Transplantation – now considered as part of a treatment package

Mohamad Mohty, MD, PhD, from the Saint-Antonine Hospital, Paris, France, discusses the record number of participants at the 2017 annual meeting of the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) in Marseille, France. According to Prof. Mohty, this clearly highlights that EBMT is becoming one, or even the, most important transplant meeting worldwide. He thinks the major changes that have been witnessed in the past few years are that the EBMT meeting is not focused solely on transplantation, rather, this is now considered as part of a treatment package. He argues that next, knowledge about how transplant and non-transplant can be combined for the benefit of patients should be disseminated.
