Dr. Jason Gotlib at the Foundation Symposium

A Myelofibrosis Master Class

Dr. Jason R. Gotlib, Stanford Uniiversity i

Dr.Jason Gotlib, a Stanford School of Medicine hematologist, is one of the new generation of researchers and clinical investigators, specifically trained in clinical investigation. He has specialized in the myeloproliferative neoplasms and myelodysplastic syndromes.  Beyond his clinical practice, he was principal investigator on ruxolitinib at Stanford and is prinicipal investigator in the on-going trials of the YMBiosciences’ JAK inhibitor, CYT387.

When we first saw his PowerPoint presentation on JAK inhibitors in myelofibrosis delivered at the MPN Foundation Symposium, we realized it was a master class for patients, caregivers and physicians. Dr. Gotlib offered a comprehensive overview of symptoms, treatment options, the JAK inhibition mechanism, and results from several clinical studies.

 How to view the presentation: We converted the PowerPoint format into a full-size slide set you can control. With the cursor hovering over the lower part of each side, you can freeze and study the slide, go back to review or forward to the conclusion.

    I too would love to see or hear the data on these slides being presented with a slant towards the patient being able to understand better.

    • OK, Heather, you’re on. Why don’t you list the questions you have and let’s get you some answers.

    Was the presentation recorded in an audio or textual version ? A non-researcher patient.
