Welcome to HemeTeam 2013

HemeTeam is a companion to hematological studies, designed to present a succinct account of what is new and important for students and physicians.

These notes on the pathogenesis, manifestations and treatment of common blood diseases, are frequently updated to reflect changing concepts.

The incorporation of molecular genetic data into clinical trials has elevated therapeutics to a whole new level of sophistication. We still need to keep things in perspective, with these important advances in mind.

Perhaps the most important advance in hematology is the recognition of the prime importance of the supportive tumour cell microenvironment such as in multiple myeloma, and the need to target it in refractory cases of chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The microenvironment has been relatively neglected in diseases such as peripheral T-cell lymphoma which are associated with a poor prognosis.

There are some case studies with MCQs and feedback.
