The OncLive Myeloproliferative Neoplasms condition center is a comprehensive resource for clinical news and expert insights on myeloproliferative neoplasms, including myelofibrosis, polycythemia vera, and essential thrombocythemia. This page features news articles, interviews in written and video format, and podcasts that focus on unmet needs, treatment advances, and ongoing research in myeloproliferative neoplasms.

Magenta Therapeutics has voluntarily paused enrollment for a phase 1/2 trial evaluating the antibody-drug conjugate MGTA-117 in patients with relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome following the death of a patient.

Low platelet counts were associated with a greater severity of disease-related symptoms compared with low hemoglobin in patients with myelofibrosis, according to findings from a retrospective analysis of the phase 3 PERSIST-1 and PAC203 trials.
Momelotinib elicited durable symptom, transfusion independence, and splenic responses through 48 weeks of treatment in patients with myelofibrosis who have anemia and previously received a JAK inhibitor.
The combination of selinexor and ruxolitinib significantly reduced spleen volume and total symptom score while achieving hemoglobin stabilization in an open-label dose-escalation/dose-expansion, phase 1 study of patients with treatment-naïve myelofibrosis.
Olverembatinib was found to uphold clinical benefit and continued to have an acceptable safety profile in patients with BCR-ABL1 T315I-mutant chronic myeloid leukemia -chronic phase or -acute phase that is resistant to TKIs.
Mikkael A. Sekeres, MD, MS, discussed the changes to the classifications of MDS, the evolution of targeted therapies for patients with acute myeloid leukemia, and approaches for patients with bone marrow failure syndromes.
Luspatercept generated a statistically significant improvement in red blood cell transfusion independence with concurrent hemoglobin increase vs epoetin alfa in patients with very low–, low-, or intermediate-risk myelodysplastic syndromes who require RBC transfusions, meeting the primary end point of the phase 3 COMMANDS trial.
Haris Ali, MD, discusses a phase 1 dose-escalation trial investigating the administration of selinexor in combination with ruxolitinib for patients with treatment-naïve myelofibrosis.
Patients with polycythemia vera, a myeloproliferative neoplasm associated with JAK2 mutations and overproduction of red blood cells, often require regular therapeutic phlebotomies to avoid thrombosis.
Treatment with GB2064 monotherapy for at least 6 months led to a reduction in collagen fibrosis of the bone marrow of at least 1 grade in 4 of 5 evaluable patients with myelofibrosis, according to topline findings from a planned intermediate assessment of the phase 2a MYLOX-1 trial.
Treatment with rusfertide generated sustained hematocrit control at levels below 45% in patients with polycythemia vera, leading to a reduced need for repeated phlebotomy and eliminating this need in some patients, according to findings from 2 phase 2 clinical trials.
Emavusertib elicited antitumor activity when given as a monotherapy in patients with relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia or high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome that harbored a spliceosome or FLT3 mutation.
The FDA has granted permission for enrollment to resume in the monotherapy phase 1a portion of the phase 1/2 TakeAim Leukemia trial evaluating emavusertib in relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia or high-risk myelodysplastic syndromes.
Rami Komrokji, MD, expands on the disease factors and treatment options for lower-risk and higher-risk myelodysplastic syndromes, and highlights other key updates in chronic lymphocytic leukemia, mantle cell lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and myelofibrosis.
Liquid biopsy using targeted next-generation sequencing for early diagnosis and monitoring of patients with myeloid neoplasms is effective and detects chromosomal structural abnormalities.
