Prominent hematologists from Poland and abroad will spend four days of the 5th International Conference "Clinical and Experimental Hematology" discussing new methods of diagnosis and treatment. The opening lecture will be delivered by the President-elect of the European Society of Hematology. For the first time, the conference will be accompanied by parallel sessions on the safety of treatment with blood components.

Diagnostic workshops, educational lectures, discussions, systems sessions, panels aimed at young researchers: the program of this year's conference is exceptionally rich. - " This is the largest hematology conference in Poland in the years when the conventions of the Polish Society of Hematologists and Transfusionists are not held, i.e. every two years," stresses Prof. Krzysztof Giannopoulos, president of the Polish Society of Hematologists and Transfusionists, coordinator of the Program of the 5th International Conference "Clinical and Experimental Hematology.

Even before the official start of the conference, practical workshops will be held on modern diagnostic methods, on which both the treatment and monitoring of its effectiveness depend. The topics of the conference are very broad, including diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic leukemia, plasmocytic myeloma, lymphoma, amyloidosis, Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia, myelodysplastic syndromes, myelofibrosis, verrucous melanoma, among others. - At the conference, we want to show that there is a lot going on in every area of hematology these days. However, we place special emphasis on the diagnosis and modern treatment of acute myeloid leukemia, which today poses the greatest medical challenge, since 5-year survival rates have only recently begun to exceed 30 percent. We will also talk a lot about new treatments, including CAR-T technology and bispecific antibodies. Every year we expand the formula of topics: this year, for the first time, there will be sessions on transfusionology and the safety of blood components in treatment. There is a lot going on in this area, so we decided to create separate sessions dedicated to modern blood therapy," Prof. Giannopoulos points out.
