Heme Themes: Transplant timing for myelofibrosis in the era of JAK2 inhibitors




ALEXANDRIA, VA. – How are mutation analysis gene panels affecting risk stratification and decision making regarding stem cell transplants in myelofibrosis patients? How are the results of the Dynamic International Prognostic Scoring System (DIPSS) and performance status improvements seen with JAK2 inhibitors influencing who is a candidate for transplant and the timing of transplants?

Watch the conversation between Dr. Vikas Gupta of the leukemia and bone marrow transplant programs at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Toronto, and associate professor of medicine at the University of Toronto, and Dr. Rami S. Komrokji of the Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa, Fla., as they discuss their individual approaches that consider patient wishes and goals, type of donor, and disease risk in their decisions to perform stem cell transplants upfront or to delay them until after JAK2 inhibitor therapy.
