Allogeneic stem cell transplantation for agnogenic myeloid metaplasia: a European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation, Societe Francaise de Greffe de Moelle, Gruppo Italiano per il Trapianto del Midollo Osseo, and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Collaborative Study. (1/532)

Agnogenic myeloid metaplasia (AMM) is a chronic myeloproliferative disorder in which patients with poor prognostic features, receiving conventional treatments, have a median survival of less than 3 years. In this retrospective multicenter study, we analyze the results and try to define the indications for allogeneic stem cell transplantation in AMM. From January 1979 to November 1997, 55 patients with a median age of 42 years were transplanted from HLA-matched related (n = 49) or alternative (n = 6) donors for AMM. A multivariate analysis was conducted to identify factors associated with posttransplant outcome. The median posttransplant follow-up was 36 months (range, 6 to 223). The 5-year probability of survival was 47% +/- 8% for the overall group, and 54% +/- 8% for patients receiving an unmanipulated HLA-matched related transplant. The 1-year probability of transplant-related mortality was 27% +/- 6%. Hemoglobin level +info)

Jugular vein thrombosis: a rare presentation of atypical chronic myeloproliferative disorder in a young woman. (2/532)

Venous thromboembolism is common in subjects with chronic myeloproliferative disorders and is a recognized presenting feature of occult myeloproliferation. We report the case of a young woman who presented with acute thrombosis in the right jugular vein and pulmonary embolism. Splenomegaly and myeloid proliferation with bone marrow fibrosis, in the absence of the criteria for typical myeloproliferative disorders, allowed a diagnosis of an atypical form of chronic myeloproliferative disorder. This form carries a high risk of thrombosis and venous thromboembolism can be the presenting feature, though the course is often indolent. Acute thrombosis in the right jugular vein has not been so far described in these subjects. The outcome of young people with myelofibrosis is unpredictable, but a normal level of hemoglobin and the absence of blast cells and constitutional symptoms at presentation identifies subjects with a low probability of rapid disease progression.  (+info)

Dibromomannitol in the treatment of chronic granulocytic leukemia: a prospective randomized comparison with busulfan. (3/532)

Dibromomannitol (DBM) is a new agent for the treatment of chronic granulocytic leukemia. A propsective evaluation of the drug was undertaken in a randomized comparison with busulfan. Forty previously untreated, Philadelphia chromosome-positive cases were treated, with 20 patients in each treatment group. The protocol provided for continuous maintenance therapy after remission induction, with a crossover to the opposite drug in patients who became refractory to the primary agent but are without evidence of blastic tranformation. There were 14 remissions in the DBM group and 15 in those treated with busulfan. The rate of decrease of the elevated leukocyte count was more rapid with DBM, but prolonged disease control off treatment occurred in only three of 14 cases as opposed to nine of fifteen busulfan-treated patients who required a median delay of 12 mo before maintenance could be initiated. Hypoplasia occurred in one DBM patient and two busulfan cases. Following recovery, crossover to the opposite drug in two cases again resulted in hypopllasia. Increased skin pigmentation, amenorrhea, pulmonary fibrosis, and cytologic dysplasia, commonly associated with busulfan adminstration, were also noted with DBM. The median duration of disease control with busulfan was 34 mo and 26 mo with DBM. There was no signigicant difference in the incidence of blastic transformation, and median survival for both groups was 44 mo. DBM appears to be as effective as busulfan in the treatment of the chronic phase of CGL but with a more predictable myelosuppressive action. The principal advantage of busulfan over DBM is the fact that more than half the busulfan-treated patients experienced prolonged disease control off treatment.  (+info)

Myelofibrosis with myeloid metaplasia: diagnostic definition and prognostic classification for clinical studies and treatment guidelines. (4/532)

