European School of Haematology (ESH) How to Diagnose and Treat meetings are disease-specific meetings that address state-of-the-art diagnostic and clinical management on the basis of presentation, analysis and discussion of real clinical cases.

Novel and still evolving insights into the biology and diagnosis of acute leukaemias, including acute myeloid leukaemias (AMLs) and acute lymphoblastic leukaemias (ALL), is offering new therapeutic options with recent drug approvals to treat newly-diagnosed as well as relapsed/refractory disease.

The program of this “2nd How to Diagnose and Treat: Acute Leukaemia” meeting will deal with integration of genomic analysis and cutting-edge technics in routine diagnosis, gene mutation-based therapies and new standard treatment algorithms, allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell (HSCT) transplantation and innovative immunotherapies, as well as diagnosis and management of rare acute leukaemia subtypes.


Learning objectives:

  1. 1. Learn about the modern sets of diagnosis tests needed to optimally manage patients with AML and ALL
  2. Review and hierarchize the new treatment standards that could be offered to AML and ALL patients for front-line as well as salvage therapy
  3. Understand the value and role of leukemic stem cell targeting and measurable residual disease (MRD) levels to stratify acute leukaemia therapy
  4. Gain insight into emerging mechanisms associated with clinical resistance and leukaemia escape
  5. Understand the effects and place of new immunotherapies with respect to standard or new HSCT procedures

The program will include:

– Plenary Sessions
– Interactive Cases Presentations
– Roundtables
– Panel Discussions
– Debates
– Poster Presentations
– Voting boxes
