New studies on bone marrow failure diseases presented at scientific symposium Oct. 18-19

The latest advances in aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) and other bone marrow failure diseases will be presented at the Bone Marrow Failure Scientific Symposium Oct. 18-19 in Washington, DC. This is the first international meeting covering all bone marrow diseases--life-threatening conditions for which, in most cases, the cause is unknown.

New research on stem cell transplantation, immunosuppressive treatments, drug therapies and alternative approaches will be presented by the world's leading physicians on bone marrow failure diseases.

The symposium is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, including the Office of Rare Diseases, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute and the National Cancer Institute; and organized by Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation, Inc. (AA&MDSIF). Co-chairs are Jaroslaw Maciejewski, MD, PhD, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Taussig Cancer Center and Neal S. Young, MD, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.