PURPOSE: Myelofibrosis with myeloid metaplasia (MMM) is a chronic myeloproliferative disorder characterized by bone marrow fibrosis and extramedullary hematopoiesis. Recent studies provide definite diagnostic criteria and prognostic classifications of the disease, and allogeneic stem-cell transplantation (SCT) now offers a chance of curing the disease. In order to put diagnostic criteria and prognostic classifications of the disease into the perspective of developing guidelines for treatment strategies, all studies published in the English literature over the last 30 years were reviewed. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Studies were identified through a MEDLINE search (1966 to present) and from the bibliographies of relevant articles. RESULTS: The Italian Consensus Conference on diagnostic criteria is a structured enterprise aimed at formulating a definition of MMM that will be used for enrolling patients onto clinical studies. It relies on the obligatory presence of myelofibrosis and on the exclusion of the BCR-ABL rearrangement or Philadelphia chromosome, in association with combinations of traditional features. Prognostic scores allow us to identify classes of patients on the basis of hemoglobin, age, WBC count, and chromosomal abnormalities. Several nonrandomized studies have indicated that allogeneic SCT for patients under the age of 55 is effective in prolonging survival in more than 50% of cases and in possibly curing the disease. Patients with the most severe prognosis are candidates. CONCLUSION: "Consensus" methodology offers a definition of MMM useful for conducting and reporting clinical studies. A detailed knowledge of prognostic factors can help to delineate guidelines for addressing patients with allogeneic SCT.  (+info)

Splenic myeloid metaplasia, histiocytosis, and hypersplenism in the dog (65 cases). (5/532)

Splenectomy specimens from 65 dogs with severe, diffuse, sustained, and progressive splenomegaly were examined. The clinical signs, hematology, and serum chemistry values in for the dogs were not useful diagnostic features. Microscopic changes in the spleens were distinctive and consisted of 1) myeloid metaplasia, 2) histiocytosis, 3) erythrophagocytosis, and 4) thrombosis with segmental infarction. Ultrastructural features suggested proliferative changes in the splenic reticular cells and macrophages (reticular meshwork) that described a continuum from reactive changes associated with immunologic damage of erythrocytes to neoplastic proliferation of histiocytic components. Thirty percent of the dogs survived 12 months. Approximately one half (53%) of the dogs with complete postmortem evaluations showed multiorgan involvement with a tissue distribution and cell morphology consistent with histiocytic neoplasia. For the remaining dogs (47%), only splenic pathology was consistently present, and a specific cause of death was often not evident. Distinctive histologic changes in the splenic tissues-including mitotic activity, erythrophagocytosis, giant cell formation, thrombosis/ infarction, and the proportion and distribution of histiocytic and hematopoietic cells-were statistically evaluated for prognostic relevance. The presence of giant cells was the only reliable prognostic feature, and that was indicative of a fatal outcome. These descriptive changes of myeloid metaplasia in the canine spleen are compared with the human clinical and pathologic syndromes of 1) agnogenic myeloid metaplasia, 2) hemophagocytic syndromes, and 3) hypersplenism. These diseases in humans produce histopathologic changes in the spleen that are similar to those observed in the canine splenic tissue we examined in this study.  (+info)

Neutrophil alkaline phosphatase score in chronic granulocytic leukaemia: effects of splenectomy and antileukaemic drugs. (6/532)

Staining with naphthol AS phosphate and Fast Blue BB salt has been used for the estimation of neutrophil alkaline phosphatase (NAP) scores in patients with chronic granulocytic leukaemia (CGL). The very low scores found at diagnosis rise when the disease is treated, and there is some inverse correlation between the NAP score and the absolute neutrophil count. Patients treated intensively developed high NAP scores. Elective splenectomy performed during the chronic phase of CGL is followed by a pronounced but transient neutrophilia and a concurrent striking rise in the NAP score. Similar changes were observed in patients without CGL who underwent splenectomy. These observations can be explained by assuming that newly formed neutrophils in CGL have a normal content of NAP but are rapidly sequestered in non-circulating extramedullary pools, whereas the circulating neutrophil with a typically low NAP content is a relatively aged cell which has lost enzyme activity. In subjects with or without CGL, removal of the spleen, a major site of such pooling, temporarily permits the circulation of newly formed neutrophils but eventually other organs assume the sequestering functions of the spleen. Thus the aberrations of NAP score seen in CGL might be attributable not to an intrinsic cellular defect but to an exaggeration of the granulocyte storage phenomena which also occur in subjects without CGL.  (+info)

Myeloproliferative disorders. (7/532)

