As usual, Christmas has come early this year:
The abstracts for this year's ASH conference are out. That's the American Society of Hematology, and it's perhaps the largest gathering of blood specialists in the country.
I took a quick look at the abstracts for Follicular Lymphoma, and it looks like there's some good stuff there.
The ASH conference usually involves presenting very early results from trials, or even pre-trial work. In other words, what gets presented is usually a few years away from showing up in the oncologist's office, if it shows up at all. But it does give a good sense of what's being worked on, and how likely we are to see some of those new treatments.
The conference happens December 5-8 in Orlando, Florida (a lovely place to be in December), and I would expect to see some Preview articles or videos just before the conference. These are great, because they give us a sense of what the experts are excited about. It would be nice to see some Follicular Lymphoma research being highlighted.
My plan, as usual, is to highlight and comment on the abstracts that seem exciting to me. I'll do my best to get to them soon.
