The term myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) summarizes a group of rare, chronic diseases of the blood-forming cells in the bone marrow.1 What they all have in common is that certain blood cells are produced in excess.2,3 This can subsequently lead to various complications such as blood clots and vascular occlusions or an increased tendency to bleed and significantly reduce the quality of life of patients.1 MPN diseases can burden those affected with many symptoms – these include severe tiredness or exhaustion (fatigue), dizziness, itching and circulatory problems in the hands and feet.2,3 With a timely diagnosis and a suitable treatment individually tailored to the patient, the success of the therapy can be positively influenced and the patient’s quality of life can be restored.1
