Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.
The person who is responsible for the scientific and technical direction of the entire clinical study.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
This is a multicenter study with 2 arms, and will include 3 phases: a) screening phase of up to 28 days before randomization during which participants will complete a 14-day washout period from all prior therapies including JAK-inhibitor treatment, and the participant's eligibility will be reviewed; b) treatment phase, from randomization until study treatment (imetelstat or BAT) discontinuation; and c) post treatment follow-up phase, that begins when the participant discontinues treatment, and will continue until death, lost to follow-up, withdrawal of consent, or study end, whichever occurs first. Participants will be randomized (2:1) into 2 Arms (Arm A will receive imetelstat and Arm B will receive BAT). Participants who meet progressive disease criteria and discontinue BAT, may crossover to receive imetelstat treatment after sponsor's approval.
Participants will receive imetelstat at 9.4 mg/kg intravenous (IV) every 21 days (±3 days), until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity, treatment discontinuation or study end.
Active Comparator: Best Available Therapy (BAT)
Participants will receive BAT (investigator-selected non-JAK-inhibitor treatment), until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity, treatment discontinuation or study end.
Drug: - Imetelstat
Imetelstat will be given intravenously at 9.4 mg/kg every 21 days, until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity, treatment discontinuation or study end.
Drug: - Best Available Therapy (BAT)
Non-JAK-inhibitor treatment will be given, which may include but is not limited to hydroxyurea, thalidomide or an analog of thalidomide, interferon, danazol, hypomethylating agents, and chemotherapy.
