In regards to your question #3, I have yet to find anywhere that has a use for the blood drawn from phlebotomies when the blood contains these mutations. Even the places that extract the plasma from blood do not allow people with polycythemia vera to donate (or at least not the ones where I have tried.)

Thanks. I think I would have been surprised a little if they did. However, I am from that "waste not, want not" generation so I had to ask.
