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 complete blood count, ultrasound of the spleen, and JAK2 molecular status. It is purposed in this study to explore a possible molecular targeting of the driving mechanism of PV.
This is a phase II open-label study. Patients will be screened for MPN diagnoses and patients with Polycythemia vera proven to have JAK2V617F mutation will be given the option to enroll. Consenting patients will take erlotinib daily for 16 weeks. Blood work and phamacokinetics will be drawn for serum level monitoring. Doses will be administered according to side effects or held. First assessment will be at day 15 wth subsequent assessments at 28 day intervals. Non-responders will be taken off the study and managed according to standard of care. Patients who do respond will continue taking the therapy for a total of 12 months. Observation will be for a total of 12 months after finishing treatment. In addition to the clinical aspect of this study, there will be correlative studies where molecular response will be checked and its correlation with clinical response.

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...
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.
