Excerpt

Myelofibrosis (MF) belongs to a group of closely related blood cancers known as "myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs)" in which the bone marrow cells that produce the body?s blood cells develop and function abnormally. The result is excessive fibrous (scar) tissue formation in the bone marrow, which can lead to severe anemia, weakness, fatigue and an enlarged spleen and liver.
