The myeloproliferative neoplasms include polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia, and myelofibrosis. Of these, myelofibrosis often has the most aggressive course. There is, however, often signifi...
Abstract Objective: Azacitidine (Vidaza ) is approved in Europe for treatment of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with 20-30% bone marrow (BM) blasts, and chronic myelomon...
Transcription factor RUNX1 is essential for normal hematopoiesis. High mutation frequencies of RUNX1 gene in chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) have been descri...
Essential thrombocythemia is a clonal myeloproliferative neoplasm characterized by an elevated platelet count, the potential for both microvascular and macrovascular sequelae, and a risk for transform...
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most common adult leukemia in the Western world. Host immune surveillance caused mainly by the disease itself is speculated to be responsible for high inciden...
Male or female individuals, aged 18 years or older who have been diagnosed with Myelofibrosis (either Primary Myelofibrosis (PMF) or Post-Polycythemia Vera Myelofibrosis (PPV-MF) or Post-E...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects (good and bad) of Gleevec in patients with BCR-negative myeloproliferative disorders including myelofibrosis with myeloid metaplasia a...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of an alternative dosing strategy of ruxolitinib in subjects with primary myelofibrosis (PMF), post-polycythemia vera-myelofibrosis (PP...
The purpose of this project is to find genes whose mutations cause Polycythemia Vera, Essential Thrombocythemia and Primary Myelofibrosis.
This study will assess the safety and efficacy of Panobinostat as a single agent in the treatment of Primary Myelofibrosis, Post-Polycythemia Vera and Post-Essential Thrombocythemia. There...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A myelodysplastic-myeloproliferative disease characterized by monocytosis, increased monocytes in the bone marrow, variable degrees of dysplasia, but an absence of immature granulocytes in the blood.
A chronic leukemia characterized by a large number of circulating prolymphocytes. It can arise spontaneously or as a consequence of transformation of CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA.
A chronic leukemia characterized by abnormal B-lymphocytes and often generalized lymphadenopathy. In patients presenting predominately with blood and bone marrow involvement it is called chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL); in those predominately with enlarged lymph nodes it is called small lymphocytic lymphoma. These terms represent spectrums of the same disease.
A myeloproliferative disorder of unknown etiology, characterized by abnormal proliferation of all hematopoietic bone marrow elements and an absolute increase in red cell mass and total blood volume, associated frequently with splenomegaly, leukocytosis, and thrombocythemia. Hematopoiesis is also reactive in extramedullary sites (liver and spleen). In time myelofibrosis occurs.
The phase of chronic myeloid leukemia following the chronic phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, CHRONIC-PHASE), where there are increased systemic symptoms, worsening cytopenias, and refractory LEUKOCYTOSIS.
