Professor Nicolaus Kröger spoke to us at ASH 2018 about the major unmet needs in the treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome in elderly patients, and his phase III study comparing 5-azacytidine induction followed by allogeneic stem cell transplantation versus continuous 5-azacytidine according to donor availability in elderly patients with myelodysplastic syndrome.
