Increased levels of TGF-β1 were detected in serum, plasma and BM and positively correlated with both grade of BMF and extent of leukemic cell infiltration in the marrow. TGF-β likely plays a dual role in promoting myelofibrosis and myeloproliferation, both of which are the bone marrow morphologic hallmark of MF. AVID200 is a drug that targets TGF-β1 and TGF-β3. The study team hypothesizes that inhibiting the TGF-β signaling pathway in MF will decrease the fibrogenic stimuli leading to myelofibrosis and concomitantly interrupt myeloproliferation and restore normal hematopoiesis.
This is a first in human, open-label, multicenter, Phase I/Ib trial of AVID200. Patients must have intermediate-2 or higher primary myelofibrosis (PMF), post-essential thrombocythemia or polycythemia-vera related MF (Post ET/PV MF). This study will enroll up to 24 patients. AVID200 is delivered by IV infusion on day 1 of each 3 week cycle.
This is a first in human, open-label, multicenter, Phase I/Ib trial of AVID200. To date, there is no therapy for MF evaluated in the clinic that clearly demonstrates the ability to target the malignant HSC and result in effective and reproducible bone marrow morphologic, cytogenetic and molecular responses. Medicinal therapies that result in disease course modification are urgently needed in this chronic and progressive myeloid malignancy. TGF-β likely plays a dual role in promoting myelofibrosis and myeloproliferation, both of which are the bone marrow morphologic hallmark of MF. The study team proposes that inhibiting the TGF-β signaling pathway in MF will decrease the fibrogenic stimuli leading to myelofibrosis and concomitantly interrupt myeloproliferation and restore normal hematopoiesis. AVID200 is a fusion protein containing TGF-β receptor ectodomains fused to a human Fc IgG domain. AVID200 is a potent TGFβ trap with antibody-like properties which has pM potency against two of the three TGFβ ligands, TGFβ1 and β3.

Several lines of evidence place TGF-β, a potent pro-fibrotic cytokine, at the centre of the pathogenesis of Systemic Sclerosis (SSC). AVID200 is a novel inhibitor of TGF-β ligands. This ...

Somatic mutations in gene have been reported in 60%-88% of patients with essential thrombocythemia (ET) and primary myelofibrosis (PMF) who are negative for and mutations. Most of the mutations an...
Classical Philadelphia-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms include Polycythemia Vera (PV), Essential Thrombocythemia (ET) and Primary Myelofibrosis (PMF). They are characterized by the presence of d...
Patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) are known to have higher incidence of nonhematological second primary malignancies (SPM) compared to general population. In the MYSEC study on 781 seco...
A de novo myeloproliferation arising from an abnormal stem cell. It is characterized by the replacement of bone marrow by fibrous tissue, a process that is mediated by CYTOKINES arising from the abnormal clone.
An acute myeloid leukemia in which 20-30% of the bone marrow or peripheral blood cells are of megakaryocyte lineage. MYELOFIBROSIS or increased bone marrow RETICULIN is common.
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.
