What we are studying
We are attempting to better understand the causes of MPD and to develop improved methods for the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases. These diseases carry a high risk of developing leukemia. It is important to continue to learn more about these blood cancers and to learn more about the effectiveness and potential side effects of various treatments. It is our belief that further information about these cancer cells as well as the effects of treatment will lead to the improvement of current therapies and the development of entirely new treatments for these diseases.
