Study Description

Brief Summary

This phase II trial studies the long-term side effects of ruxolitinib in treating patients with myelofibrosis. Collecting data about the long-term safety and tolerability of ruxolitinib may better help future patients with myelofibrosis.

Condition or Disease Intervention/Treatment Phase
Phase 2

Detailed Description

  1. To collect long term safety and tolerability data in patients with myelofibrosis previously treated with ruxolitinib on protocol 2007-0169.

Patients continue to receive ruxolitinib orally (PO) once daily (QD) or twice daily (BID). Cycles repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients undergo follow-up assessment for safety over 10 minutes every 3 cycles.

    Primary Outcome Measures

    1. Incidence of adverse events [Up to 3 years]

      Safety data of the patients will be summarized using descriptive statistics such as mean, standard deviation, median and range. Will follow standard reporting guidelines for adverse events. Safety data will be summarized by category, severity and frequency.
