Topic: “Current Classification of Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs)“
Speaker | Hans Michael Kvasnicka, University of Witten / Herdecke, Germany
Moderator | John Goodlad, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow, United Kingdom
Recently, several important changes have been made to the classification of myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). For chronic myeloid leukemia, BCR::ABL1-positive, the definition of accelerated and blast phase was simplified and in BCR::ABL1-negative MPNs the classification was slightly updated to improve diagnostic specificity with a more detailed and better validated morphologic approach and the recommendation of more sensitive molecular techniques to capture in particular early stage disease.
Join us for this webinar as we discuss the new diagnostic criteria for MPNs. We’ll focus on the current concepts and how to use them to make a clinically and prognostically relevant diagnosis.
