New life in hematology

Blood transfusions have been the foundation of hematology for 50 years, and the risk/benefit of regular transfusion is not appropriate for many patients. We recognize and seek to alleviate the challenges faced by individuals with congenital anemias, myelodysplastic syndrome, myeloproliferative disorders, thalassemia, and anemia of chronic disease – both those who receive transfusions and those who don’t.
