Yale Cancer Center investigators show recommended, but underused treatment for rare blood cancer saves lives
Yale Cancer Center

U.S. and European guidelines on treating Polycythemia Vera (PV), a potentially deadly blood cancer, call for two treatments for patients with high-risk disease: therapeutic phlebotomy and cytoreductive therapy with a drug called hydroxyurea (HU). HU is the most commonly used option, but evidence for HU treatment is limited and both treatments are underused. Now, researchers at Yale Cancer Center have documented reduced risk of death and incidence of blood clots in patients receiving those therapies.
