Granulocytes & Constitutional Marrow Failures Disorders
The Specialized Working Group (SWG) on Granulocytes and Constitutional Marrow Failure Syndromes (G&CMFS) derives from the fusion of the formerly existing SWG on Granulocyte and Monocyte Disorders with other initiatives, grown within the EHA environment, related to Constitutional Marrow Failure Syndromes. These initiatives include the ribosome disorders group, the leukemia predisposition gene group and the group on Gaucher Disease.
The SWG aims to implement and divulge knowledge on this group of rare diseases and to endorse networking amongst different centers that are active in this area at the European level.
In this view the SWG promoted during the COVID pandemic, recommendation:
- on how to handle the infections ( https://ehaweb.org/assets/Uploads/Recommendations-for-patients-with-chronic-neutropenia-and-CMFD-final.pdf);
- “Expert Opinions for COVID-19 vaccination in patients non-malignant hematologic diseases”: https://ehaweb.org/covid-19/eha-statement-on-covid-19-vaccines/recommendations-for-covid-19-vaccination-in-patients-with-non-malignant-hematologic-diseases/ )
The SWG actively interacts through numerous initiatives ( guidelines, review, scientific papers) with Eunet – Innochron, CA 18233 – European Network for Innovative Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Neutropenias ( https://www.cost.eu/actions/CA18233/ )
