Dr. Ruben Mesa describes various tools used to better predict disease behavior, specifically symptoms, among polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET) and myelofibrosis. Mesa lays out the overall survival rates based on data collected and what we’ve learned. Dr. Jorge Cortes discusses the scores or “median survival” and how they are used to calculate statistics for survival. Both help us understand the efficacy and limitations of these tools.
