Blood-Forming Bone Marrow Replaced With Fibrous Scar Tissue

The researches  find that the The drug is the first new therapy approved for myleofibrosis in nearly a decade, Celgene said in a statement. Myleofibrosis causes blood-forming bone marrow to be replaced with fibrous scar tissue. Therefore This deprives patients of energy and makes them vulnerable to infection. Blood-forming cells move to the spleen, liver…
