MDS is caused by mutation of one or more genes that control development of blood cells. Patients with this condition may present with clinical manifestations such as thrombocytopenia, neutropenia, and anemia. Although majority of cases (over 90%) are reported in people over the age of 60, the condition can occur at any age, more frequently in men than in women. About 30% of MDS cases advance to acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

The immunomodulatory drug segment is expected to retain its dominant position in the MDS drugs market due to strong sales of Revlimid. Supported by potential approvals of luspatercept and Aranesp, the anti-anemics drug segment is forecast to gain higher market share than hypomethylating agents, thus contributing significantly to the overall expansion of the market.

Developing novel drugs for the treatment of rare subsets of MDS patients is a key challenge as the disease is highly heterogeneous at the molecular level. In addition, morbidity issues and poor quality of life due to incapacitating effects of the standard of care treatment paradigms are causes of inconvenience for geriatric population.
