Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS)

According to Cure Magazine, the successful myeloma chemotherapy drug, Revlimid, is also used to help patients with myelodysplastic syndromes. MDS is a catch-all diagnosis for a number of different blood disorders that usually require regular transfusion therapy. Use of Revlimid among certain types of MDS improved hemoglobin levels and close to 70% of these patients no longer required blood transfusions while using the drug. Do any of you know anyone with MDS? A friend of mine has a similar disorder which requires transfusions once each month.
