Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Upon reduction of jakafi dose due to low platelet count from 20 mg to 5 mg every 12 hours patient experienced extreme pain experienced low blood pressure and rapid heartbeat and with admission to emergency was treated for shock and then diagnosed with toxic shock syndrome and treated for that. The blood and urine tests however showed ant reason for infection after 5 days. He died 40 hours after reaching the hospital. Cytokine overreaction is my belief that brought on a septic shock like syndrome.
Ann Chris on Oct, 14, 2014:
I agree. This took place 16 months ago and was done as directed by the drug rep. Since that time much more has been made known about dosage. The patient was also started on the high dose where research shows now the dose should be started low and slowly worked up. My theory is the rapid decrease in the drug caused a cytokine reaction causing system shock.
Dave M. on Oct, 12, 2014:
Maybe patient should not have been on 20mg. Something else likely going on here with sudden reduction from 20mg to 5mg. Sudden reduction due to sudden drop in platelets. Slower dose reduction with transfusion if required would be in order.
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I have pos. speckled ANA titer since I was in my early 20's, but no autoimmunity symptoms or rashes to report. My LLMD has dx'd me as having lyme disease and I am in treatment for that currently.
From this study (1 month ago):
My jaw pops when I chew on the left side only. It hurts if I open it more than an inch. I have hold my head back in order to put food in mouth because I can only open it so wide.
