Lower-risk MDS patients
Patients with low or intermediate-1 risk MDS according to the International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS)
Other: No interventions
Only registration of clinical practice
Data on patients with low or intermediate-1 risk MDS will be collected prospectively at diagnosis and at 6-months intervals after diagnosis. The data will be gathered by seventeen existing national MDS Registries that are represented within the LeukemiaNet MDS Working Party and will be combined in one central European Database. Data analyses will be conducted by the Data Management Centre after every 400 patients included in the European Registry and at the end of the follow-up period.
Number of Patients & Centres Over 140 hematology centres in seventeen different countries (Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, The Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom) will participate as referral centres in this Registry. The recruitment target is a minimum of 2000 cases.
The study population will consist of newly diagnosed patients with IPSS low- or intermediate-1 risk myelodysplastic syndrome.
The enrolment time is scheduled to continue until January 2017. Patients will be followed during 5 years.
