Latest studies in #MDS

A major complication of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS ) is worsening cytopenias due to bone marrow failure . Novel therapeutic approaches are urgently needed for MDS, as current therapies have modest responses and many patients are not suitable candidates for bone marrow transplantation. Our preliminary study revealed a role of sequestosome 1/p62 in the pathogenesis and disease evolution of MDS. For this study, we will dissect the functional domains on p62 and associated signaling pathways that are necessary for the development and maintenance of MDS. Moreover, we propose to target p62-intacting complexes using a peptide approach as an attempt to target MDS clones and prevent disease evolution. This study will improve our understanding of MDS-associated bone marrow failure and may reveal new therapeutic strategies.
