What are MPNs?

Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs) is the name given to a group of conditions sometimes referred to as blood cancers.

MPNs originate in the bone marrow – the soft tissue in the middle of the bones where blood cells are made. In a healthy person, bone marrow makes blood stem cells that, in time, develop into mature blood cells – red blood cells, white blood cells or platelets.
