Scientific report 2022 of the Acute Leukemia Working Party (ALWP)
The activity of the ALWP continues to increase thanks to the great contribution of the ALWP members and collaborators and the continuous efforts of the ALWP staff. We receive constant demonstration of appreciation by a continuous increase in the study proposals, and for this I really recognize the unique dedication and commitment of the entire ALWP staff, and I am grateful for that. The established organisation of ALWP in sub-committees reflects the wide area of interests and improves both continuity of investigators and participation in a scenario of high rate of scientific production.
The number of transplants for patients with acute leukaemia is constantly growing, with increase in the HCT indications, as well the age of the patients and diseases. New drugs are available for both conditioning regimens and maintenance therapies, as well post-transplant management to decrease disease recurrence and non-relapse mortality. ALWP achieved a great number of peer reviewed publications, as it happens during the previous years, in key high impact factor journals, and presentations to international conferences on haematology and transplants.
In line with the scientific initiative started last year, ALWP is still collecting the data on next-generation sequencing (NGS) data and use of novel drugs, with the aim to improve the quality of the registry and the scientific output of the publication to the benefit of the patient's care.
I am very grateful for tireless efforts in sending such complex data, which will definitely lead to the generation of new knowledge to further advance the management of acute leukaemia.
