The ASH Report


forumsphere stretched


The theme of MPNforum’s  Orlando ASH Report is “Behind the Scenes.”

Most of us never get to ASH… so this time we show you what it’s really like. Come on inside the CREATE MPN gene editing luncheon… and then head on out to see a surprising about-face at the MPN Heroes’ shindig. There’s all  that plus a quick overview of drugs and a couple of clinical trials (and a partridge in a pear tree.)

Enjoy… As always, this is an Advance Subscriber edition so if you find errors worth correcting, please let me know.

You can find it all at:
