Polycythemia vera is a bone marrow disease marked by the excessive production ofred blood cells and is occasionally accompanied by an increased number of white blood cells and platelets.
The JAK2 p.V617F (c.1849G>T) somatic point mutation is present in almost all patients with polycythemia vera and in a large proportion (40%-50%) of patients with essential thrombocythemia or primary myelofibrosis.
Although those diseases, beta-thalassemia and polycythemia vera, have opposite effects on red blood cell production, treating animals with minihepcidin helps to restore normal levels of red blood cells and reduces spleen enlargement.
Among the 11 previously published cases there were three cases of myelodysplastic syndrome, two cases of acute myeloid leukemia, and one of each of atypical chronic myeloid leukemia, polycythemia vera, polycythemia vera/acute myeloid leukemia overlap, myeloproliferative neoplasia, not otherwise specified, myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasia overlap, and CEL-NOS.

As model genes, the researchers used JAK2, a gene that when mutated causes a bone marrow disorder known as polycythemia vera; SERPINA1, a gene that when mutated causes alpha 1 anti-trypsin deficiency, an inherited disorder that may cause lung and liver disease; and AAVS1, a gene that's been recently discovered to be a "safe harbor" in the human genome for inserting foreign genes.
