ASH 2016

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center experts are presenting pioneering findings across the field of hematology — from the unique genomic properties of pediatric acute myeloid leukemia to promising immunotherapy clinical trial results — at the 58th American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting Dec. 3–6, 2016.

Highlights include:

  • Latest immunotherapy trial results for patients with advanced leukemia
  • First results of early phase trial show 100 percent remission rate using T-cell therapy for AML patients
  • Massive pediatric AML genomic sequencing effort reveals
  • GVHD study so successful it was closed early and brought to clinic
  • Leading the way on cord blood transplantation
