The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of patients with Polycythemia Vera treated with Gleevec.
Phlebotomy is a standard temporizing treatment for Polycythemia Vera. Performing repeated phlebotomies may lead to iron deficiency and can contribute to a rising platelet count. This may create additional problems, such as clots particularly in patients older than 50. There is reason to believe that the use of Gleevec may cause a decrease in the activity of the marrow so that patients may not require as many or any phlebotomies. Thus, spleen function may possibly improve by decreasing in size and patients' platelet counts may also improve.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of the JAK2 inhibitor XL019 administered orally in adults with Polycythemia Vera.
The purpose of this study is to determine the activity of Glivec 400 mg po daily, as single agent, in inducing a haematological response in Polycythemia Vera. The patients will be asked t...
The primary objective of this study is to determine the overall response rate to erlotinib in patients with polycythemia vera (PV). Response rate will be assessed by improvement in the com...
The purpose of this project is to find genes whose mutations cause Polycythemia Vera, Essential Thrombocythemia and Primary Myelofibrosis.
This is an 18-week open-label, multicenter study to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of CEP-701 (lestaurtinib) treatment in patients with Polycythemia Vera (PV) and patients with Ess...
We report the clinical case of a patient presenting with an acute myocardial infarction with ST- segment elevation. The patient is affected by polycythemia vera for many years and doesn't have any oth...
Polycythemia Vera (PV) and essential thrombocythemia (ET) are myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) respectively characterized by erythrocytosis and thrombocytosis; other disease features include leukocy...
Therapy in Polycythemia Vera (PV), a myeloproliferative neoplasm, focuses on reducing cardiovascular (CV) risk without increasing bleeding or hematological progression. However, the real-world practic...
Polycythemia vera (PV) is a risk factor for systemic thromboses and ischemic stroke. This has been attributed to blood hyperviscosity, the result of increased blood cell production. Intravenous immuno...
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.
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.
An increase in the total red cell mass of the blood. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Member of the genus Trichechus inhabiting the coast and coastal rivers of the southeastern United States as well as the West Indies and the adjacent mainland from Vera Cruz, Mexico to northern South America. (From Scott, Concise Encyclopedia Biology, 1996)
Passage of blood from one fetus to another via an arteriovenous communication or other shunt, in a monozygotic twin pregnancy. It results in anemia in one twin and polycythemia in the other. (Lee et al., Wintrobe's Clinical Hematology, 9th ed, p737-8)
