MPN Updates from ASCO 2016

This year's American Society of Clinical Oncology meeting is not usually where much MPN-relevant science news gets posted. However, with quite a few ongoing clinical trials, including several in Phase 3, there are a few updates that people with PV, ET and MF should know about. We've compiled them below for your convenience:
