Positive Correlation seen between JAK2V617F allele burden and thrombotic mechanisms activation in Polycythemia Vera and Essential Thrombocythemia patients

JAK2V617F allele burden is associated with thrombotic mechanisms activation in patients with Polycythemia Vera and Essential Thrombocythemia Abstract The clinical courses of polycythemia vera (PV) and essential thrombocythemia (ET) are characterized by thrombohemorrhagic diathesis. Several groups have suggested an association between JAK2V617F mutation and thrombosis. We hypothesized a relationship between JAK2V617F allele burden, cellular activation […]

JAK2 p.V617F detection and allele burden measurement in peripheral blood and bone marrow aspirates in patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms

Key points The sensitivity and specificity of detecting the JAK2 p.V617F mutation in peripheral blood are both 100% compared to bone marrow. The JAK2 p.V617F allele burden measured in peripheral blood is equivalent to that in bone marrow aspirate (R2=0.991; P<0.0001). See the Abstract Here
