Non-inferiority was not achieved for the key secondary endpoint of response rate in total symptom score (TSS).
Greater improvements in all three pre-specified anemia-related secondary endpoints (proportion of patients who are transfusion independent, or transfusion dependent and transfusion rate) were observed in patients receiving momelotinib compared to ruxolitinib.
