Brief Summary:
The study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of rusfertide in subjects with polycythemia vera (PV) in maintaining hematocrit control and in improving symptoms of PV.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Polycythemia Vera Drug: Placebo Drug: Rusfertide Phase 3

Detailed Description:
Phase 3 study in approximately 250 subjects previously diagnosed with polycythemia vera (PV) who require phlebotomy on a routine basis. There is a 32-week period during which rusfertide or placebo will be added-on to each subject's ongoing therapy for polycythemia vera which may include phlebotomy only or phlebotomy plus stable doses of either of hydroxyurea, interferon and/or ruxolitinib. All subjects who successfully complete the double blind 32-week portion of the study will receive rusfertide for 124 weeks. Approximately 6 and 12 months after their last dose of rusfertide, subjects will have a post-study contact (e.g. by phone) for safety.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of subjects achieving a response who receive rusfertide compared to placebo. [ Time Frame: Week 20 through Week 32 ]
    Response is defined as absence of phlebotomy eligibility.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Comparison of mean number of phlebotomies between rusfertide and placebo. [ Time Frame: Week 0 to Week 32 ]
  2. Proportion of subjects with HCT values <45% for rusfertide and placebo. [ Time Frame: Week 0 to Week 32 ]
  3. Comparison mean change from baseline in total fatigue score based on PROMIS Short Form between rusfertide and placebo. [ Time Frame: Week 32 ]
  4. Comparison of mean change from baseline in total MFSAF total score. [ Time Frame: Week 32 ]
