Abstract

We prospectively tested, at diagnosis in essential thrombocythemia (ET) patients with no clear indication to platelet (PLT)-lowering treatment, a scoring system based on age, PLT level, cardiovascular diseases, previous thrombotic events, smoking and dysmetabolic diseases. From 04/92 to 03/98, 168 consecutive patients were enrolled. Hydroxyurea (HU) was started at diagnosis in 32 "symptomatic" patients and in 33 patients aged >70 years. The remaining 103 patients ("asymptomatic" and aged
