ASH 2018: Highlights on the role of microbiota injuries on HCT patients survival

Speaker: Jonathan U. Peled

Reporting from ASH 2018, Jonathan Peled explains that outcome variability after bone marrow transplantation could be impacted by pre-HCT microbiota injury. The analysis of the data and samples collected from this very large study showed that microbiota injury may be used as a predictor to adapt treatment decisions, and ultimately intervene directly at the microbiome level.
