Description

Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) are a group of blood disorders related to leukaemia in which the body makes too many blood cells. MPN originates in the bone marrow - the soft tissue in the middle of the bones, where all the blood cells are made. In patients with MPN, normal blood cell production breaks down and the bone marrow becomes over-active and makes far too many blood cells. This can cause the blood to become thick. MPN can affect any of the blood cells (red, white and platelets) (Leukemia & Lymphona Research). This book is a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis and management of MPN. Beginning with an introduction, the following chapters examine the diagnostic classification, epidemiology, clinical features and treatment of different types of MPN. A complete chapter is dedicated to hematopoietic stem cell transplant in myelofibrosis. Edited by authoritative experts from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, this useful reference is enhanced by detailed images, illustrations and tables.
