NCCN 7th Annual Congress: Hematologic Malignancies™

New York, NY US
September 14, 2012 to September 15, 2012

The treatment of hematologic malignancies is increasingly complex.

In addition, targeted therapies and oral treatments bring the latest benefits to patients.

This 2-day congress will focus on the most up-to-date treatment recommendations, important issues, controversies, recent scientific findings, and future directions for hematologic malignancies. The agenda includes presentations on myelodisplastic syndromes, multiple myeloma, chronic myelogenous leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, lymphomas, transplantation, and supportive care topics including management of anemia, treatment of venous thromboembolic disease, and management of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura.
