NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Researchers have uncovered distinct genetic subtypes of myeloproliferative neoplasms, which, in combination with other clinical data, could help guide treatment approaches.

Myeloproliferative neoplasms are a group of chronic blood cancers associated with a risk of bleeding and blood clots, but they can also progress to more advanced disease, including leukemia. The current classification system divides these blood cancers into groups based on their clinical and laboratory features, but there is some overlap between the categories.
