MDS experts, Dr Alan List and Dr David Sallman, discuss the safety of blood and marrow transplantation (BMT) for myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). Outcomes have improved in recent years, and more patients can now be considered for BMT. The success of the transplant and the severity of side effects vary from person to person, and can be difficult to predict. Talk to your doctor about whether BMT is an option for you.
