Accurate prediction of thrombosis in essential thrombocythemia (ET) provides the platform for prospective studies exploring preventive measures.

Considering all three cohorts (n=1,220), the three-tiered new prognostic model (low-risk n=474 vs. intermediate-risk n=471 vs. high-risk n=275), with a respective thrombosis risk of 1.03%pts/yr vs. 2.35%pts/yr vs. 3.56%pts/yr, outperformed the two-tiered (low-risk 0.95%pts/yr vs. high-risk 2.86%pts/yr) conventional risk stratification in predicting future vascular events.

Abstract

Accurate prediction of thrombosis in essential thrombocythemia (ET) provides the platform for prospective studies exploring preventive measures. Current risk stratification for thrombosis in ET is two-tiered and considers low- and high-risk categories, based on the respective absence or presence of either age >60 years or history of thrombosis. In an international study of 891 patients with WHO-defined ET, we identified additional independent risk factors including cardiovascular risk factors and JAK2V617F. Accordingly, we assigned risk scores based on multivariable analysis-derived hazard ratios (HR) to age >60 years (HR 1.5; one point), thrombosis history (HR 1.9; two points), cardiovascular risk factors (HR 1.6; one point) and JAK2V617F (HR 2.0; two points) and subsequently devised a three-tiered prognostic model (low-risk, <2 points; intermediate-risk, 2 points; and high-risk, >2 points) using a training set of 535 patients and validated the results in the remaining cohort (n=356; internal validation set) as well as in an external validation set (n=329). Considering all three cohorts (n=1,220), the three-tiered new prognostic model (low-risk n=474 vs. intermediate-risk n=471 vs. high-risk n=275), with a respective thrombosis risk of 1.03%pts/yr vs. 2.35%pts/yr vs. 3.56%pts/yr, outperformed the two-tiered (low-risk 0.95%pts/yr vs. high-risk 2.86%pts/yr) conventional risk stratification in predicting future vascular events.
