Date: Tuesday 30 June - Thursday 2 July 2020
Venue: Online Conference
European School of Haematology (ESH) How to Diagnose and Treat meetings are disease-specific meetings that address state-of-the-art diagnostic and clinical management on the basis of presentation, analysis and discussion of real clinical cases.
Novel and still evolving insights into the biology and diagnosis of acute leukaemias, including acute myeloid leukaemias (AMLs) and acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL), are translating into new therapeutic options with recent drug approvals for the treatment of newly-diagnosed as well as relapsed/refractory disease.
The programme of this “2nd How to Diagnose and Treat: Acute Leukaemia” meeting will address the integration of genomic analysis and cutting-edge techniques for routine diagnosis, gene mutation-based therapies and new standard treatment algorithms, allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell (HSCT) transplantation and innovative immunotherapies, as well as the diagnosis and management of rare acute leukaemia subtypes.
ESH How to Diagnose and Treat conferences are clinically oriented meetings that focus on the state-of-the-art and future perspectives. One major objective is to promote interaction between the speakers and participants.
The meeting will include plenary sessions with plenty of time allocated to general discussion. Case-study sessions will use voting box technology to enhance interactive discussion. Simultaneous Meet the Expert sessions will provide a format for face to face interaction on specific themes between small groups of registered participants and selected members of the faculty.
Posters and Brief Oral Communications:
Registered participants are invited to submit their biology and clinical abstracts, and clinical cases. Selected abstracts will be presented as posters. Selected clinical cases will be presented as brief oral communications or posters.
Call for Abstracts and Clinical Cases: deadline Sunday 12 January 2020
This meeting will be valuable for you if you are looking for:
