You can find information on our collaborative efforts to translate findings from our laboratory based studies into novel clinical trials to evaluate treatments for patients living with MPNs. Visit MPN-RC to read more about our exciting research and our leaders who are spearheading this important research and subscribe for updates.

Are You a Vietnam Veteran?
Were you exposed to Agent Orange? Do You Have Myelofibrosis (MF), Polycythemia Vera (PV) or Essential Thrombocythemia (ET)?
MPN Advocacy and Education International is conducting a survey of Vietnam Veterans to determine how many were exposed to Agent Orange and now have a diagnosis of Myelofibrosis, Polycythemia Vera, or Essential Thrombocythemia (Myeloproliferative Neoplasms- MPNs. This information will be collected in an attempt to add myeloproliferative neoplasms to the US Department of Veterans Affairs ‘presumptive’ list of conditions resulting from exposure to Agent Orange/dioxin during the Vietnam War and could create a resource for assistance with treatments and compensation.
This is our first step in what could allow for further research into the link between myeloprliferative neoplasms and exposure to Agent Orange/dioxin.
