Re: SAA & progression to MDS

Hello: Yes, I read of the possibility of AA transforming to MDS. It's not clearly documented whether the transformation is a natural progression of AA or if it is induced from the immunosuppressive treatment for the AA. There is one gal on the AA stories section of this site who transformed from AA to MDS, but I think it took quite some time after a couple relapses and treatments of ATG. Her name is Bridget, and you can read her story which is #83. I've also read that they have been doing some clinical trials using ATG for MDS patients. Haven't followed up on the results of those, but seems that they're trying ATG for other blood conditions as well. I haven't heard that they're trying high dose cytoxan of MDS, though. Take care, Marla
