The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible prognostic relevance of thymidine kinase serum levels (s-TK), an indirect marker of proliferative activity, in myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). S-TK levels were monitored by means of a radioenzyme assay in 90 patients affected by MDS (22 refractory anaemia, RA; 17 RA with ring sideroblasts, RARS; 21 RA with… CONTINUE READING
