Tissue Banking Study - Polycythemia Vera or Essential Thrombocythemia (PV & ET) Patients
The purpose of the study is to isolate and characterize stem cells of patients with Polycythemia Vera (PV) and Essential Thrombocythemia (ET) to find out why these cells are not working the way they should be and why they seem to be sensitive to regulatory factors in the blood, such as clotting.

- Stem cell function [ Time Frame: at one time study visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Assess the effects of RG7112 on MPN HSC/HPC p53 levels and study how it affects MPN stem cell function.
- CD34+ cells assays [ Time Frame: at one time study visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Assess the effects of a combination of low doses of IFNα and RG7112 on MPN HSC/HPC. After treatment with RG7112 and IFNα at the various doses, p53, MDM2, MDMX, phosphor-p38, and phosphor-STAT1 levels in MPN CD34+ cells will be measured using monoclonal antibody staining and flow cytometric and immunofluorescence analyses.
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
CD34+ cells isolated from the peripheral blood Splenic CD34+ cells
