Jan 4, 2013 · Myelofibrosis w/ JAK2 mutation in Blood Cancers & Disorders

I have been diagnosed with myelo- fibrosis about seven years ago. Before that it was a myelo prolific disorder. High white count which I still have. Hydroxyurea was prescribed to control the severe itching after a shower. I have participated in clinical trials at U OF MICH including the drug I am now using. JAKFI can reduce the size of your spleen along with other benifits. Myelo-Fibrosis is not curable. The trick is to slow it’s progression. I strongly urge you to talk to your doctor. You can live a long time with this disorder with proper care and treatment. Call or e-mail the Incyte Corporation for explanatory manuals.
