Prospective, Non-Interventional Study of Disease Progression and Treatment of Patients with Polycythemia Vera in United States Academic or Community Clinical Practices (REVEAL)


Brief description of study

Prospective, Non-Interventional Study of Disease Progression and Treatment of Patients with Polycythemia Vera in United States Academic or Community Clinical Practices (REVEAL)

Detailed Study Description

You are being asked to participate in this study because you have been diagnosed with Polycythemia Vera (PV) and are being actively managed for your PV. PV is a rare blood disease in which your body makes too many red blood cells. The extra red blood cells make your blood thicker than normal. As a result, blood clots can form more easily. These clots can block blood flow through your arteries and veins, which can cause a heart attack or stroke. Thicker blood also doesn't flow as quickly to your body as normal blood. Slowed blood flow prevents your organs from getting enough oxygen, which can cause serious problems, such as angina (chest pain or discomfort) and heart failure.
