  • Overview

    New and novel therapeutics for the treatment myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) are in development. What are these agents, and how do they work? Listen in as Dr. Andrew Brunner and Dr. Amy DeZern discuss ongoing clinical trials, current data from those trials, and the future potential for tailoring treatment plans.

    Since the completion of this activity, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has lifted the partial clinical hold placed on studies evaluating the investigational agent magrolimab in combination with azacytidine for the treatment of MDS and AML.
