COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Gathering information about quality of life, fatigue, and other symptoms from
patients with myelodysplastic syndromes may help doctors learn more about the disease and may
help plan treatment.

PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying quality of life and symptoms in patients with newly
