Blood Cancer Clinical Trial

Observation of Myelodysplastic Syndromes

The National Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) Study


The purpose of The National MDS Study is to build a resource that scientists can use to learn more about a group of rare bone marrow diseases called myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). This resource will enable scientists to conduct research on how to improve the ways MDS is diagnosed and treated. The study will also help scientists, patients, and their families better understand what to expect when a patient is diagnosed with MDS. For more information, visit
