Other factors were also found statistically significantly associated with number of days absent: comorbid conditions (P=0 discount indinavir 400mg free shipping.

Dropout rate (based on 69 of 301 cases available for analysis) was significantly associated with maternal education at birth buy indinavir 400mg free shipping, comorbid conditions cheap 400mg indinavir amex, and type of educational intervention, but not stimulant exposure, duration, or dose. While this study had some methodological advantages over other studies, the main limitation was the number of children included, particularly in the nonmedicated group, such that these findings should be interpreted cautiously. Maintenance of short-term symptom response effects Methylphenidate or immediate-release dextroamphetamine compared with placebo or non- drug therapy. All of the trials reported above were very short-term trials (range 1 to 9 weeks). Because of this serious limitation, the evidence does not provide information on the long-term benefits of these drugs in treating ADHD. To provide further evidence on duration of effect and longer-term outcomes, placebo- or non-drug therapy controlled trials of ADHD drugs with duration ≥6 months are reported here (Evidence Tables 7 and 8). We found 3 placebo-controlled trials of at least 6 months duration, 1 with immediate-release dextroamphetamine and 2 with 89-91 immediate-release methylphenidate, and 3 trials that randomized children to stimulant 92-94 medication or nondrug therapy for 12 to 14 months. Many of these studied indicated dissipation of medication effects over time, with unmedicated control groups having similar longer-term outcomes, particularly with follow-up of 2 years or greater. Of these, the largest (N=579) and longest duration of follow-up is the Multimodal Treatment Study of Children with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (MTA). The MTA was a relatively large study funded by the NIMH assessing medication management, behavioral treatments, standard community care, and combined medication management and behavioral 92 treatments over a 14-month period. Following the 14-month trial the groups had follow-up at 2, 92, 95-97 3, and 8 years post randomization. Medication management could involve any stimulant medication, but started with methylphenidate titration. At study end, 73% of those in 1 of the medication management groups were on methylphenidate and 10% on immediate-release dextroamphetamine, with small numbers of patients taking no medication, pemoline, imipramine, bupropion, or haloperidol, and 6% refusing to be in the medication arm assigned. All participants met DSM-IV criteria for ADHD combined type, had a mean age of 8. The sample population was ethnically diverse, with White (61%), African American (20%), and Hispanic (8%) representation. This study was a pragmatic trial in that the treatments were given openly (after blinded titration in the 2 drug treatment arms), and participants could refuse the assigned arm or add or change treatments. In the community care arm, for example, 68% were taking ADHD medications although the mean dose and number of daily doses of methylphenidate was lower in the community care arm than the medication arms. However, the outcome measures were not effectiveness outcomes, so the trial must still be viewed as an efficacy trial. After 14 months, medication management alone resulted in better scores compared with behavioral therapy for the symptoms of inattention (rated by both parents and teachers) and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms (parent ratings). Medication alone resulted in better scores on all ADHD symptoms than community care, except as measured by a classroom observer. Aggression-oppositional defiant disorder symptoms scores were better with medication alone compared with community care in teacher ratings only. Combined therapy (medication and behavioral therapy) was not different to medication alone on any scale. The effect of medication management was maintained over the 14 month period. Families were contacted 10 months after the end of the 14-month study (2 years post 95 randomization) to assess longer-term persistence of treatment effects. A total of 540 (93%) of the originally randomized 579 participated and 10 months after study end, 72% in the medication management alone group, 70% in the combined therapy group, 38% in the behavioral therapy group, and 62% in the community care group were taking medication for ADHD. At 2 years, medication alone still resulted in better scores on ADHD and oppositional defiant disorder symptoms than behavioral therapy and community care. Despite this, analyses of combined outcomes from the medication management alone and combined therapy groups compared with those of the behavioral therapy and community care groups suggest a reduction in the magnitude of benefit by half from the 14-month to 24-month time points; effect size changes for ADHD symptoms were 0. At 3 years of follow-up, 485 children participated (84%) and the proportions taking medication had changed. There was a decrease from 91% to 71% in the medication only/combined therapy group, an increase from 14% to 45% in the behavioral 96 therapy group; and about constant (60% to 62%) in the community care group. Along with these changes, the difference between groups in outcome measures was no longer statistically significant although all groups had improved compared with baseline scores on all measures. Further analyses indicated a benefit of regular medication use during the 14 month and 24 month periods, but not at 36 months.

Edwin Chen1 and Ann Mullally1 1Division of Hematology, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA A decade on from the discovery of the JAK2V617F mutation in the majority of patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), JAK2V617F is now firmly installed in the hematology curriculum of medical students and the diagnostic-testing algorithm of clinicians. Furthermore, the oral JAK1/JAK2 inhibitor ruxolitinib, rationally designed to target activated JAK2 signaling in MPN, has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States for the past 3 years for the treatment of intermediate- and advanced-phase myelofibrosis. Notwithstanding this, JAK2V617F continues to stimulate the MPN research community and novel insights into understanding the mechanisms by which JAK2V617F contributes to the pathogenesis of MPN are continually emerging.
