The MPN Research Foundation, formerly known as the MPD Foundation, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to fund original research into myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) . This group of disorders is characterized by the overproduction (proliferation) of one or more of the three main blood cell lines - red or white blood cells or platelets. Red blood cells carry oxygen to the body. White blood cells fight infection. Platelets are involved in clotting of the blood in response to injury. Because the MPNs are characterized by uncontrolled cell growth, they may also be classified as blood cancers. These rare, hematological malignancies include polycythemia vera, myelofibrosis, and essential thrombocythemia. In addition, the Foundation promotes collaboration among MPN researchers and patient support groups.