Forty-three operative procedures were performed on a population of 250 patients with myeloproliferative disorders, including polycythemia vera, myeloid metaplasia (MM) and chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). The overall operative mortality was approximately 7% and the incidence of excessive bleeding which could be related to coagulopathy was 5%. Twenty-one patients with MM or CML underwent splenectomy for palliation of symptoms related to the enlarged spleen or hematologic problems. Eighty-four percent of the latter group were improved. Adverse hematologic effects which could be attributed to splenectomy in these patients were confined to two patients who developed marked thrombocytosis. Among the 23 patients with MM, 9 had portal hypertension. Three underwent portacaval shunt and one a splenorenal shunt for bleeding varices. One of the patients died of hepatic necrosis. Estimated hepatic blood flow determinations (EHBF) in 4 patients with portal hypertension demonstrated a marked absolute increase and an increase in the ratio of EHBF/Cardiac Index. Absence of any evidence of intrahepatic or extrahepatic obstruction in these patients and the demonstration that splenectomy relieved portal hypertension defined at surgery in 4 patients, suggests that augmented adhepatic flow contributes to portal hypertension in some cases. The review leads to the conclusions that: 1) Operative procedures in prepared patients with myeloproliferative disorders are not associated with prohibitive mortality and morbidity rates. 2) Splenectomy is indicated for patients with increasing transfusion requirements and symptomatic splenomegaly or hypersplenism and should be performed early in the course of disease. 3) When associated portal hypertension and bleeding varices are present, hemodynamic studies should be carried out to define if splenectomy alone, or a portal systemic decompressive procedure is indicated.  (+info)

Allogeneic peripheral blood cell transplantation for hypereosinophilic syndrome with myelofibrosis. (8/532)

Patients with hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) display a very heterogeneous clinical picture ranging from asymptomatic cases to very aggressive forms. We report a 38-year-old woman with progressive HES who developed severe myelofibrosis and was treated by allogeneic stem cell transplantation, using peripheral blood (PBSCT) instead of bone marrow as the source of progenitor cells, after conditioning with cytoxan and busulphan. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of HES with myelofibrosis treated with PBSCT. The patient remains alive 8 months post-PBSCT, and bone marrow fibrosis has significantly decreased following transplantation. Bone Marrow Transplantation (2000) 25, 217-218.  (+info)

The splenomegaly associated with myelofibrosis and agnogenic myeloid metaplasia should not be considered a manifestation of the fundamental proliferative process, nor should it be considered as necessarily compensatory for reduced marrow haematopoiesis.. In deserving cases splenectomy may cause an improvement in the patients general and haematopoietic status. Removal of the source of functional hypersplenism, causing haemolytic episodes and thrombocytopenia, results in marked amelioration in the clinical condition with reduction in the magnitude and frequency of replacement blood transfusion.. The massive size of the spleen associated with this condition may not only cause local pain and discomfort but may lead to traumatic or spontaneous rupture.. Consideration of two cases studied by the authors indicates that marked clinical improvement may be associated with splenectomy in selected cases of agnogenic myeloid metaplasia.. ...

We found agreement for risk classification was poor when DIPSS and post-PV risk scores were applied to the same post-PV/ET MF patients. Scores were calculated at fixed time interval and thus, the results are not simply representative of a change in clinical status over time. Interestingly, DIPSS was more likely to assign patients to a high-risk category than the post-PV risk assessment score.. This climate of risk prognostication has changed dramatically over the last two decades.. From the Lille4 in 1996, International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS)5 in 2009, Dynamic International Prognostic Scoring System (DIPSS)2 in 2010, DIPSS-plus6 in 2011, to the most recent introduction of Mutation Enhanced International Prognostic Scoring System (MIPSS)7 and the Genetics-based Prognostic Scoring System (GPS)8 in 2014, accurate risk stratification within MF has been a moving target.9 To complicate the issue further, the diagnosis of secondary myelofibrosis such as in post-polycythemia vera (PV) MF and ...

