Press Release: Embargoed until 07: 00am 18 October
Founded in partnership with the European LeukemiaNet (ELN) and brought to you by Scientific Education Support (SES), the GvHD Hub provides up-to-date, unbiased resources for healthcare professionals in the graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) setting.
The GvHD Hub remains dedicated to bringing you the latest information regarding COVID-19 and its implications in patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, as well as keeping on top of the unmet medical needs in the field.
Speaking about the impact the hub has had this year, Mia Hill, IME Director at Scientific Education Support, said:
“This quarter, the GvHD Hub ran a successful steering committee meeting centered around the educational needs in the GvHD setting and how to best represent them on the GvHD Hub. The GvHD Hub also virtually attended two major congresses: the 9th Annual Meeting of the Society of Hematologic Oncology (SOHO) and 4th Annual Meeting of the International Academy for Clinical Hematology (IACH). We provided live session coverage of these meetings, establishing an online presence to facilitate the dissemination of key updates and breakthroughs in GvHD, worldwide. Our social coverage generated over 13,000 impressions and over 200 new website users, which demonstrates the impact our coverage has on the GvHD community.”
The GvHD Hub initiative is financially supported by Incyte (Silver), Novartis (Silver), Syndax (Bronze), and Kadmon (Contributor); we remain grateful for their invaluable support.

NOTES TO EDITOR
About graft-versus-host disease (GvHD)
GvHD is a common complication of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and is a major cause of posttransplant mortality and morbidity. It is caused by immune incompatibility between the graft (donor) and recipient tissues. The graft cells recognize the recipient tissues as foreign and mount an immune response against them.
About the GvHD Hub
The GvHD Hub is an open-access online resource, dedicated to providing balanced, credible, and up-to-date medical education on GvHD. Our aim is to enhance knowledge of GvHD through the multichannel dissemination of global advances related to its classification, diagnosis, treatment, and management.
The GvHD Hub enables time-stretched HCPs to easily access impactful information that expedites learning and empowers their treatment decisions. Informed by patients, curated by world leaders, and endorsed by expert societies, the GvHD Hub supports HCPs worldwide.
The GvHD Hub shares new data, evidence-based articles, therapy approvals, expert opinions, and international congress coverage to treatment teams and researchers around the world.
The GvHD Hub is guided by an international steering committee of world-leading experts in the field of GvHD and is run in partnership with the European LeukemiaNet.
GvHD Hub supporters
Funding for our hubs is made possible through financial support from the pharmaceutical industry. All content is developed by SES in collaboration with an expert steering committee. All content is independent, and the educational supporters are allowed no influence on the content.
