Summary

This was a randomized, double-blind study comparing the efficacy and safety of ruxolitinib (INCB018424) tablets to matching placebo tablets in patients diagnosed with Myelofibrosis (either Primary Myelofibrosis (PMF) or Post-Polycythemia Vera Myelofibrosis (PPV-MF) or Post-Essential Thrombocythemia Myelofibrosis (PET-MF).

Arm
(Experimental)
Participants received ruxolitinib orally twice a day. The starting dose was determined based on Baseline platelet count. Patients with Baseline platelet count > 200,000/μL began a dose regimen of 20 mg twice daily. Patients with Baseline platelet count of 100,000/μL to 200,000/μL (inclusive) began a dose regimen of 15 mg twice daily. The dose was adjusted by the Investigator based on efficacy and safety to a maximum of 25 mg twice daily. Patients receiving benefit could continue treatment until the later of marketing approval or when the last randomized patient remaining in the study had completed Week 144 (36 months).
ruxolitinib INCB018424
Ruxolitinib phosphate tablets 5 mg administered as oral doses.
(Placebo Comparator)
Placebo tablets matching ruxolitinib were administered orally twice a day at a starting dose based on Baseline platelet count. Doses were titrated using the same guidelines as for active drug. Patients meeting certain protocol requirements detailed below were given the opportunity to cross over to ruxolitinib treatment.
ruxolitinib INCB018424
Ruxolitinib phosphate tablets 5 mg administered as oral doses.
placebo
Matching placebo tablets were administered as oral doses in the same manner as active drug.

Primary Outcomes

Measure
Number of Participants Achieving ≥ 35% Reduction in Spleen Volume From Baseline to Week 24
time frame: Baseline and Week 24

Secondary Outcomes

Measure
Maintenance of a ≥ 35% Reduction From Baseline in Spleen Volume Among Patients Initially Randomized to Receive Ruxolitinib
time frame: Baseline Visit and every 12 weeks until the data cut-off date (up to 14 months).
Duration of Maintenance of a ≥ 35% Reduction From Baseline in Spleen Volume Among Patients Initially Randomized to Receive Ruxolitinib
time frame: Baseline Visit and every 12 weeks until the data cut-off date (up to 14 months).
Number of Participants With a ≥ 50% Reduction in Total Symptom Score From Baseline to Week 24
time frame: Baseline and Week 24. Baseline total score was the average of the daily total scores for the last 7 days prior to randomization. The Week 24 total score was the average of daily total scores from the 28 days prior to the Week 24 visit.
Change From Baseline to Week 24 in Total Symptom Score
time frame: Baseline and Week 24. Baseline total score was the average of the daily total scores for the last 7 days prior to randomization. The Week 24 total score was the average of daily total scores from the 28 days prior to the Week 24 visit.
Overall Survival
time frame: From randomization to the data cut-off date (up to 14 months).
Overall Survival Time
time frame: From randomization to the data cut-off date (up to 14 months).
Overall Survival - Extended Data
time frame: From randomization to 4 months after the data cut-off date (up to 18 months).
Overall Survival Time - Extended Data
time frame: From randomization to 4 months after the data cut-off date (up to 18 months).
Overall Survival at Week 144
time frame: Week 144
Overall Survival Time at Week 144
time frame: Week 144

Additional Information

Official title A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study of the JAK Inhibitor INCB018424 Tablets Administered Orally to Subjects With Primary Myelofibrosis, Post-Polycythemia Vera Myelofibrosis or Post-Essential Thrombocythemia Myelofibrosis
Description Patients with spleen growth of greater than 25% based on an increase in spleen volume from Baseline were eligible for early unblinding, and for patients on placebo, cross over to ruxolitinib prior to the primary study endpoint being reached. If this spleen growth occurred before Week 24, it must have been accompanied by specific worsening of symptoms, based on worsening early satiety accompanied by weight loss or worsening pain requiring daily narcotic use. After Week 24, asymptomatic spleen growth alone was sufficient for early unblinding and potential cross over. Patients found to have been randomized to ruxolitinib after early unblinding prior to Week 24 were discontinued. When half of the patients remaining in the study completed the Week 36 visit and all patients enrolled completed Week 24 or discontinued, the database was frozen and the primary analysis was conducted. Once this was complete, all patients were unblinded and patients who had been randomized to placebo were given the opportunity to cross over to ruxolitinib treatment, provided hematology laboratory parameters were adequate; Patients receiving benefit could continue treatment until the later of marketing approval or when the last randomized patient remaining in the study had completed Week 144 (36 months).
