The MPD Foundation’s primary mission is to stimulate original MPD research in pursuit of new treatments and eventually a cure for polycythemia vera, primary myelofibrosis and essential thrombocythemia. In addition, the MPD Foundation promotes collaboration in the scientific community to accelerate MPD research, and serves as a powerful patient advocacy group for MPD patients and their families.
Myeloproliferative disorders (MPD) are a group of rare blood disorders which include Polycythemia Vera, Essential Thrombocythemia and Myelofibrosis. An orphan disease, the domestic prevalance of MPD is approximately 160,000.
The MPD Founded was founded in 2000 by MPD patients who were displeased with the lack of progress in treatments for their condition. They sought to create an organization that could support innovative efforts to advance scientific understanding of the causes and potential treatments for the MPDs. As of 2010 the Foundation has awarded over $8million in grants. In addition the MPD Foundation strives to raise awareness and educate patients through events and assisting patient support groups around the world.
