The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) partners with thrombosis related organizations from every continent to launch World Thrombosis Day focused on single cause of top 3 cardiovascular deaths worldwide.
EHA endorses and supports the initiative for this World Thromobis Day.
The European School of Haematology (ESH) hosted an international meeting on haematological disorders in the elderly in Barcelona from November 6 to 7, 2013.
Chairs of the meeting were L. Balducci, M. Björkholm, and P. Fenaux. The local organizer: E. Montserrat. The meeting was organized to provide a comprehensive review of the aspects to be considered when managing elderly patients with a variety of hematological disturbances.
Report the unavailability of Hematology Medicines to EHA today!
In the course of one day – December 11, 2013 – two calls for applications and expressions of interest were published that are of interest to researchers in hematology.
Hematology is one of few medical disciplines that have made significant steps in realizing the promise of personalized medicine. Together with ESMO and Eurocan Platform and in the context of our membership of the European Alliance for Personalised Medicine (EAPM), EHA was involved in the organization of a Roundtable ‘Oncology/Haematology: How to provide the right prevention and treatment to the right patient at the right time’.
Stockholm, June 14, 2013 Dr Wyndham Wilson will give an update on recent developments in the treatment of lymphomas with small molecules. The last 30 years have seen a plethora of treatments for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) but few advances have been made. Recent studies have identified B-cell receptor signaling as critical for many B-cell lymphomas including the most common type, called diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Recent studies have shown that DLBCL is actually not a single disease but at least 3 different diseases, each with its own critical abnormalities that allow it to survive as a malignancy. The most difficult to treat type of DLBCL is called the Activated B-cell (ABC) subtype, which is dependent on abnormal signaling of the B-cell receptor (BCR). Work by Dr. Lou Staudt has shown that these tumors will die when this pathway is inhibited.
Stockholm, June 14, 2013 Dr Jesus San-Miguel will present promising results of a phase 3 study in multiple myeloma.
Treatment for patients with multiple myeloma (MM) has improved over the last decade due to the introduction of new drugs such as lenalidomide and bortezomib. However, after receiving multiple treatments, MM patients often become resistant (refractory) to these drugs and have an average survival of only 9 months.
Stockholm, June 14, 2013 Dr Elizabeta Nemeth will present findings of a study in patients with iron overload disorders that will contribute to the design of a potential new treatment at the 18th Congress of the European Hematology Association in Stockholm.
Stockholm, June 14, 2013 Dr Ross Levine will present the results from a study on targeting the JAK-STAT pathway in myeloproliferative neoplasms.
Stockholm, June 14, 2013 Dr Valentin Goede will present promising outcomes for elderly CLL patients at the 18th Congress of the European Hematology Association in Stockholm.
