Experimental: All patients
All patients will receive ruxolitinib at a starting dose of 10 mg twice daily which could be titrated to most appropriate dose. Dose was not to exceed 25 mg bid nor be less than 5 mg once a day
supplied as 5 mg, 10 mg and 20 mg tablets to be taken orally
- Number of Participants With Adverse Events - All Grades [ Time Frame: Baseline up to approximately 26 months ]Summary of adverse events (all grades).
- Change From Baseline in Hematocrit Levels at All Visits [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 26 months ]Change in hematocrit levels from Baseline to each visit were measured
- Change From Baseline in Spleen Length [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 26 months ]Change in spleen length from Baseline to each visit
- Change From Baseline in Myeloproliferative Neoplasm Symptom Assessment Form Total Symptom Score (MPN-SAF TSS) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 26 months ]
The MPN-SAF (Appendix 6) was a disease specific questionnaire comprised of 10 items that measures fatigue related to MPN disease and the severity of nine of the most prevalent associated symptoms including: early satiety, abdominal discomfort, inactivity, concentration, night sweats, itching, bone pain, fever and weight loss. There were three recall periods used in this questionnaire, which were 24 hours for fatigue, the past week for symptoms of early satiety, abdominal discomfort, inactivity, concentration, night sweats, itching, bone pain and fever, and the past 6 months for weight loss, Each item was scored on a scale ranging from 0 (no fatigue/absent) to 10 (As bad as you can imagine/worst imaginable). The MPN-SAF TSS was computed as the average of the observed items multiplied by 10 to achieve a 0-to-100 scale.
The MPN-SAF TSS thus had a possible score range of 0 to 100.
