This is a long term safety study for patients that have been treated with either ruxolitinib or a combination of ruxolitinib with panobinostat, on a Novartis or Incyte sponsored study, who have been judged by the study Investigator to benefit from ongoing treatment.


This roll-over protocol allows patients from multiple protocols, who are still receiving clinical benefit, to continue their treatment in one study that covers multiple indications. The population for the roll-over study should be consistent with the population defined in the parent studies. The primary eligibility criteria for a patient to enter the roll-over protocol is the participation and completion of a Novartis or Incyte study with ruxolitinib monotherapy or combination of ruxolitinib and panobinostat. Efficacy parameters will not be measured; however safety data and an evaluation of clinical benefit will be collected.
