A poster discussion presentation will include data on pelabresib, an investigational BET inhibitor.

Pelabresib is being investigated in the Phase 2 MANIFEST study in patients with myelofibrosis and essential thrombocythemia and in the Phase 3 MANIFEST-2 study in combination with ruxolitinib as a first-line treatment for myelofibrosis. Myelofibrosis and essential thrombocythemia are both myeloproliferative neoplasms, which are types of blood cancers that begin with a genetic change in bone marrow stem cells. The presentations on pelabresib include:
