What are erythropoietin-stimulating agents (ESAs)?
MDS experts, Dr Alan List and Dr David Sallman, provide an overview of the use of erythropoietin-stimulating agents (ESA’s) for myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). ESA’s stimulate the bone marrow to help make red blood cells. They describe how ESA’s are given, how often they are used, and how long the benefits typically last.
