  • Safety and tolerability of pevonedistat in combination with ruxolitinib in patients with myelofibrosis as measured by the frequency of adverse events [ Time Frame: Through 30 days after completion of treatment (estimated to be 42 weeks) ]
    -The descriptions and grading scales found in the revised NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0 will be utilized for all toxicity reporting.
  • Safety and tolerability of pevonedistat in combination with ruxolitinib in patients with myelofibrosis as measured by the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: 28 days after enrollment of last participant (estimated to be 25 months) ]
    -MTD: The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is defined as the dose level immediately below the dose level at which 2 patients of a cohort (of 2 to 6 patients) experience dose-limiting toxicity during the first cycle. Dose escalations will proceed until the MTD has been reached.

Pevonedistat in Combination With Ruxolitinib for Treatment of Patients With Myelofibrosis
Pevonedistat in Combination With Ruxolitinib for Treatment of Patients With Myelofibrosis
Based on the investigators' preclinical data, the combination of pevonedistat and ruxolitinib may provide greater clinical responses in patients with myelofibrosis compared to ruxolitinib monotherapy via inhibition of NFκB in addition to JAK-STAT signaling.

  • Drug: Pevonedistat
    The amount of pevonedistat to be administered will be based on body surface area (BSA). BSA will be calculated using a standard formula on Cycle 1 Day 1, and on Day 1 of subsequent cycles if the patient experiences a > 5% change in body weight from the weight used for the most recent BSA calculation.
