Pomalidomide for Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (2465)
A Phase-3, Multi-Center, Randomized, Doubleblind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-Group Study To Compare Efficacy And Safety Of Pomalidomide In Subjects With Myeloproliferative Neoplasm, Associated Myelofibrosis And Red Blood Cell-Transfusiondependence
