Three of the 40 patients were negative for JAK2 mutations at diagnosis (8%). Of 27 PV patients treated with pegylated IFN-α-2a, 24 (89%) had a mean decrease of 44% in the expression of mutated JAK2 allele by reverse transcription (RT)– PCR. There was no evidence of a plateau. In one patient, mutant JAK2 was not detected after 12 months. In three patients homozygous for the mutation, reappearance of 50% of wild-type allele was observed during treatment. Interferon has also been shown to preferentially target the malignant clone.
