Pre-myeloid Cancer and Bone Marrow Failure Clinic Study


About this study

The purpose of this study is to test a new technology called Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) that may help identify this risk associated with precursor conditions and the likelihood that they will change into overt blood and bone marrow cancers. NGS is a procedure that looks at relevant cancer associated genes and what they do.
