European Congresses

This year marked the 22nd EHA Congress, which was held for the first time in Madrid from 22 to 25 June. The Annual Congress provides a forum for presenting original unpublished data and disseminating evidence-based knowledge of primary clinical relevance.

Dr. John G. Gribben, EHA new President elect and a member of LC Medical Advisory Board, presented an excellent overview of the latest lymphoma and CLL updates at EHA during the advocacy capacity-building session (see his slides).

Anita Waldman, LHRM Chair and a founding member of the LC, remarkably illustrated the patient perspective in the Quality of life session, reminding that most onco-hematological patients experience long-term side-effects – such as fatigue, memory loss, fear of relapse –and need support in the long run.

Many scientific sessions were dedicated to lymphomas, including indolent, aggressive and rare lymphoma subtypes. While the treatment options continue to develop in many areas, Prof. Gilles Salles highlighted in his educational talk on relapsed-refractory DLBCL the unmet needs that some categories of lymphoma patients still experience.