Key words. Myelofibrosis (MF), including primary myelofibrosis (PMF) and MF secondary to essential thrombocythemia (ET) or polycythemia vera (PV), is a chronic Philadelphia chromosome-negative myeloproliferative neoplasm associated with progressive bone marrow fibrosis.1 Many patients with MF experience new or worsening anemia during disease progression. Varying from study to study, 35% to 54% of patients with PMF have been reported to have anemia (i.e., hemoglobin ,10 g/dL) at the time of diagnosis.2-5 Anemia adversely affects overall survival (OS), and is included as a key negative prognostic factor in validated prognostic scoring systems for patients with PMF, which were developed before the introduction of Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor therapy.2,3,5 Ruxolitinib, a JAK1/JAK2 inhibitor, improved OS compared with placebo and best available therapy in patients with intermediate-2 or high-risk MF5 in the phase 3 COntrolled MyeloFibrosis Study With ORal JAK Inhibitor Treatment (COMFORT) ...

This study aimed to identify effective targets for carcinogenesis of primary myelofibrosis (PMF), as well as to screen ideal lead compounds with potential inhibition effect on Janus kinase 2 to contribute to the medication design and development. Gene expression profiles of GSE26049, GSE53482, GSE61629 were obtained from the Gene Expression Omnibus database. The differentially expressed genes were identified, and functional enrichment analyses such as Gene Ontology, protein-protein interaction network etc., were performed step by step. Subsequently, highly-precise computational techniques were conducted to identify potential inhibitors of JAK2. A series of structural biology methods including virtual screening, ADMET (absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and toxicity) prediction, molecule docking, molecular dynamics simulation etc., were implemented to discover novel natural compounds. Results elucidated that PMF patients had abnormal LCN2, JAK2, MMP8, CAMP, DEFA4, LTF, MPO, HBD, STAT4, EBF1
Patients with myelofibrosis resistant or intolerant to Jakafi (ruxolitinib) may have an alternative treatment option with a novel JAK2-selective inhibitor fedratinib, according to the results of clinical study recently published in the medical journal Lancet.1. About Myelofibrosis. Myelofibrosis is a type of blood cancer known as a myeloproliferative neoplasm that is chronic and progressive in nature. It involves the abnormal development and function of bone marrow cells that produce blood cells and leads to the formation of scar tissue in the bone marrow. When the bone marrow becomes scarred it cant make enough blood cells and this can cause anemia, enlargement of the spleen and liver, fatigue, and other problems.. Myelofibrosis can result from a worsening of other bone marrow diseases, such as polycythemia vera and essential thrombocythemia or develop on its own - so called primary myelofibrosis..

MD Anderson News Release 09/15/2010. Life-threatening bone marrow malignancy has no approved therapy. MD Anderson News Release 09/15/10. An oral medication produces significant and lasting relief for patients with myelofibrosis, a debilitating and lethal bone marrow disorder, researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center report in the Sept. 16 New England Journal of Medicine.. Myelofibrosis is caused by the accumulation of malignant bone marrow cells that trigger an inflammatory response, scarring the bone marrow and limiting its ability to produce blood, causing anemia.. The problem with myelofibrosis is the lack of available therapies for patients - there are none approved for this disease today, said principal investigator Srdan Verstovsek, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor in MD Andersons Department of Leukemia. Average life expectancy for people with this disease is 5 to 7 years. Available therapies approved for other diseases provide little response and are mainly ...
FRIDAY, Aug. 16, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Inrebic (fedratinib) capsules have been approved to treat adults with intermediate-2 or high-risk primary or secondary myelofibrosis, making it the second drug approved to treat patients with this disease, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced today.. Approval of Inrebic for patients with intermediate-2 or high-risk primary or secondary (post-polycythemia vera or post-essential thrombocythemia) myelofibrosis was based on clinical trial data from 289 patients randomly assigned to 400 or 500 mg of oral Inrebic daily or placebo. Thirty-six percent of patients (35 of 96) treated with the label-recommended dose of 400 mg of Inrebic had experienced at least a 35 percent reduction in spleen volume from baseline to week 24 as measured by magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomography scan. Thirty-six patients treated with Inrebic had at least a 50 percent reduction in myelofibrosis-related symptoms, including night sweats, itching, abdominal ...
Studies with G6PD and molecular probes indicate that the myeloid leukemias and the chronic myeloproliferative disorders are clonal diseases. The G6PD data indicate that chronic myelogenous leukemia, polycythemia vera and essential thrombocythemia involve stem cells pluripotent for granulocytes, erythrocytes, megakaryocytes and lymphocytes. Agnogenic myeloid metaplasia is also a clonal disease that involves multipotent hematopoietic stem cells. However, myelofibrosis, the predominant clinical manifestation, occurs secondarily and is not a component of the abnormal clonal proliferation. Acute nonlymphocytic leukemia is a clonal disease, but G6PD studies suggest that there are at least two forms of this leukemia. In one type of ANL, the involved stem cells exhibit pluripotent differentiative expression. In another type of ANL, differentiative expression is largely restricted to the granulocytic pathway. The heterogeneity of ANL has both clinical and pathogenetic implications.
Splenomegaly is a common indication of primary myelofibrosis (PMF), post-polycythemia vera myelofibrosis (post-PV MF), and post-essential thrombocythemia myelofibrosis (post-ET MF) thats connected with bothersome symptoms, that have a significant bad impact on sufferers standard of living.

