Moffitt’s Blood Cancer Experts Share the Latest Research and Treatment Advances

By Kim Polacek, APR, CPRC - December 12, 2022

Every three minutes, an American is diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma. It is an alarming statistic, but top hematologists from across the world are coming together to discuss the latest research and treatment advances to help those blood cancer patients have better outcomes. This week, more than 30,000 physicians and scientists gathered in New Orleans for the 64th Annual American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition

Moffitt Cancer Center was well represented at the conference, presenting more than 55 abstracts on the latest research in the treatment of blood malignancies. Topics include identifying factors that can help predict patient outcomes to CAR T-cell therapy, how monoclonal antibody therapy for COVID can improve outcomes for stem cell transplant patients, and whether racial and ethnic differences impact outcomes in multiple myeloma.
