: : My wife has been diagnosed with MDS since Dec. 1996. She has recently
: : been classified as having "Refractory Anemia with Excess Blasts in
: : Transformation". Our hemotologist has told us this is virtually the same
: : as full-blown Leukemia.
: : She is transfusion-dependent for red blood cell supplementation. Her White
: : Count has recently been rising at a fast rate. Her Hemotologist has advised
: : Topotecan infusion if her white cells continue to rise. I would be interested
: : in any comments on this condition, and especially concerning the Topotecan
: : 5-day infusion.

: : Thanks.

: Norm,
: My father has just been diagnosed with the same diesease. He is 71 years old and
: not a candidate for bone marrow transplant. He has low red, white, and platlete cell
: counts. Treatement so far has been transfusions and nupogen shots. The main
: concern now is his low white blood cell count. I would be interested in knowing
: if your wife's high white cell count was caused by a drug , and if so what that
: drug that was.

: Thanking you in advance.

: Brian Peale
