AA & MDSIF Bone Marrow Failure Disease Symposium

Wauwatosa, WI US
November 4, 2016

Since bone marrow failure diseases are rare, clinicians may not be aware of the presenting signs and symptoms and thus delay earlier diagnosis and treatment.

Practitioners who see very few bone marrow failure disease patients may not be up-to-date on the clinical implications of cytogenetic and molecular abnormalities on diagnosis and treatment.

Clinicians may be relying only on bone marrow biopsies and not the latest technology to determine the pathogenesis and therapeutic options for bone marrow failure diseases.

Practitioners may not see many bone marrow failure disease patients and thus are not up-to-date on recent advances in treatment options;

Transplantation for bone marrow failure diseases may not be considered for patients over a certain age or without a related matched donor.