This review discusses current healing choices for splenomegaly connected with principal or supplementary MF and the procedure potential from the JAK inhibitors within this placing. reported the outcomes of a stage II trial with low-dose ...
Idiopathic generalized myelofibrosis with myeloid metaplasia is a disease of unknown etiology in which the clinical and morphologic manifestations vary greatly even during the course of an individual case. The resulting confusion has led to an undue number of synonyms, each of which tends to focus on a single aspect of the disease. Many cases exhibit panhyperplasia of all bone marrow elements including fibroblasts, although eventually the more characteristic picture of fibrosis may predominate. Myeloid metaplasia is a constant and persistent finding, even when the bone marrow is hypercellular. A leukoerythroblastic peripheral blood picture is usually present at some time ...

BM fibrosis in PMF is presumed to be caused by growth factors released from clonal megakaryocytes or platelets that stimulate MSCs to induce BM fibrosis (Groopman, 1980). Here, we demonstrate that clonal neoplastic fibrocytes, which are significantly expanded in patients with PMF, are functionally distinct from normal fibrocytes (perhaps because of constitutive JAK2 signaling) and contribute to the formation of BM fibrosis. Furthermore, SAP (PRM-151) slowed the development of fibrosis and significantly improved survival of NSG mice transplanted with PMF BM cells.. That fibrocytes play a direct role in the induction of BM fibrosis is not unprecedented. Ohishi et al. (2012) found an expanded population of CD45+ cells that produced type I collagen (fibrocytes) in the BM of mice conditionally expressing active parathyroid hormone receptor, results that are reminiscent of our data obtained from the mouse MPL-W515L-induced PMF model. In the parathyroid hormone receptor mice, the numbers of MSCs in BM ...
An acquired somatic mutation, Jak2V617F, was recently discovered in most patients with polycythemia vera (PV), chronic idiopathic myelofibrosis (CIMF), and essential thrombocythemia (ET). To investigate the role of this mutation in vivo, we transplanted bone marrow (BM) transduced with a retrovirus expressing either Jak2 wild-type (wt) or Jak2V617F into lethally irradiated syngeneic recipient mice. Expression of Jak2V617F, but not Jak2wt, resulted in clinicopathologic features that closely resembled PV in humans. These included striking elevation in hemoglobin level/hematocrit, leukocytosis, megakaryocyte hyperplasia, extramedullary hematopoiesis resulting in splenomegaly, and reticulin fibrosis in the bone marrow. Histopathologic and flow cytometric analyses showed an increase in maturing myeloid lineage progenitors, although megakaryocytes showed decreased polyploidization and staining for acetylcholinesterase. In vitro analysis of primary cells showed constitutive activation of Stat5 and cytokine

CancerConnect News: In early analysis from a Phase II clinical trial, the JAK1 inhibitor INCB039110 appears to improve symptoms in patients with myelofibrosis. These findings were presented at the 56th American Hematological Society Annual Meeting and Exposition, December 6-9, 2014, in San Francisco, California.. Myelofibrosis is a type of blood cancer known as a myeloproliferative neoplasm. It involves the abnormal development and function of bone marrow cells that produce blood cells and leads to the formation of scar tissue in the bone marrow. This can cause anemia, enlargement of the spleen and liver, fatigue, and other problems. In some patients with myelofibrosis, the condition progresses to acute myeloid leukemia.. Proteins known as JAK1 and JAK2 may play a role in the development of MPNs, including myelofibrosis, by causing the body to make the wrong number of blood cells. Drugs that suppress JAK1 and JAK2 are used to treat different forms of MPN by reducing the number of abnormal number ...

