Study on Vietnam Veterans with MPNs
May 21, 2014
MPN Advocacy and Education International is searching for Vietnam Veterans who were exposed to Agent Orange and now have a diagnosis of Myelofibrosis, Polycythemia Vera, or Essential Thrombocythemia (Myeloproliferative Neoplasms-MPNs).
This information will be collected in an attempt to add myeloproliferative neoplasms to the US Department of Veterans Affairs 'presumptive' list of conditions resulting from exposure to Agent Orange/dioxin during the Vietnam War and could create a resource for assistance with treatments and compensation.
MPN Research Foundation is assisting this effort by asking patients who match this description to contact MPN Advocacy and Education International at firstname.lastname@example.org or 517.899.6889. This project hopes to also generate interest into further research into the link between myeloproliferative neoplasms and exposure to Agent Orange/dioxin.
