This is a Phase 2, multicenter, open-label study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of luspatercept in subjects with MPN-associated myelofibrosis and anemia with and without RBC-transfusion dependence. The study is divided into a Screening Period, a Treatment Period (consisting of a Primary Phase, a Day 169 Disease Response Assessment, and an Extension Phase), followed by a Posttreatment Follow-up Period.
Subjects satisfying the eligibility criteria will be assigned to 1 of the following cohorts (which are enrolling in parallel) based on their eligibility: - Cohort 1 (subjects with anemia only that are not currently receiving RBC transfusions) - Cohort 2: (subjects that are RBC-transfusion dependent) - Cohort 3A: (subjects on ruxolitinib as part of their standard of care therapy that have anemia only) - Cohort 3B: (subjects on ruxolitinib as part of their standard of care therapy that are RBC-transfusion dependent) Overall, the study will enroll approximately 100 subjects worldwide.
|Experimental: Luspatercept in subjects with MPN-associated myelofibrosis
Subjects across each of the cohorts (Cohort 1, Cohort 2, Cohort 3A, and Cohort 3B) will receive luspatercept.
Luspatercept is a recombinant fusion protein consisting of a modified form of the extracellular domain of the human active in receptor type IIB linked to the IgG1 Fc domain. Luspatercept, through a mechanism of action different from erythropoietin, works to correct ineffective erythropoiesis by promoting late-stage maturation of erythroblasts.

Subjects must satisfy the following criteria to be enrolled in the study (with the
enrollment date defined as the date in which the subject is assigned a cohort in Integrated
Response Technology [IRT]) and receive their first dose of luspatercept:
1. Subject is ≥18 years of age at the time of signing the informed consent form (ICF).
2. Subject has Myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN)-associated myelofibrosis (PMF, post-
Post-polycythemia vera myelofibrosis (PV MF), and/or Post-essential thrombocythemia
myelofibrosis (post-ET MF)) as confirmed from the most recent local bone marrow biopsy
report according to the World Health Organization 2016 criteria.
3. Subject has anemia defined as:
1. Cohorts 1 and 3A
- Obtain ≥ 3 Hemoglobin (Hgb) levels of ≤ 9.5 g/dL recorded on ≥ 3 different
days, including the day of dosing, in the 84-day period immediately up to
the C1D1 date. There must be ≥ 14 days in between each Hgb measurement. No
subjects with an interval ≥ 42 days between hemoglobin measurements will be
- There must not be any Red blood cell (RBC) transfusions within the 84-day
period immediately up to the C1D1 date.
2. Cohorts 2 and 3B
- Average RBC-transfusion frequency: 4 to 12 RBC units/84 days immediately up
to the C1D1 date. There must be no interval > 56 days without ≥ 1
- Subjects must have a Hgb value of < 13 g/dL on C1D1 prior to luspatercept administration. - Only RBC transfusions given when the Hgb ≤ 9.5 g/dL are scored in determining eligibility. 4. Subject has an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance score of ≤ 2. 5. Subject is not anticipated during the 6 months from the C1D1 date to receive a hematopoietic cell transplant. 6. A female of childbearing potential (FCBP) for this study is defined as a female who: 1) has achieved menarche at some point, 2) has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy or 3) has not been naturally postmenopausal (amenorrhea following cancer therapy does not rule out childbearing potential) for at least 24 consecutive months (ie, has had menses at any time in the preceding 24 consecutive months). FCBP participating in the study must: 1. Have 2 negative pregnancy tests as verified by the Investigator prior to starting study therapy. She must agree to ongoing pregnancy testing during the course of the study, and after end of study treatment. This applies even if the subject practices true abstinence* from heterosexual contact. 2. Either commit to true abstinence* from heterosexual contact (which must be reviewed on a monthly basis and source documented) or agree to use, and be able to comply with, effective contraception** without interruption, 28 days prior to starting investigational product, during the study therapy (including dose interruptions), and for 12 weeks (approximately 5 times the mean terminal halflife of luspatercept based on multiple-dose pharmacokinetics [PK] data) after discontinuation of study therapy. 7. Male subjects must: a. Practice true abstinence (which must be reviewed on a monthly basis) or agree to use a condom during sexual contact with a pregnant female or a female of childbearing potential while participating in the study, during dose interruptions and for at least 12 weeks (approximately 5 times the mean terminal half-life of luspatercept based on multiple-dose PK data) following investigational product discontinuation, even if he has undergone a successful vasectomy 8. Subject must understand and voluntarily sign an ICF prior to any study-related assessments/procedures being conducted. 9. Subject is willing and able to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements. Exclusion Criteria: The presence of any of the following will exclude a subject from enrollment (with the enrollment date defined as the date in which the subject is assigned a cohort in Integrated Response Technology (IRT)): 1. Subject use of hydroxyurea or other drugs with potential effects on hematopoiesis or ongoing adverse events from previous treatment ≤ 112 days immediately up to the enrollment date. a. Systemic corticosteroids are permitted for nonhematological conditions providing the subject is receiving a stable or decreasing dose for ≥ 84 days immediately up to enrollment and is receiving a constant dose equivalent to ≤ 10 mg prednisone for the 28 days immediately up to enrollment. 2.
