Myelodysplastic Syndrome

Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) affects how blood cells--white blood cells, red blood cells, platelets--are produced. MDS begins when bone marrow stem cells become genetically altered and begin inefficiently producing healthy blood cells and/or making defective blood cells. These defective blood cells often do not function as healthy cells should, and they tend to die earlier than healthy blood cells.
