The AML Hub, run by Scientific Education Support (SES) in partnership with the European LeukemiaNet (ELN), has continued to promote significant developments in the treatment and research of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) throughout Quarter 2 of 2021. The AML Hub provides up-to-date, unbiased material for healthcare professionals within the AML community, worldwide.
Input from the hub's executive steering committee and scientific advisory board allows the AML Hub to gauge the latest content demands and to deliver material of the highest value. On May 25, 2021, the AML Hub held a virtual steering committee meeting, which highlighted the achievements of the AML Hub, as well as the unmet clinical needs in the AML setting and how to address them. The success of the virtual format of the meeting further emphasized the versatility and resilience of the AML Hub and its affiliates.
Speaking about the success of the hub's activity, Mia Hill, IME director at Scientific Education Support, said:
"In the second quarter of 2021, the AML Hub continued to successfully navigate the virtual climate, remotely covering the 2021 Korean Society of Hematology International Conference & 62nd Annual Meeting (ICKSH 2021), the Acute Leukemia Forum (ALF) 2021, the 2021 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, and the European Hematology Association (EHA) 2021 Virtual Congress. The AML Hub provided a combination of live and on-demand social media coverage of key sessions and conducted interviews with experts in the field of AML.
For the first time, in order to help navigate the exciting content being presented at the EHA2021 Virtual Congress, members of the AML Hub Executive Steering Committee kindly provided their insights into the top abstracts to look out for in AML. We compiled both the clinical content and the disease biology sessions in the form of a downloadable resource, including links to view the abstracts."
The hub has faced several challenges throughout 2021, and reflecting on these challenges, Mia Neve said:
"The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has challenged healthcare services and individuals worldwide, especially patients with hematologic malignancies. The AML Hub is working hard to bring you the latest information regarding COVID-19 and its implications in the AML setting: a summary of the guidelines on COVID-19 vaccination for hematopoietic stem cell transplant patients has been published, based on expert recommendations presented during the 47th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT).
The AML Hub owes thanks to its supporters -Roche Genentech, AbbVie, Amgen, Novartis, Bristol Myers Squibb, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Jazz Pharmaceuticals, Gamida Cell, and Takeda -without whom the work would not be possible. In Quarter 2, the AML Hub was delighted to welcome Syndax as a supporter and would like to extend a special thanks for their support going forward."

About acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
Leukemia is cancer of the white blood cells. Acute leukemia means that the cancer progresses quickly and aggressively, and usually requires immediate treatment.
Acute leukemia is classified according to the type of white blood cells affected. There are two main types of white blood cells:
- lymphocytes-cells that fight viral infections.
- myeloid cells-cells that have a variety of functions, such as fighting bacterial infections, defending the body against parasites, and preventing the spread of tissue damage.
AML is an aggressive cancer of the myeloid cells.
