Urge your members of Congress to support continued medical research funding
The American Society of Hematology (ASH) leads the world in promoting and supporting clinical and scientific hematology research through its many innovative award programs, meetings, publications, and advocacy efforts.
Blood is the official journal of the American Society of Hematology and the most cited peer-reviewed publication in the field. It is published weekly every Thursday, except for the last week in December, in addition to the ASH Annual Meeting Abstracts issue in November.
Blood Advances, the first journal to join the Blood family in 70 years, is a peer-reviewed, online only, open access journal. Under the direction of founding editor-in-chief Robert Negrin, MD, the inaugural issue made it's debut in December at the 58th ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition in San Diego.

ASH's strategic plan highlighting the importance of placing hematology as a top funding priority in the healthcare community
The relationship between hemostasis and inflammation has emerged as a major area of investigation in recent years. The laboratory of Charles Esmon, in which the present work was performed, has played a major role in developing this area of study by unraveling mechanisms by which the serine protease, activated protein C (APC), functions.
The alternative pathway of complement (APC) is in a state of continuous, low-grade activation, and host erythrocytes are normally protected against complement-mediated injury by two glycosyl phosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored membrane proteins. Decay accelerating factor (DAF, CD55) inhibits the formation and stability of the APC C3 and C5 amplification convertases and membrane inhibitor of reactive lysis (MIRL, CD59) block the assembly of the cytolytic membrane attack complex (MAC).
Haploidentical transplantation could just as easily be called haplounidentical transplantation, because recipient and donor are matched at HLA loci on one chromosome 6 (haploidentical) but not on the other (haplounidentical).
Dr. Moll reviews a study that looks at the use of direct oral anticoagulants, specifically apixaban, in patients on hemodyalisis.
ASH submitted comments to the NIH on hematology-related pediatric research that should be included in the NIH's All of Us research program.
After spending months crafting legislation to repeal and
replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), in late July, the U.S. Senate had its
chance to vote on and pass repeal legislation.
The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) released a request for information soliciting input on the use of viral vectors as platforms for therapeutic gene delivery to specific organs or cell types, and how such platforms might be developed most efficiently in clinical trials for the treatment of multiple diseases.
On July 13, 2017, the U.S. Senate released an updated
version of the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), legislation to repeal
large provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
