Recruitment Status : Active, not recruiting
First Posted : October 17, 2014
Last Update Posted : March 23, 2018
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if pracinostat, when given in combination with ruxolitinib, can help to control myelofibrosis (MF). The safety of this drug combination will also be studied.
This is an investigational study. Pracinostat is not FDA-approved or commercially available. It is currently being used for research purposes only. Ruxolitinib is FDA-approved and commercially available to treat MF.
The study doctor can explain how the study drugs are designed to work.
Up to 25 participants will be enrolled in this study. All will take part at MD Anderson.

Experimental: Ruxolitinib + Pracinostat
Ruxolitinib starting dose 15 mg orally twice/day in 28-day cycle (dose assigned based on platelet count, if low platelet count gradual up-titration from a starting dose of 5 mg) - given alone for first 3 months, then Pracinostat added at starting dose 60 mg orally once/day for 3 alternating days every 3 weeks starting Day 1 of Cycle 4.
Dose of Ruxolitinib may be increased or decreased prior to initiation of Pracinostat. Quality of Life Questionnaire.
Ruxolitinib taken by mouth 2 times each day in a 28-day cycle. Patients receive Ruxolitinib alone for first 3 months, and then Pracinostat added. Starting dose of Ruxolitinib based on patients' platelet count. Dose of Ruxolitinib may be increased or decreased at discretion of treating physician prior to initiation of Pracinostat.
Starting dose of Pracinostat 60 mg by mouth 1 time each day for 3 alternating days every 3 weeks starting on Day 1 of Cycle 4.
Questionnaire regarding quality of life completed at baseline, within 3 days before Day 1 of Cycles 1 - 6, and then every 3 cycles after that.
Other Name: Survey
- Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Objective response rate (ORR), defined as a clinical improvement (CI), partial remission (PR), and complete remission (CR) according to the International Working Group (IWG) Criteria.
- Toxicity of Combination of Ruxolitinib with Pracinostat [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Toxicity defined as Grade 3-4 clinically relevant non-hematologic toxicity or a serious adverse event that is at least possibly related to the study drug (Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events CTCAE version 4.0).
