What are the myelodysplastic syndromes?
The myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a group of diseases in which the production of blood cells by the bone marrow is disrupted. In contrast to leukaemia, in which one specific type of blood cell (the white cell) is produced in excessively large numbers, the production of any, and sometimes of all, types of blood cells is affected.
