Myeloproliferative Disorders: Biology and Management by Richard T. Silver, Ayalew Tefferi

By Richard T. Silver, Ayalew Tefferi

With the new discovery of JAK2 mutations in myeloproliferative issues, clinical technological know-how has taken a progressive stride ahead towards knowing the pathogenesis of those ailments. This new development interprets not just to a extra quick and trustworthy prognosis, but in addition permits groundbreaking study into the advance of latest therapeutics. Written in an easy-to-follow textual content myeloproliferative problems gives the practising clinician a unmarried resource solution to type, prognosis, administration, and up to date advances during this disease.

Steensma DP, McClure RF, Karp JE, et al. JAK2 V617F is a rare finding in de novo acute myeloid leukemia, but STAT3 activation is common and remains unexplained.

In this context, the overt fibrotic (classical) stage, in which extramedullary hematopoiesis, splenomegaly associated with BM collagen fibrosis, and variable osteosclerosis may be present, that is, agnogenic myeloid metaplasia (AMM) or myelofibrosis with myeloid metaplasia (MMM) (64–67,70), is now regarded as an advanced stage that has evolved from an initial hypercellular-prefibrotic or prodromal phase. Recently, an international working group on myelofibrosis research and treatment has recognized this important issue and proposed the term chronic primary myelofibrosis (PMF) and clearly discriminated this condition from myelofibrosis developing in the setting of PV or ET (73).

4%, respectively (Table 9). Overall observed and age-adjusted relative survival rates are shown in Figure 3. It seems reasonable to assume that the wellknown heterogeneity of survival in ET patients classified according to the PVSG (42) is related to the presence of disease heterogeneity in these cases, with only a proportion of them representing true ET (35,39). Thus, only by scrupulously following the WHO guidelines (54) can the initial stages of myelofibrosis be definitely excluded. These findings have to be emphasized particularly in regard to therapeutic modalities and risk of leukemic transformation, since significant different patterns of disease progression have to be expected (110).
