GvHD Hub continues to enhance global knowledge of graft-versus-host disease throughout 2021





Press Release: Available for Immediate Release

The GvHD Hub, run by Scientific Education Support (SES) in partnership with the European LeukemiaNet (ELN), has continued to promote significant developments in the treatment and research of graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) throughout Quarter 2 of 2021.

Despite the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the hub has been further expanding its social media presence and engaging with the global community on all major social networks, helping to improve everyday clinical practice.

Speaking about the impact the hub has had this year, Mia Hill, IME director at Scientific Education Support, said:

“The GvHD Hub continues to support the GvHD community. In April, we introduced a new editorial theme on the latest updates on chronic GvHD treatment. In May, the GvHD Hub held its biannual steering committee meeting virtually, which saw very informative discussions on the direction of the hub. New topics to focus on were introduced and novel educational initiatives were discussed, to ensure that the GvHD Hub stays up to date.

This quarter was a busy one in terms of congresses, with the GvHD Hub providing live coverage from a host of virtual events. In April, we attended the Acute Leukemia Forum 2021, and June saw the 2021 ASCO Annual Meeting and the 26th Congress of the European Hematology Association (EHA2021) take place. During these meetings, the GvHD Hub provided live coverage of sessions and produced articles on the cutting-edge research presented by key experts in the field. Having a presence at all these events enable us to share key updates and enhance the knowledge of GvHD, globally.

The GvHD Hub would like to thank our silver level supporters—Incyte and Novartis—for their continued support of the initiative. Last quarter, we were delighted to welcome Syndax (Bronze) and Kadmon (Contributor) as supporters. We would like to extend a special thanks for their support going forward.”

NOTES TO EDITOR

About graft-versus-host disease (GvHD)

GvHD is a common complication of allo-HSCT and is a major cause of posttransplant mortality and morbidity. It is caused by immune incompatibility between the graft (donor) and recipient tissues. The graft cells recognize the recipient tissues as foreign and mount an immune response against them.

About the GvHD Hub

The GvHD Hub is an open-access online resource, dedicated to providing balanced, credible, and up-to-date medical education on GvHD. Our aim is to enhance knowledge of GvHD through the multichannel dissemination of global advances related to its classification, diagnosis, treatment, and management.

The GvHD Hub is the solution for a time-stretched HCP to easily access impactful information that expedites learning and empowers their treatment decisions. Informed by patients, curated by world leaders and endorsed by expert societies the GvHD Hub supports HCPs worldwide.

The GvHD Hub shares new data, evidence-based articles, therapy approvals, expert opinions, and international congress coverage to treatment teams and researchers around the world.

The GvHD Hub is guided by an international steering committee of world-leading experts in the field of GvHD and is run in partnership with the European LeukemiaNet.
