Hi Sally,
Thank you for giving info about Promacta trials. You know when I got my dx 2006 with platelets at 65 I understood that I should need treatment for low platelets. I have been following Promacta and the other drug for low platelets called Nplate during 6 years now.

There are several studies in MDS patients about Nplate and we know since several years that Nplate can give increased fibrosis and blast in MDS patients.

There are still no reports about Promacta in MDS patients but in cell lines from MDS patients the drug has had a positive effect.
Kind regards
