This book focuses on three of the main categories of myeloproliferative neoplasm: polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia, and primary myelofibrosis. Relevant laboratory and clinical advances are comprehensively covered, and great emphasis is placed on the practical issues that challenge physicians in their daily practice. The main topics considered thus include contemporary diagnostic  approaches, the value and limitations of mutation screening for diagnostic and  prognostic purposes, risk stratification in terms of both survival and other  disease complications such as leukemic transformation and thrombosis, and  modern therapeutic strategies, including conventional drugs, allogeneic stem cell  transplantation, and experimental drugs still under study. The reader will find Critical Concepts and Management Recommendations in Myeloproliferative Neoplasms to be an invaluable and up-to-date source of information from leading authorities in the field.

From the Back Cover:

Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are clonal stem cell diseases that, under the World Health Organization classification, are subcategorized into eight clinicopathologic entities. The current book focuses on three of these categories: polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia, and primary myelofibrosis. A number of important questions regarding the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of these diseases have arisen following the discovery of the JAK2 V617F mutation in the majority of patients with bcr/abl-negative MPNs.

 

This book comprises evidence-based reviews and expert consensus results. It offers comprehensive coverage of relevant laboratory and clinical advances and places great emphasis on the practical issues that challenge physicians in their daily practice.

Practical recommendations are provided for the optimization and standardization of management of all three types of myeloproliferative neoplasm. Risk stratification, treatment goals, and first- and second-line therapies are discussed in detail, and other relevant diagnostic and research issues are also addressed. The reader will find Critical Concepts and Management Recommendations in Myeloproliferative Neoplasms to be an invaluable and up-to-date source of information from leading authorities in the field.
