About this book

This book focuses on three of the main categories of myeloproliferative neoplasm: polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia, and primary myelofibrosis. Relevant laboratory and clinical advances are comprehensively covered, and great emphasis is placed on the practical issues that challenge physicians in their daily practice. The main topics considered thus include contemporary diagnostic  approaches, the value and limitations of mutation screening for diagnostic and  prognostic purposes, risk stratification in terms of both survival and other  disease complications such as leukemic transformation and thrombosis, and  modern therapeutic strategies, including conventional drugs, allogeneic stem cell  transplantation, and experimental drugs still under study. The reader will find Critical Concepts and Management Recommendations in Myeloproliferative Neoplasms to be an invaluable and up-to-date source of information from leading authorities in the field.

About the authors

The discovery of the JAK2 V617F mutation in the majority of patients with bcr/abl-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms has stimulated a number of questions regarding the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia, and primary myelofibrosis. This book provides evidence-based reviews and expert consensus results concerning the key clinical issues for patient management. Practical recommendations are provided for the optimization and standardization of management of all three types of myeloproliferative neoplasm. Risk stratification, treatment goals, and first- and second-line therapies are discussed in detail, and other relevant diagnostic and research issues are also addressed. The reader will find Critical Concepts and Management Recommendations in Myeloproliferative Neoplasms to be an invaluable and up-to-date source of information from leading authorities in the field.
