  • Genetic predisposition to MDS
    Lecture duration: 42 min

    Genetic predisposition to MDS

    When should you consider an inherited syndrome? How many inherited syndromes are there? What types of mutations lead to these syndromes? How does malignancy develop in particular individuals? How do you provide long-term management for individuals with an inherited predisposition?

  • Molecular mutations update
    Lecture duration: 35 min

    Molecular mutations update

    After the completion of this course, you will be able to recognise the most common recurrently mutated genes in MDS and the classes to which they belong. You will also be able to understand how mutations in normal individuals with CHIP differ from those seen in patients with MDS and CCUS and finally you will be able to identify the genes associated with prognostic significance that is independent of the IPSS-R.

    Flow cytometry

    Arjan van de Loosdrecht is one of the global specialists in flow cytometry in MDS. He gives an introduction to the technique of flow cytometry and presents major findings in this field for patients with MDS.

  • Bone Marrow Histology in MDS
    Lecture duration: 20 min

    Bone Marrow Histology in MDS

    In the most cases of MDS, bone marrow biopsy may provide additional information about marrow cellularity, fibrosis and CD34+ cell clusters. Specific phenomena like the ALIPS (abnormal location of immature precursors), which is associated with a negative prognosis, are detectable with biopsy.

  • The use of molecular diagnostics in patients with MDS
    Lecture duration: 14 min
    Added on: 22-05-2013
    The use of molecular diagnostics in patients with MDS

    New publications indicated that mutation status in MDS might be clinically very important and in particular, that specific mutations predict survival independent of other variables. Mutations specific for some MDS-subtypes will be discussed as well as their clinical relevance.

  • Cytogenetic Prognosis
    Lecture duration: 13 min
    Added on: 22-05-2013
    Cytogenetic Prognosis

    Cytogenetic analysis is not only necessary from the diagnostic point of view but enables us to get important prognostic and therapeutic information. The new cytogenetic risk groups will be explained in detail with special regard to cytogenetic abnormalities correlated with specific MDS-subtypes.

  • Assessment of prognosis in MDS
    Lecture duration: 12 min
    Added on: 22-05-2013
    Assessment of prognosis in MDS

    The clinical course for MDS is variable and focuses on morphology type and prognostic parameters. There is a variety of clinical, laboratory, morphologic and cytogenetic factors influencing or reflecting prognosis. The scoring systems will be discussed as well as other new prognostic parameters.
