Further study details as provided by Teva Pharmaceutical Industries:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine whether a specific reduction in the JAK2 V617F allele has been indicated in this study. [ Time Frame: 18 weeks + ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • - improvements in hemoglobin values, neutrophil count, and platelet count. - reduction in dose of hydroxyurea - reduction in splenic enlargement - rate of phlebotomy [ Time Frame: 18 weeks + ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Primary Completion Date: October 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: lestaurtinib Drug: lestaurtinib
60 mg bid - 120 mg bid for an 18 weeks (126 days) treatment duration

Detailed Description:

This is an 18-week open-label, multicenter study to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of CEP-701 (lestaurtinib) treatment at a dosage of 80 mg bid for 18 weeks (126 days) in patients with Polycythemia Vera (PV) who have abnormal baseline neutrophil counts or require hydroxyurea therapy and patients with Essential Thrombocytosis (ET) who require hydroxyurea therapy for disease control.
