Summaries for Polycythemia

Disease Ontology : 12 A bone marrow disease characterized by an increased number of red blood cells in the bloodstream resulting in thicker blood and reduced blood flow.

MalaCards based summary : Polycythemia, also known as polycythemia vera, is related to erythrocytosis, familial, 2 and acquired polycythemia. An important gene associated with Polycythemia is JAK2 (Janus Kinase 2), and among its related pathways/superpathways are TGF-Beta Pathway and Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+. The drugs Acetazolamide and Panobinostat have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include bone marrow, myeloid and spleen, and related phenotypes are Decreased viability and Decreased viability
