Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorders

Common Name(s)

Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorders

Chronic myeloproliferative disorders are a group of slow-growing blood cancers in which the bone marrow makes too many abnormal red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets, which accumulate in the blood. The type of myeloproliferative disorder is based on whether too many red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets are being made. Sometimes the body will make too many of more than one type of blood cell, but usually one type of blood cell is affected more than the others are.

There are 6 types of chronic myeloproliferative disorders: chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), polycythemia vera, primary myelofibrosis (also called chronic idiopathic myelofibrosis), essential thrombocythemia, chronic neutrophilic leukemia, and chronic eosinophilic leukemia. Chronic myeloproliferative disorders sometimes become acute leukemia, in which too many abnormal white blood cells are made.

Splanchnic vein thrombosis, the onset manifestation in JAK positive Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorders Neoplasms.
 

Author(s): A M Vladareanu, V Popov, H Bumbea, M Onisai, A Ilea, C Dobrea, M Miulescu

Journal: J Med Life. ;4(1):97-101.

 

Patients with Myeloproliferative Neoplasms-(MPN) have a high risk of thrombotic complications. Portal vein thrombosis is a severe complication, which in many cases, appears at the onset of the disease; the risk factors are related to the presence of qualitatively altered thrombocytes ...

Journal: Indian J. Med. Res.. 2010 Oct;132():423-7.

 

The Janus-associated Kinase-2 mutation JAK2 V617F in chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMPDs) has been described as a frequent genetic event in majority of patients with polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET) and idiopathic myelofibrosis (IMF). Its frequency varies ...

Sex differences in the JAK2 V617F allele burden in chronic myeloproliferative disorders.
 

Author(s): Brady L Stein, Donna M Williams, Nae-Yuh Wang, Ophelia Rogers, Mary Ann Isaacs, Naveen Pemmaraju, Jerry L Spivak, Alison R Moliterno

Journal: Haematologica. 2010 Jul;95(7):1090-7.

 

The JAK2(V617F) allele burden is a variable measure, determined by the frequency of mitotic recombination events and the expansion of JAK2(V617F) clones. Since variability in the JAK2(V617F) allele burden is partly responsible for the distinct phenotypes seen in the myeloproliferative ...

Author(s): Kenneth Kaushansky

Journal: Best Pract Res Clin Haematol. 2007 Mar;20(1):5-12.

 

In 1951, William Dameshek speculated on the common origin of the chronic myeloproliferative disorders--polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET), chronic idiopathic myelofibrosis (IMF), and chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). Subsequent work suggested that all arose from ...
