Myelodysplastic Syndrome with Excess of Blasts - Long Term Partial
Remission with Low Dose Prednisone, G-CSF and Epoetin Alfa
We have used low-dose prednisone, in conjunction with granulocyte,
colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and erythropoietin, to treat an
elderly patient with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) with an excess of
blasts. Our findings indicate that such treatment is safe and may be
effective in the long term survival of patients with high-risk MDS.
