Assessing Feasibility of Thromboprophylaxis With Apixaban in JAK2-positive Myeloproliferative Neoplasm Patients

Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are blood disorders that occur when the body makes too many white or red blood cells, or platelets. This overproduction of blood cells in the bone marrow can create problems for blood flow and lead to various symptoms. One of the major problems is the formation of blood clots. These may form in the veins of a patient's legs or arms where they cause leg or arm pain, swelling or difficulty walking. These clots may travel to the lung and then cause chest pain, shortness of breath and sometimes death. Blood clots can also lead to poor or no blood flow to one's heart, brain, or other organs, causing damages that cannot be easily or ever repaired, such as stroke or heart attack. Patients diagnosed with certain types of MPN are associated with a higher risk of developing blood clots and related complications. For this reason, MPN patients are usually treated with low-dose aspirin, a common drug used for blood clot prevention, on long-term basis to prevent the formation of blood clots and other complications. However, recent studies also show that the risk of blood clots remains elevated in MPN patients treated with aspirin, and there may not be improvement or reduction in fatal or other events that are associated with blood clots. In addition, since this medical condition is rare, so there's a lack of studies done with high quality results to help physicians decide the best treatment plan for these patients. The study drug, apixaban, is a new type of orally-taken blood thinner that has been shown to be effective and safe for prevention and treatment of blood clots in various patient populations. The investigators will evaluate whether apixaban is safer and/or better at preventing blood clots and other complications in MPN patients compared to aspirin.

A Study of Momelotinib Versus Danazol in Symptomatic and Anemic Myelofibrosis Patients (MOMENTUM)

MOMENTUM is a randomized, double-blind, active control Phase 3 trial intended to confirm the differentiated clinical benefits of the investigational drug momelotinib (MMB) versus danazol (DAN) in symptomatic and anemic subjects who have previously received an approved Janus kinase inhibitor (JAKi) therapy for myelofibrosis (MF). The purpose of this clinical study is to compare the effectiveness and safety of MMB to DAN in treating and reducing: 1) disease related symptoms, 2) the need for blood transfusions and 3) splenomegaly, in adults with primary MF, post-polycythemia vera MF or post-essential thrombocythemia MF. The study is planned in countries including, but not limited to: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, UK, and US. Subjects must be symptomatic with a MFSAF v4.0 Total Symptom Score of ≥ 10 at screening, and be anemic with Hgb < 10 g/dL. For subjects with ongoing JAKi therapy at screening, JAKi therapy must be tapered over a period of at least 1 week, followed by a 2-week non-treatment washout interval prior to randomization. Subjects will be randomized 2:1 to orally self-administer blinded treatment: MMB plus placebo or DAN plus placebo. Subjects randomized to receive MMB who complete the randomized treatment period to the end of Week 24 may continue to receive MMB in the open-label extended treatment period to the end of Week 204 (a total period of treatment of approximately 4 years) if the subject tolerates and continues to benefit from MMB. Subjects randomized to receive DAN may cross-over to MMB open-label treatment in the following circumstances: at the end of Week 24 if they complete the randomized treatment period; or at the end of Week 24 if they discontinue treatment with DAN but continue study assessments and do not receive prohibited medications including alternative active anti-MF therapy; or at any time during the randomized treatment period if they meet the protocol-defined criteria for radiographically-confirmed symptomatic splenic progression. Subjects randomized to receive DAN who are receiving clinical benefit at the end of Week 24 may choose to continue DAN therapy up to Week 48. The comparator treatment, DAN, is an approved medication in the US and in some other countries and is recommended by national guidelines as a treatment for anemia in MF.