Main myelofibrosis (PMF) commonly results in extramedullary hematopoiesis (EMH) in the spleen and liver as well as a variety of additional organs. biopsy exposed a hypercellular marrow moderately improved reticulin fibrosis and features consistent with main myelofibrosis. Abdominal imaging showed a normal-size spleen and did not determine any sites of EMH outside of the liver. The analysis of myelofibrosis was therefore made and this case shown predominant tropism to a transplanted freebase liver graft with absence of EMH elsewhere. We would therefore like to emphasize that findings of EMH in subjects with no preexisting hematologic neoplasm should warrant close follow-up and assessment. 1 Introduction Classified like a BCR-ABL bad myeloproliferative neoplasm [1] myelofibrosis is definitely a clonal cell malignancy characterized by progressive bone marrow fibrosis and ineffective erythropoiesis [2]. Extramedullary hematopoiesis is definitely a well-recognized trend of this disease process. ...

We report the final two-year end-of-study results from the first clinical trial investigating combination treatment with ruxolitinib and low-dose pegylated interferon-α2 (PEG-IFNα2). The study included 32 patients with polycythemia vera (PV) and 18 with primary- or secondary myelofibrosis (MF); 46 patients were previously intolerant or refractory to PEG-IFNα2. The primary outcome was efficacy, based on hematological parameters, quality of life measurements, and JAK2 V617F allele burden. We used the 2013 ELN and IWG-MRT response criteria, including response in symptoms, splenomegaly, peripheral blood counts, and bone marrow. Of 32 patients with PV, 10 (31%) achieved remission; 3 (9%) achieved complete remission. Of 18 patients with MF, 8 (44%) achieved remission; 5 (28%) achieved complete remission. The cumulative incidence of peripheral blood count remission was 0.85 and 0.75 for patients with PV and MF, respectively. MPN-SAF total symptom score decreased from 22 (95%CI, 16-29) at baseline to ...
Myeloproliferative diseases were first described by William Dameshek in 1951. In 2008, the World Health Organization established a new classification system and introduced the term myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). Polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET), and primary myelofibrosis (PMF) are the most prevalent MPNs and are characterized by overproduction of leukocytes, erythrocytes, or platelets; development of bone marrow fibrosis; leukemic transformation; and arterial and venous thrombosis. When Dameshek proposed the term myeloproliferative diseases, he also proposed the presence of a then-undiscovered stimulus that drove proliferation. We now understand that mutation of the JAK2 gene, JAK2 V617F, is the most common stimulus, occurring in 95% of patients with PV and 60% of those with ET or PMF. Myeloproliferative neoplasms are relatively rare; are acquired in middle to older age; and are, despite their classification as neoplasms, indolent diseases, with survival measured ...

Due to the rarity of this disease, patients are frequently misdiagnosed as having primary myelofibrosis, the most common form of bone-marrow fibrosis. Distinguishing between both disease entities is essential given the drastic therapeutic and prognostic ...
In this issue of the Hematology, Transfusion and Cell Therapy Journal, Cacemiro et al. evaluated the plasma cytokine profile of 47 patients with Ph-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) [essential thrombocythemia (ET), primary myelofibrosis (PMF), and polycythemia vera (PV)] and of healthy subjects.1 They demonstrated increased levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines in MPN patients and higher levels of interferon (IFN)-γ-induced protein 10 (IP-10) in PMF patients with the JAK2 V617F mutation. They found differences in the cytokine profile among the three MPN disorders, including increased levels of IL-12p70, IL-17A, and RANTES in PMF, showing that MPN, in particular PMF, have altered inflammatory profiles. However, their sample population did not make clinical and prognostic implications of their findings possible.. What is the clinical relevance of the altered cytokine levels in MPN? Are they related to constitutional symptoms, transformation or evolution to fibrosis? Do they have an ...

