Treatments for Myelodysplastic Syndrome
Blood and Marrow Transplantation
This process delivers healthy blood or bone marrow (as stem cells) to replace unhealthy bone marrow. Before the transplant, intensive treatment will kill as many cancer cells as possible to set the stage for new bone marrow growth.
Cancer Genetics Program
A specialty service that can help you discover if you are genetically predisposed to certain cancers.
This well-known cancer treatment uses medicines taken intravenously or by mouth to kill cancer cells throughout the body. Chemotherapy may be given before surgery to shrink tumors, or after to fight cancer cells that have potentially spread.
