Study AOP 03-007 was designed as a pivotal study to test, if Anagrelide (Thromboreductin®) was not inferior to hydroxyurea (HU) with respect to efficacy in patients with essential thrombocythaemia (ET).
The Anahydret study is a single blind, multi-centre, randomised multinational Phase III Study to compare the Efficacy and Tolerability of Anagrelide vs Hydroxyurea in Patients with Essential Thrombocythaemia.
The Study starts with a screening visit (visit 1) followed by an induction phase (V2 - V6). During the induction phase, dosing (Anagrelide or Hydroxyurea) is increased or decreased (according to response).
During the maintenance phase (V7 - V14) doses of treatment are adjusted at the highest tolerated level which is able to maintain the platelet count within the normal range.
During maintenance phase efficacy and safety evaluations are performed.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject)

Essential thrombocythaemia is a disorder of bone marrow, which causes too many platelets to be produced. Platelets are small cells carried around in the blood, which help form blood clots...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ruxolitinib versus anagrelide in subjects with essential thrombocythemia who are resistant to or intolerant of hydroxyur...
The hypothesis is that efficient prevention of thrombosis with aspirin at diagnosis becomes less useful once patients have achieved a complete hematologic response (CHR) and/or that this b...
Age related differences in response to a drug could arise from variation in pharmacokinetic (PK) and/or pharmacodynamic (PD) profiles between age groups. Whilst the efficacy and safety pro...
To evaluate the safety and efficacy profile of different treatment regimens of INCB018424 administered to two groups of patients; those with polycythemia vera (PV) and those with essential...
Evaluation of Xagrid® Efficacy and Long-term Safety, a Phase IV, prospective, non interventional study performed in 13 European countries enrolled high risk essential thrombocythemia patients treated...
Risk of thrombosis is significantly enhanced by both elevated platelet (PLT) and white blood cell (WBC) counts according to a retrospective analysis of a large anagrelide- registry in thrombocythemic ...
The mechanisms of thrombogenicity in essential thrombocythemia (ET) are complex and not well defined. Our objective was to explore whether phosphatidylserine (PS) exposure on blood cells and endotheli...
A 10-year-old boy presented with spontaneous bruising and was found to have extreme thrombocytosis without neutrophilia/shift to immaturity, basophilia or eosinophilia. While the peripheral blood and ...

A clinical syndrome characterized by repeated spontaneous hemorrhages and a remarkable increase in the number of circulating platelets.
An antineoplastic agent that inhibits DNA synthesis through the inhibition of ribonucleoside diphosphate reductase.
Drugs considered essential to meet the health needs of a population as well as to control drug costs. (World Health Organization Action Programme on Essential Drugs, 1994, p3)
Genes whose loss of function or gain of function MUTATION leads to the death of the carrier prior to maturity. They may be essential genes (GENES, ESSENTIAL) required for viability, or genes which cause a block of function of an essential gene at a time when the essential gene function is required for viability.
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.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
A diagnostic test is any kind of medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease. For example: to diagnose diseases to measure the progress or recovery from disease to confirm that a person is free from disease Clin...
