Which cytoreductive drug is your first-line option for the treatment of myeloproliferative neoplasms (MNPs)?

Chris Hillis, MD, MSc: Hydroxyurea or hydroxycarbamide remain the first-line cytoreductive therapies in MPNs in 2019. In young patients and in patients who wish to become pregnant who do require cytoreductive therapy we would use interferon as first-line [treatment].
