REVEAL study: What have been the most common causes of mortality for patients with PV?

During the 62nd American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition, the MPN Hub spoke to Brady L. Stein, Northwestern University, Evanston, US, about the most common causes of mortality for patients with polycythemia vera (PV).

REVEAL study: What have been the most common causes of mortality for patients with PV?

Stein gives an overview of the key findings from the REVEAL study: patients who died during the study were older and categorized as high-risk (aged ≥ 60 years and/or history of thrombosis) at diagnosis compared with patients who were alive. The most common causes of death included: vascular complications, hematological transformations, and respiratory failure.
