Relapsed and Refractory

Some patients still have MDS cells in their bone marrow after treatment. This is called refractory MDS. Some patients have a return of MDS cells in the marrow and a decrease in normal blood cells after remission. This is called a relapse.

Refractory MDS

Refractory MDS is typically treated with a different treatment than the first therapy used. 


Relapsed MDS

Relapsed MDS is typically treated with either the same treatment used before or a different standard treatment.
