Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of PMF, PPV-MF, or PET-MF.
  • DIPSS risk category of intermediate-1, intermediate-2, or high.
  • Palpable spleen of ≥ 5 cm below the left costal margin on physical examination at the screening visit.
  • Active symptoms of MF at the screening visit, as demonstrated by the presence of a TSS of ≥ 10 using the Screening Symptom Form.
  • Participants with an ECOG performance status score of 0, 1, or 2.
  • Screening bone marrow biopsy specimen and pathology report(s) available that was obtained within the prior 2 months or willingness to undergo a bone marrow biopsy at screening/baseline; willingness to undergo bone marrow biopsy at Week 24 and every 24 weeks there after. Screening/baseline biopsy specimen must show diagnosis of MF.
  • Life expectancy of at least 24 weeks.
  • Willingness to avoid pregnancy or fathering children.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Prior use of any JAK inhibitor.
  • Prior therapy with any drug that inhibits PI3K (examples of drugs targeting this pathway include but are not limited to INCB040093, idelalisib, duvelisib, buparlisib, copanlisib, and umbralisib).
  • Use of experimental drug therapy for MF or any other standard drug (eg, danazol, hydroxyurea) used for MF within 3 months of starting study drug and/or lack of recovery from all toxicities from previous therapy to ≤ Grade 1.
  • Inability to swallow food or any condition of the upper gastrointestinal tract that precludes administration of oral medications.
  • Recent history of inadequate bone marrow reserve.
  • Inadequate liver and renal function at screening.
  • Active bacterial, fungal, parasitic, or viral infection that requires therapy.
  • Active HBV or HCV infection that requires treatment or at risk for HBV reactivation.
  • Known HIV infection.
  • Uncontrolled, severe, or unstable cardiac disease that in the investigator's opinion may jeopardize the safety of the participant or compliance with the Protocol.
  • Active invasive malignancy over the previous 2 years.
  • Splenic irradiation within 6 months before receiving the first dose of study drug.
  • Concurrent use of any prohibited medications.
  • Active alcohol or drug addiction that would interfere with the ability to comply with the study requirements.
  • Use of any potent CYP3A4 inhibitors or inducers within 14 days or 5 half lives(whichever is longer) before the first dose of study drug or anticipated during the study.
  • Inadequate recovery from toxicity and/or complications from a major surgery before starting therapy.
  • Currently breastfeeding or pregnant.
  • Any condition that would, in the investigator's judgment, interfere with full participation in the study, including administration of study drug and attending required study visits; pose a significant risk to the participant; or interfere with interpretation of study data.
  • History of Grade 3 or 4 irAEs from prior immunotherapy.
  • Receipt of any live vaccine within 30 days of the first dose of study drug
