Would you like your treatment center to become part of the referral system for MDS patients and be designated as a Center of Excellence? To be recognized as a Center of Excellence, an institution must have:
  • An established university (or equivalent) program
  • Recognized morphologic expertise in MDS
  • Available cytogenetics and/or molecular genetics
  • Ongoing research, including Institutional Review Board-approved clinical trials
  • Documentation of peer-reviewed publications in the field
Clinical trials study new interventions (drugs or procedures) to evaluate their safety and effectiveness in humans. Trials follow a careful set of steps, allowing for the systematic gathering of information to answer questions and confirm hypotheses that were formed earlier, in either laboratory experiments or preliminary trials. If you are an MDS patient, you may wish to discuss a trial with your primary treating physician to see if you qualify as a candidate. LEARN MORE
