ASH 2018 | Practice changing abstracts in graft-versus-host disease 

Feb 8, 2019

Did you miss ASH 2018? The GvHD Hub attended the 60 thASH Annual Meeting & Exposition, December 1–4 2018, San Diego, CA, USA, and has developed a downloadable resource, which provides information on the practice changing abstracts across graft-versus-host disease (GvHD).

Our selection of ASH abstracts include comments from The GvHD Hub Steering Committeemembers on promising new therapeutic and prophylactic options; ruxolitinib for steroid refractory GvHD, KD025 for chronic GvHD, and vedolizumab for GvHD prophylaxis. Hear from the experts on the role of the microbiome, genetic risk factors and potential biomarkers in GvHD.
