Hematology and hematologists worldwide are working in an exciting fast-paced medical field and an ever-changing world around them.
The field’s internal speed of changes and front-line accomplishments in the medical field create an increasing need for adaptions to new techniques and therapies. Immunotherapy is one of those rapidly developing treatments, with promising components like chimeric-antigen-receptor therapy (CAR T) and other treatments.
At the same time, socio-economic developments also have a considerable impact on health care, as mass migration and an aging population incrementally change the incidence of diseases previously rare in Europe. These change the incidence of hemoglobinopathies and a new need for education arises to ensure the appropriate diagnosis and treatment. Furthermore, language barriers and political issues like immigration status have a further influence on the access to medicine.
Following all these rapid and promising developments, EHA launched two dedicated Topics-in-Focus Programs:
- Immunotherapy with a focus on CAR T Cell Therapy
- Hemoglobinopathies with a focus on Sickle Cell Disease
These initiatives will unlock knowledge and update you on the latest information EHA has to offer.
