The MPN Hub, run by Scientific Education Support (SES) in partnership with the European LeukemiaNet (ELN), is an open-access online resource dedicated to providing balanced, credible, and up-to-date medical education in myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN). In the final quarter of 2021 (Q4), the MPN Hub has communicated significant developments in the research and treatment of MPN, including four major treatment approvals.
In Q4, the MPN Hub was delighted to cover the 63rd American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition and looks forward to delivering materials on key takeaways in the MPN setting. In collaboration with our Steering Committee, the MPN Hub provided a downloadable resource recommending the top abstracts to look for in MPN at ASH 2021. Additionally, we virtually attended the 2021 International Congress on Myeloproliferative Neoplasms, providing live coverage of key sessions and joining the conversation on Twitter.
The MPN Hub aims to address uncertainties caused by the ever-changing COVID-19 situation, and remains dedicated to supporting healthcare professionals throughout the pandemic, delivering information on its impact on the MPN community.
The MPN Hub would like to thank Bristol Myers Squibb, AbbVie, CTI BioPharma, Novartis, Kartos Therapeutics, AOP Orphan, Constellation Pharmaceuticals, Geron, and Sierra Oncology for their continued support of the platform.
Reviewing the MPN Hub’s impact this quarter, Mia Hill, IME Director at Scientific Education Support, said:
“We were delighted to round off 2021 with extensive coverage of the 63rd ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition, navigating the hybrid format and capturing key information around developments in MPN. The MPN Hub also proudly reported 8 major drug updates including four treatment approvals. Namely, mepolizumab
was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug administration (FDA) and European Commission for the treatment of hypereosinophilic syndrome, and ropeginterferon alfa-2b-njft
received approval from both the FDA and Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) of South Korea for the treatment of polycythemia vera. We look forward to delivering more crucial updates to the MPN community and a prosperous 2022.”

About myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN)
Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are a group of rare blood cancers where the body produces too many red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets. The three main types include myelofibrosis, polycythemia vera, and essential thrombocythemia.
About the MPN Hub
The MPN Hub is an open-access online resource, dedicated to providing balanced, credible, and up-to-date medical education in MPN. Our aim is to enhance knowledge of MPN through the multichannel dissemination of global advances related to their classification, diagnosis, treatment, and management.
The MPN Hub shares new data, evidence-based articles, therapy approvals, expert opinions, and international congress coverage to treatment teams and researchers around the world. Informed by patients, curated by world leaders, and endorsed by expert societies, the MPN Hub supports HCPs worldwide.
Founded in partnership with the European LeukemiaNet (ELN) in 2020, the MPN Hub is guided by an international steering committee of experts in the field of MPN. The steering committee meet regularly to discuss the performance of the MPN Hub and to devise action plans on how best to support the MPN community and address any unmet educational needs.
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.
