Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate safety and tolerability of NS-018 assessed by the type, frequency, seriousness and intensity of adverse events [ Time Frame: Throughout the study until 30 days after the last dose of study drug (patients with disease progression or no clinical benefit after 6 cycles [168 days] will be discontinued from the study) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Phase 1 and Phase 2

  • To establish maximum tolerated dose of NS-018 [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 (28 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Phase 1

  • To evaluate response to NS-018 treatment using the International Working Group (IWG) consensus criteria, change in spleen size and bone marrow assessment [ Time Frame: Day 29, 57, 85, and every 84 days thereafter ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Phase 2


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the pharmacokinetic parameters of NS-018 (Cmax, Tmax, AUC, t1/2 and accumulation ratio) [ Time Frame: Up to 24 hours post-dose on Day 1, 8, 15, 29 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Phase 1 and Phase 2

  • To evaluate pharmacodynamic correlates of NS-018 [ Time Frame: Day 1, 8, 15, 29, 57, 85, and every 84 days thereafter ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Phase 1 and Phase 2

  • To evaluate quality of life assessments using Myelofibrosis Symptom Assessment Form (MF-SAF) [ Time Frame: Day 29, 85, and every 84 days thereafter ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Phase 1 and Phase 2
