Title Therapeutic Efficacy of Combined JAK1/2, Pan-PIM, and CDK4/6 Inhibition in Myeloproliferative Neoplasms.
Abstract Text The JAK1/2 inhibitor ruxolitinib has demonstrated significant benefits for patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN). However, patients often lose response to ruxolitinib or suffer disease progression despite therapy with ruxolitinib. These observations have prompted efforts to devise treatment strategies to improve therapeutic efficacy in combination with ruxolitinib therapy. Activation of JAK-STAT signaling results in dysregulation of key downstream pathways, notably increased expression of cell-cycle mediators including CDC25A and the PIM kinases.Given the involvement of cell-cycle mediators in MPNs, we sought to examine the efficacy of therapy combining ruxolitinib with a CDK4/6 inhibitor (LEE011) and a PIM kinase inhibitor (PIM447). We utilized JAK2-mutant cell lines, murine models, and primary MPN patient samples for these studies.Exposure of JAK2-mutant cell lines to the triple combination of ruxolitinib, LEE011, and PIM447 resulted in expected on-target pharmacodynamic effects, as well as increased apoptosis and a decrease in the proportion of cells in S-phase, compared with ruxolitinib. As compared with ruxolitinib monotherapy, combination therapy led to reductions in spleen and liver size, reduction of bone marrow reticulin fibrosis, improved overall survival, and elimination of disease-initiating capacity of treated bone marrow, in murine models of MPN. Finally, the triple combination reduced colony formation capacity of primary MPN patient samples to a greater extent than ruxolitinib.The triple combination of ruxolitinib, LEE011, and PIM447 represents a promising therapeutic strategy with the potential to increase therapeutic responses in patients with MPN.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page. Filtering has no impact on query parameters.
  • Use quotes to match on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "mtor c1483f")


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending; however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column. Be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column before moving on to the next column.
