ESH International Conference on Haematological Disorders in the Elderly
Most haematological disorders predominate in the elderly, and their incidence therefore increases with patient ageing everywhere in the world. In addition, management of these disorders in older patients at that age often requires specific approaches, in particular treatments with more limited toxicity.
But ageing is also characterized by modifications in haematopoiesis, in the lymphoid system and in coagulation, with specific consequences including infections and thrombosis.
The goals of this conference are to define ageing in biological terms, to address its consequences on the bone marrow, lymphoid tissue and on haemostasis, and to discuss resulting disorders.
Treatment issues in the different types of haematological malignancies will be addressed with emphasis on the unique aspects of treatment related to ageing.
