Date:12/4/2011

TAMPA, Fla. Dec. 5, 2011 When the American Society of Hematology convenes its 53rd Annual Meeting and Exposition on Dec. 10-13 in San Diego, Calif., researchers from Moffitt Cancer Center will break a new record for Moffitt participants with one plenary presentation, 16 oral presentations and more than 50 poster presentations on new research results in a variety of meeting programs that focus on blood cancer basic science and clinical applications, including bone marrow transplantation and clinical trials results.

ASH, with more than 14,000 international members, is the world's largest professional society concerned with the causes and treatments of disorders affecting the blood; bone marrow; and the immunologic, hemostatic and vascular systems. The society seeks to further blood disease understandings, diagnoses, treatments and prevention by promoting research, clinical care, education, advocacy and training in hematology.

Claudio Anasetti, M.D., chair of Moffitt's Department of Blood & Marrow Transplant, will give a Plenary Session Presentation at 2:05 p.m. Sunday reporting on the results of a phase III study on Graft-Versus-Host Disease that compared the transplantation of blood stem cells and bone marrow transplants from unrelated donors.

Other Moffitt investigators will participate with 16 oral and more than 50 posters presentations on topics including stem cell transplantation and novel clinical trials for Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. In addition, several Moffitt faculty members will participate as speakers or will chair educational or scientific symposiums during the ASH meeting.
