A new agent for the treatment of patients with myelodysplastic syndrome

In a paper published this week in PLoS Medicine, Azra Raza and colleagues (University of Massachusetts) use gene expression profiling to identify a molecular signature that predicts response to lenalidomide in patients without chromosome 5q deletions. This suggests that these patients have a defect in erythroid differentiation.

In a related review article, Jerry Radich (Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, USA) reviews key research on the biology underlying treatment response in myelodysplasia, including Raza and colleagues' new study.
