MDS patients must begin the search for a donor as soon as possible

Dr Maria Teresa Voso, of the University Tor Vergata, Rome, Italy, talks about the importance of starting a donor search for patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) as soon as possible. She explains that a transplant eligible patient must be tested for a donor search as soon as their diagnosis is made. Unfortunately, transplantation is not usually suitable for older patients, but for patients up to the age of 65 to 70, the search for a donor should be started as as soon as possible as time is critical.
Recorded at the annual meeting of the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) in Marseille, France.
