MPN Clinical Trials
Clinical trials are an important step in the process of discovering new treatments for MPNs. The decision to participate in a clinical trial is one you should carefully consider. It is important to discuss clinical trial participation with your family and your physician. We've compiled a FAQ to assist patients who are considering participating in a clinical trial
The MPN Research Foundation has complied a list of trials, some of which are currently recruiting patients:
If you are a company or investigator who is running a trial and you need to make a change to the listing for your trial contact our office at 312-683-7243 or by sending an email.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) provides information about clinical trials at www.clinicaltrials.gov. Since the database is a repository of trials for all diseases, we recommend you obtain MPN-specific trial information by typing the specific disease (eg. polycythemia vera) in the Search Clinical Trials box.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) provides information on clinical trials for all cancers from around the world at www.cancer.gov/clinicaltrials/search. We recommend you obtain MPN-specific trial information by selecting “myeloproliferative disorders” in the Type of Cancer box. In the Subtype of Cancer box, select the specific MPN (e.g. essential thrombocythemia).
