FDA uses PROMIS® to Evaluate Fatigue in Patients Taking Jakafi for Myelofibrosis

An exploratory analysis of patients receiving Jakafi also showed improvement in fatigue-related symptoms (i.e., tiredness, exhaustion, mental tiredness, and lack of energy) and associated impacts on daily activities (i.e., activity limitations related to work, self-care, and exercise) as measured by the PROMIS Fatigue 7-item short form total score at Week 24. Patients who achieved a reduction of 4.5 points or more from baseline to Week 24 in the PROMIS Fatigue total score were considered to have achieved a fatigue response. Fatigue response was reported in 35% of patients in the Jakafi group versus 14% of the patients in the placebo group.
