Vascular events in essential thrombocythemia (ET) are associated with advanced age and thrombosis history. Recent information suggests additional effect from the presence of specific mutations.


To examine the influence of age and thrombosis history, on the reported association between mutational status and thrombosis-free survival in ET.


Analysis was performed using a Mayo Clinic cohort of 300 ET patients and key findings re-analyzed by including additional 102 Italian patients.


Among 300 Mayo patients with ET (median age 55 years; 60% females), mutational frequencies were 53% JAK2, 32% CALR, 3% MPL and 12% JAK2, CALR and MPL wild type. 106 (35%) patients experienced arterial (n=75) or venous (n=43) events, before (n=55) or after (n=71) diagnosis. In univariate analysis, compared to JAK2-mutated cases, JAK2, CALR and MPL wild type (HR 0.31, 95% CI 0.11-0.86) and CALR-mutated (0.53, 95% CI 0.30-0.92) patients displayed better thrombosis-free survival. JAK2, CALR and MPL wild type remained significant (p=0.03; HR 0.32, 95% CI 0.11-0.9) during multivariable analysis that included age (p=0.01) and thrombosis history (p=0.0006); a favorable impact from CALR mutations was of borderline significance (p=0.1; HR 0.62, 95% CI 0.35-1.1), but became significant (p=0.02) when multivariable analysis including thrombosis history (p=0.02) was performed on patients younger than 60 years of age.


The favorable impact of mutational status on thrombosis-free survival in ET might be most evident for JAK2, CALR and MPL wild type patients whereas the favorable effect from CALR mutations might be confined to young patients. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
