MITHRIDATE: Ruxolitinib Versus Hydroxycarbamide or Interferon as First Line Therapy in High Risk Polcythemia Vera

2019-10-10 09:39:36 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The trial will be a phase III, randomised-controlled, multi-centre, international, open-label trial consisting of ruxolitinib versus best available therapy, where best available therapy is a choice of interferon alpha, any formulation permitted (IFN) or hydroxycarbamide (HC), and which will be elected by the Investigator prior to randomisation.

Description

The trial will be a phase III, randomised-controlled, multi-centre, international, open-label trial consisting of ruxolitinib versus best available therapy, where best available therapy is a choice of interferon alpha, any formulation permitted (IFN) or hydroxycarbamide (HC), and which will be elected by the Investigator prior to randomisation.

There will be no cross-over either between arm A and B or between therapies on Arm B

HC and IFN will be provided as best available therapy, IFN can include standard of pegylated-interferon at Investigators discretion.

KRT-232 Compared to Ruxolitinib in Patients With Phlebotomy-Dependent Polycythemia Vera

This study evaluates KRT-232, a novel oral small molecule inhibitor of MDM2, for the treatment of patients with phlebotomy-dependent polycythemia vera (PV). Inhibition of MDM2 in PV is a n...

TGR-1202 + Ruxolitinib PMF PPV-MF PET-MF MDS/MPN Polycythemia Vera Resistant to Hydroxyurea

This is a Phase 1, open-label, study of TGR-1202, a PI3K delta inhibitor, administered together with ruxolitinib in patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (specifically: polycythemia v...

Efficacy and Safety of Pegylated Interferon Alfa in Polycythemia Vera

Interferon alfa is an effective treatment of polycythemia vera (PV), but about 20% of patients discontinue their treatment because of side effects and treatment schedule (three times per w...

Expanded Treatment Protocol (ETP) of Ruxolitinib in Patients With Polycythemia Vera Who Are Hydroxyurea Resistant or Intolerant and for Whom no Treatment Alternatives Are Available.

The purpose of this open-label, single arm, multi-center Expanded Treatment Protocol (ETP) is to provide early access to ruxolitinib and evaluate safety information in patients with PV, wh...

Pegylated Interferon Alfa-2a Salvage Therapy in High Risk Polycythemia Vera (PV) or Essential Thrombocythemia (ET)

The aim of this research is to look at two conditions, Essential Thrombocythemia (ET) and Polycythemia Vera (PV). ET causes people to produce too many blood cells called platelets and PV c...

A phase I study of panobinostat and ruxolitinib in patients with primary myelofibrosis (PMF) and post--polycythemia vera/essential thrombocythemia myelofibrosis (post--PV/ET MF).

Ruxolitinib, a selective JAK1/JAK2 inhibitor, is the current first line therapy for myelofibrosis (MF), which reduces symptomatology and splenomegaly, but does not clearly modify disease course. Panob...

Treatment strategies for polycythemia vera: observations in a Dutch 'real world' cohort study.

Assessment of 'real-world' treatment strategies and outcome in Dutch Polycythemia Vera (PV) patients.

Outcomes Following Posterior Lumbar Fusion in Polycythemia Vera Patients.

Polycythemia Vera (PV) is a chronic myeloproliferative neoplasm that is associated with an increased risk for venous and arterial thromboembolism. The aim of this study is to evaluate outcomes followi...

Distinct effects of ruxolitinib and interferon-alpha on murine JAK2V617F myeloproliferative neoplasm hematopoietic stem cell populations.

JAK2V617F is the most common mutation in patients with BCR-ABL negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). The eradication of JAK2V617F hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) is critical for achieving mole...

Perioperative management of polycythemia vera with advanced gastric cancer: A case report.

Polycythemia vera (PV) is a chronic myeloproliferative disorder with generally good prognosis. However, thrombotic and cardiovascular complications are among the leading causes of death in patients wi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Interferon secreted by leukocytes, fibroblasts, or lymphoblasts in response to viruses or interferon inducers other than mitogens, antigens, or allo-antigens. They include alpha- and beta-interferons (INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA).

A ubiquitously expressed heterodimeric receptor that is specific for both INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA. It is composed of two subunits referred to as IFNAR1 and IFNAR2. The IFNAR2 subunit is believed to serve as the ligand-binding chain; however both chains are required for signal transduction. The interferon alpha-beta receptor signals through the action of JANUS KINASES such as the TYK2 KINASE.

The techniques used to draw blood from a vein for diagnostic purposes or for treatment of certain blood disorders such as erythrocytosis, hemochromatosis, polycythemia vera, and porphyria cutanea tarda.

An interferon regulatory factor that binds upstream TRANSCRIPTIONAL REGULATORY ELEMENTS in the GENES for INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA. It functions as a transcriptional activator for the INTERFERON TYPE I genes.

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.
