The UK MDS Patient Support Group about access to treatment

Hi all,
The UK MDS Patient Support Group reports that MDS patients could have lived longer with access to the best treatment (for example Vidaza).

Kind regards

Birgitta,

The link in your post didn't work, since it depended on your own login ID. For your privacy we removed it from your post.

Can you post a generic link or tell us what the report said?

MDS treatment in UK

Hi all,
I will try another link about info from the UK MDS Patient Support Group: Almost a fifth (18 percent) of patients suffering from myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) could have lived for longer if they had been able to access treatments (for example Vidaza) that are currently not approved by NICE for treatment on the NHS.
