Premier international meeting provides latest news and issues in blood disorders

(San Diego, Calif., December 5, 2003) More than 20,000 physicians and scientists from around the world will gather for the 45th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), the premier multidisciplinary event in blood disease research, which takes place December 6 9, 2003, at the San Diego Convention Center. Researchers and other experts will present the latest breakthrough findings in the field of hematology, covering topics ranging from leukemia and lymphoma to thrombosis and stem cells.

"The ASH annual meeting is the premier event for academic and practicing hematologists throughout the world, providing a unique forum for hematologists to learn about scientific and clinical advances in the area of hematology research," said Ronald Hoffman, M.D., President of the American Society of Hematology.

Hematology is a subspecialty of internal medicine involving the study of blood, which affects all organs and virtually every human function. Hematologists treat patients with a wide range of blood-related conditions, including hemophilia, sickle cell anemia, HIV-AIDS, leukemias and lymphomas, and blood clotting disorders.

The Plenary Policy Forum (scheduled for Sunday, December 7, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. PST), will address health insurance coverage issues in the United States, and will feature the Honorable John Kitzhaber, M.D., former governor of Oregon. The discussion will address the increasing number of uninsured, a national problem affecting practicing physicians and their patients. Immediately following is the Plenary Scientific Session (1:15 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. PST), during which investigators chosen by ASH will present state-of-the-art research in the field of hematology. Presented abstracts will report on advances related to lymphoma, deep vein thrombosis, pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia and gene expression profiling, and polycythemia vera.
