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.
John Mascarenhas, MD, discussed the effect of the data from MANIFEST on the treatment landscape and the future of adding active agents to ruxolitinib for treatment of myelofibrosis.
Treatment with avapritinib led to clinically meaningful and statistically significant improvements in patient-reported symptoms and objective measures of mast cell burden in patients with non-advanced systemic mastocytosis.
A combination regimen comprised of ruxolitinib and pomalidomide was found to be safe and feasible in a cohort of intermediate-2 and high-risk patients with primary or secondary myelofibrosis and anemia, according to data from the phase 1b/2 MPNSG-0212 trial.
The combination of azacitidine and quizartinib produced preliminary responses in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome and myelodysplastic syndrome/myeloproliferative neoplasms whose tumors harbored FLT3 or CBL mutations, according to data from a phase 1/2 trial (NCT04493138).
Ropeginterferon alfa-2b produced durable complete hematologic responses without phlebotomy and showcased a consistent safety profile in Japanese patients with polycythemia vera, according to findings from a phase 2 study (NCT04182100) presented during the 2022 EHA Congress.
Single-agent bomedemstat was found to improve symptom scores, bone marrow fibrosis, spleen volumes, and anemia in patients with advanced myelofibrosis, according to findings from the phase 1/2 IMG-7289-CTP-102 trial (NCT03136185) presented during the 2022 EHA Congress.
A combination comprised of selinexor (Xpovio) and ruxolitinib (Jakafi) induced rapid spleen responses at week 12 and showcased a manageable toxicity profile in patients with treatment-naïve myelofibrosis.
Eltanexor has been granted a fast track designation from the FDA and an orphan medicinal product designation from the European Commission for use as a potential therapeutic option in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes.
Raajit K. Rampal, MD, PhD, discusses the potential utilization of navtemadlin in relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia and patients with blast phase myeloproliferative neoplasm in a phase 1b/2 trial.
Guadecitabine did not result in a statistically significant improvement in overall survival compared with physician’s choice of treatment in patients with relapsed/refractory myelodysplastic syndrome or chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, according to data from the phase 3 ASTRAL-3 trial.
Fedratinib was shown to be generally well tolerated in older patients with myelofibrosis who had received at least 3 months of prior ruxolitinib, according to findings from the phase 3b FREEDOM trial.
Single-agent navitoclax achieved a manageable safety profile compared with navitoclax plus ruxolitinib in patients with myelofibrosis. However, efficacy results, specifically at 24 weeks of treatment, favored the combination over navitoclax monotherapy.
