The standard care for patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and decreased blood counts is constantly changing. 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)
