General Updates | Current unmet needs in PV & ET

Ronald Hoffman, MD, PhD, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, outlines the most pressing unmet needs in patients with polycythemia vera (PV) and essential thrombocythemia (ET), which include better maintenance of hematocrit levels in PV, and improving our understanding of the biology of thrombosis in patients with ET to prevent the occurrence of thrombotic episodes and prevent progression to myelofibrosis (MF) and myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN)-blast phase (BP).
