Epidemiology study

What’s an epidemiology study?

There is little information on the causes of myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). Patients often ask ‘why do I have this disease?’ and for the majority there is no obvious reason.  In 2013 MPN Voice provided funding for a pilot study to evaluate the information and technology needed for researching potential causes of the condition. 

This research, known as MOSAICC, ((MyelOproliferative neoplasmS: An In-depth Case-Control ) was led by Dr Lesley Anderson, a lecturer in Cancer Prevention at Queen’s University Belfast and was an international collaboration of leading medical experts.
