The role of the endothelium in allogeneic transplantations Dr. Olaf Penack is a Senior Physician in the Medical Deptartment of the Division of Hematology, Oncology and Tumor Immunology at Charité Hospital Berlin (Virchow Campus). In this talk, he will discuss the urgent need for novel therapeutic approaches to improve survival of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), which is the only curative treatment for many patients with hematologic malignancies. However, survival after HSCT is <50% because patients die frequently from graft-versus-host…
