ASH 2014 Series Coverage

by David Wallace

PV Reporter covering the American Society of Hematology (ASH) 2014 conference in a series format

For me personally, highlights go beyond the research that was presented (ASH 2014 Outside the Box, addresses that in detail).  It was about meeting friends…old and new (in person), attending the MPN Heroes Awards Presentation, the excitement of interviewing world renowned MPN/Leukemia experts, and self-discovery. 

The annual event held in San Francisco this year includes interviews with:

Dr Heinz Gisslinger,  Vienna, Austria, A pioneer in the use of Interferon in MPNs, discussing AOP2014 (the new interferon).

MPN Research update from ASH Meeting

2014’s Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology proved to be a big year for research in the myeloproliferative neoplasms. Tens of thousands of experts in blood disorders in attendance proved that work in the MPNs is vigorous and ongoing.

Our Scientific Advisor John Crispino, PhD, from Northwestern University, took part in the meeting. He’s reported back exclusively to us on what you need to know as a patient, caregiver, community hematologist or anyone working in the MPNs.

About David Wallace

Founder of PV Reporter, a resource for Myeloproliferative Neoplasm (MPN) patients and caregivers. After being diagnosed with Polycythemia Vera (PV) in 2009, I utilized social media to connect with "informed patients" and develop a better understanding of emerging treatment options. My philosophy on patient care is straight forward - "educating the patient is essential, so the patient can guide their physician to meet his or her needs." PV Reporter is a comprehensive resource hub giving visitors vital tools to become "empowered patients."
