Get the Facts on Myelofibrosis

Myelofibrosis is a rare bone mar­row cancer in which the marrow is replaced by fibrous (scar) tissue.

Myelofibrosis belongs to a group of closely related blood cancers, known as myeloproliferative neoplasms, in which the bone marrow cells that produce the body’s blood cells develop and function abnormally. The result is excessive fibrous tissue formation in the bone marrow, which can lead to severe anemia, weakness, fatigue, and an enlarged spleen and liver.

Measuring Your CML Treatment Response

Your doctor needs to monitor your response to drug therapy for chronic myeloid leukemia with blood and bone marrow tests. This is a critically important step to under­take to bring your CML under control. Your test results help your doctor decide whether to increase your drug dose to try for a better response, de­crease or stop the drug briefly because of side effects, change to a different drug or drug combination to better con­trol the CML, or change to a different drug or drug combination to manage side effects.
