MPN specialist haematologists, the USA’s Ayalew Tefferi and Italy’s Tiziano Barbui have just released a very extensive overview of polycythemia vera.
The overview is detailed and includes:
- an important update that recognises interferon as a first line treatment option along with hydroxyurea, as well as much discussion of the latest research into treatment options,
- advice on pregnancy management in PV patients,
- a detailed explanation of the genetic landscape and potential implications,
- discussion of research on life expectancy,
- and much more.
The article appears in the American Journal of Hematology and is open sourced and can be accessed HERE.
