Cytokine pathway variants modulate platelet production: IFNA16 is a thrombocytosis susceptibility locus in humans.

Blood Adv 2022 Apr 5. Epub 2022 Apr 5.

Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York, United States.

Inflammatory stimuli have divergent effects on peripheral platelet counts, although the mechanisms of thrombocytopenic and thrombocytotic responses remain poorly understood. A candidate gene approach targeting 326 polymorphic genes enriched in thrombopoietic and cytokine signaling pathways was applied to identify single nucleotide variants (SNVs) implicated in enhanced platelet responses in cohorts with reactive (RT) or essential (myeloproliferative neoplasm [MPN]) thrombocytosis (ET). Cytokine profiles incorporating a 15-member subset, pathway topology, and functional interactive networks were distinct between ET and RT, consistent with distinct regulatory pathways of exaggerated thrombopoiesis.

Role of JAK inhibitors in myeloproliferative neoplasms: current point of view and perspectives.

Int J Hematol 2022 May 29;115(5):626-644. Epub 2022 Mar 29.

Department of Experimental and Clinical Medicine, University of Florence, CRIMM, Center of Research and Innovation of Myeloproliferative Neoplasms, Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria Careggi, Largo Brambilla, 3 pad 27B, 50134, Florence, Italy.

Classic Philadelphia-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) include polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET), and myelofibrosis (MF), classified as primary (PMF), or secondary to PV or ET. All MPN, regardless of the underlying driver mutation in JAK2/CALR/MPL, are invariably associated with dysregulation of JAK/STAT pathway. The discovery of JAK2V617F point mutation prompted the development of small molecules inhibitors of JAK tyrosine kinases (JAK inhibitors-JAKi). Read More