Polycythemia vera (PV) and essential thrombocythemia (ET) are myeloproliferative neoplasms with variable risk of evolution into post-PV and post-ET myelofibrosis, from now on referred to as secondary myelofibrosis (SMF). No specific tools have been defined for risk stratification in SMF. To develop a prognostic model for predicting survival, we studied 685 JAK2, CALR, and MPL annotated patients with SMF. Median survival of the whole cohort was 9.3 years (95% CI: 8-not reached-NR-). Through penalized Cox regressions we identified negative predictors of survival and according to beta risk coefficients we assigned 2 points to hemoglobin level |11 g/dl, to circulating blasts ⩽3%, and to CALR-unmutated genotype, 1 point to platelet count |150 × 109/l and to constitutional symptoms, and 0.15 points to any year of age. Myelofibrosis Secondary to PV and ET-Prognostic Model (MYSEC-PM) allocated SMF patients into four risk categories with different survival (P|0.0001): low (median survival NR; 133 patients),
Several studies suggest an implication of transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) in the promotion of myelofibrosis associated with hematopoietic malignancies, but the involvement of this cytokine is not fully investigated. To test directly the impact of TGF-beta1 in the pathogenesis of myelofibrosis, bone marrow stem cells from homozygous TGF-beta1 null (TGF-beta1(-/-)) and wild-type (WT) littermates were infected with a retrovirus encoding the murine thrombopoietin (TPO) protein and engrafted into lethally irradiated wild-type hosts for long-term reconstitution. Over the 4 months of follow-up, TPO levels in plasma were markedly elevated in both groups of mice, and animals typically developed a myeloproliferative syndrome characterized by thrombocytosis, leukocytosis, splenomegaly, increased numbers of progenitors in blood, and extramedullary hematopoiesis. Severe fibrosis was observed in spleen and marrow from all the mice engrafted with WT cells. In contrast, none of the mice repopulated with

Ruxolitinib is a targeted agent that inhibits Janus 2 Kinase and is approved for use in Polycythemia Vera and Primary Myelofibrosis. Its mechanism of action involves inhibition of cellular proliferation via the Janus kinase/signal transducer and activator of transcription proteins pathway. Ruxolitinib has different immune modulating effects that result in functional immunosuppression, leading to an increased susceptibility to certain infections. Klebsiella pneumoniae infections, in particular, were common among the reported pathogens contracted by ruxolitinib users. We report a 75-year-old male patient who had recurrent K. pneumoniae urinary tract infections while on ruxolitinib for Polycythemia Vera. This case is reported to add to the literature describing an increased susceptibility of patients to this often-resistant bacteria and to raise awareness about the immune modulating effects of JAK inhibitors.

