Should you get a genetic test? Myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) experts, Dr. Alison Moliterno and Dr. Stephen Oh, help patients understand the driver mutations associated with MPNs such as JAK2V617F, calreticulin (CALR), MPL and others. The experts explain why you should know your genetic mutations and how this knowledge can impact your care and treatment. The panel also discusses if MPNs are hereditary and what causes mutations. You’ll also hear from Marsha, a patient advocate, as she shares her own story.
