    on the contrary, I learned last year that smokers are more likely to die from heart failures than lung cancer

    It looks like it's real.

    Revlimid - new drug breakthorugh in Myelodysplastic Syndrome
    Nearly 90 percent of MDS patients are anemic and require regular transfusions of red cells. In this study, 91 percent of the MDS patients with a chromosome abnormality named 5q minus syndrome became transfusion independent. The defective 5q chromosome abnormality may be linked to other serious cancers, including leukemias and small cell lung cancer.

    In another finding of the same study, all the patients with the 5q deletion who became transfusion independent also went into cytogenetic remission, meaning that the chromosome abnormality disappeared.