Myeloproliferative neoplasms are a group of clonal myeloid cell-derived disorders characterized by myeloproliferation without dysplasia, bone marrow hypercellularity, and predisposition to thrombosis, hemorrhage, and bone marrow fibrosis.
In 2016 revised classification of MPN pre-fibrotic primary myelofibrosis was recognized as a separate entity, distinct from essential thrombocythemia.
The classic chronic MPNs are polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia, chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), and primary myelofibrosis. There are about 15/100,000 new cases of MPNs annually. There are more unusual MPNs, the classification of which is subject to periodic modification as we learn more about them.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Perspectives on the impact of JAK-inhibitor therapy upon inflammation-mediated comorbidities in myelofibrosis and related neoplasms. AU - Hasselbalch, Hans C.. PY - 2014/4. Y1 - 2014/4. N2 - Chronic inflammation is suggested to contribute to the Philadelphia- chromosome-negative myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) disease initiation and progression, as well as the development of premature atherosclerosis and may drive the development of other cancers in MPNs, both nonhematologic and hematologic. The MPN population has a substantial comorbidity burden, including cerebral, cardiovascular, pulmonary, abdominal, renal, metabolic, skeletal, autoimmune, and chronic inflammatory diseases. This review describes the comorbidities associated with MPNs and the potential impact of early intervention with anti-inflammatory and/or immunomodulatory agents such as JAK-inhibitors, statins, and IFN-α to inhibit cancer progression and reduce MPN-associated comorbidity impact. Early intervention may ...
Affected dogs usually present with a normocytic, normochromic nonregenerative anemia, neutropenia and thrombocytopenia. Diagnosis requires multiple bone marrow core biopsies and histological examination of other organ tissue samples, confirming the increased presence of fibrosis within bone marrow spaces and increased extramedullary hematopoiesis in other organs such as the liver and spleen. There is no specific treatment for this condition apart from long-term prednisolone, erythropoietin and addressing the underlying cause of this disease. In severely anemic dogs, whole blood transfusions of fresh frozen plasma may be required as a palliative strategy to forestall a demise. Development of new protein kinase inhibitors has shown promise at treating myelofibrosis secondary to lymphoma[13]. ...
In 2005, a mutation located at exon 14 of the Janus Kinase gene on chromosome 9 was discovered in patients with Polycythaenia vera (PV), essential thrombocythaemia (ET) and primary myelofibrosis (PMF). The mutation (JAK2 V617F/G1849T) causes valine to be substituted by phenylalanine at codon 617. As a result the World Health Organisation (WHO) revised the diagnostic criteria of myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) in 2008 to include the detection of the JAK2 V617F mutation as a major diagnostic criterion for PV, ET and PMF. Molecular assays with high sensitivity and specificity should be offered by diagnostic laboratories for this purpose. To comply with these requirements, commercial and in-house assays that offer different sensitivity and specificity levels have been developed. In addition to the performance characteristics of diagnostic assays used to detect the JAK2 V617F mutation, associated cost remains an important factor to consider when selecting the assay that is best suited to a ...
8p11 myeloproliferative syndrome (EMS) is a very rare clinicopathological entity which is characterized by the appearance of a myeloproliferative neoplasm in the bone marrow, peripheral lymphadenopathy, usually caused by T or B lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia, and a reciprocal translocation involving chromosome 8p11. Herein we describe a 22-year-old male patient with unusual clinical presentation of EMS. Namely, he initially presented with prolonged epistaxis. Complete blood count showed elevated hemoglobin (17.7g/dl), thrombocytopenia (98x109/l) and leukocytosis (57x109/l). Bone marrow aspirate and biopsy findings corresponded with the presence of a myeloproliferative neoplasm while cytogenetic analysis revealed t(8;13)(p11q12). After that ZMYM2-FGFR1 in-frame fusion was confirmed at the molecular level. Immediately after establishing the diagnosis of a myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) generalized lymphadenopathy was developed. Histopathologic examination of lymph node sample confirmed the ...
This is not yet a true case study but for people following my posts on my website, I wanted to write about the great healing potential this remedy, Carcinosinum (58T) seems to have.. The basic Carcinosinum that we use is a remedy prepared from a single tumour - a breast tumour. This is the remedy of which Foubister made a detailed proving. Tinus Smits from Netherlands has used Carcinosinum (15T) with good results, better than those got from our regular single tumour Carcinosinum.. On a forum post at hpathy.com, there was a detailed discussion on the use of Carcinosinum (58T) http://forum.hpathy.com/forum/students-corner/carcinosinum/#p8599. Having my interest triggered, I ordered Carcinosinum (58T) in two potencies, 200c and 1M from Remedia Homoeopathic Pharmacy, in Austria.. I got the chance to use it after a few months of procuring it in a case of thrombocytosis and bone marrow fibrosis (that was secondary to the chemotherapeutic treatment for the thrombocytosis).. His allopathic treatment ...

cells. Given alone the PD-1 antibody increased GVL but did not improve survival of recipients challenged with A20 cells because of increased deaths from aGVHD. Adding ruxolitinib decreased levels of effector T cells and related cytokines. Tbx21- T cells had higher PD-1 levels compared with Tbx21+ T cells. Ruxolitinib increased PD-1 levels on donor T cells by suppressing Tbx21 expression. Ruxolitinib increased apoptosis of T cells which was reversed by the PD-1 antibody. PD-1 antibody preserved expression of granzyme B and cytotoxicity of T cells which were decreased by ruxolitinib. The net result of combined therapy was increased GVL, no increase in aGVHD and increased survival. The combined therapy improved survival of recipients challenged by A20 cells which expressed high level of PD-L1, but not EL4 cells which do not express PD-L1. ...
