Myelofibrosis is a bone marrow cancer that affects the production of blood cells in the body and often leads to scarring of the bone marrow and anemia. Myelofibrosis belongs to a group of chronic blood disorders called Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPN). Some cases of myelofibrosis result from having other MPNs, which is called Secondary Myelofibrosis (SMF). When there are no prior MPNs to a myelofibrosis diagnosis, it is referred to as Primary Myelofibrosis (PMF).
Oncology clinical trials research new ways to improve the treatment of cancer patients of all stages and subtypes. For rare diseases like myelofibrosis, patient enrollment is especially important due to the lack of approved treatments currently available. By enrolling in oncology clinical trials, patients get early access to new and improved drugs to treat their cancer.
Massive Bio’s OCTCC can match patients with myelofibrosis and other cancer types to clinical trials using the AI-powered platform based on more than 100 data points including:
- Specific type of cancer
- Biomarker status
- Stage of disease
