Important dates

The CT2 committee is now open for new proposals

Working parties are asked to discuss any new ideas for proposals during their working party meetings at the Annual Meeting, including the WP statistician. If your WP does not have an allocated statistician, Leiden based WPs should contact Ronald Brand and Paris based WPs should contact Myriam Labopin before 17th March 2015, to have an EBMT statistician allocated to the proposal.

The deadline for submission of proposals to the CT2 committee is 17th April 2015. Proposals will be reviewed by the CT2 committee before the June 2015 Board meeting.

Please consult the EBMT website for further information. If you have any questions about the proposal process, please contact liz.clark@ebmt.org.

Ongoing Clinical Trials

The EBMT Clinical Trials Office is currently working on two prospective clinical trials in addition to the older trials that are in long-term follow-up.

RACE (PI’s: Regis Peffault de Latour, Antonio M Risitano – Sponsor = EBMT, CTC = Astrid Hoeppener): A prospective Randomized multicenter study comparing horse Antithymocyte globuline (hATG) + Cyclosporine A (CsA) with or without Eltrombopag as front-line therapy for severe aplastic anemia patients in France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
  • Submissions are ongoing (submissions have been made in France and Italy)
  • It is planned that the first patients will be recruited into this trial during the first half of 2015
The CMV Prophylaxis trial (EBMT Steering Group: Per Ljungman, Rafael Duarte – Sponsor = Merck, CTC = Sue Philpott) is progressing well. At the end of February 2015, over 120 patients had been randomised into the trial.

Other trials are still in long term follow up and/or undergoing analysis.
