoetin (Aranesp™). Both options stimulate the bone marrow to produce red blood cells. Injections of other medications that stimulate the bone marrow to produce more white blood cells include granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (Neupogen™) and pegfilgrastim (Neulasta™).
