Supportive therapy, including transfusions of the cells that are missing (ie, RBCs, platelets), and treatment of infections are the main treatments. New drugs such as 5-azacytidine (azacytidine [Vidaza]),11,12 5-aza-2-deoxycytidine (decitabine [Dacogen]), and lenalidomide (Revlimid)13 are now approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)
