Research Question:
What is the safety, tolerability and effectiveness of ruxolitinib compared to anagrelide in patients with Essential Thrombocythemia who are resistant or intolerant to hydroxyurea?

Basic Study Information

This study has two groups. The first group, Group A, will be treated with ruxolitinib and placebo and the second group, Group B, will be treated with anagrelide and placebo.
