EBMT Göteborg 29 March–1 April 2009: inborn error and transplantation immunobiology minutes
This report includes highlights of sessions on haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and other immunologic treatment options for patients with inherited metabolic disorders, autoimmune diseases, immunodeficiencies and few other main topics of the 2009 annual EBMT meeting. Although chosen for their relevance for paediatricians working in the fields of haematology/oncology, immunology and inborn errors of metabolism, due to the occurrence of multiple parallel lectures, this article may only touch a selection of main topics and does not claim to be a complete conference report. Citations of the discussed conference papers are referred to by their presentation number as indicated within the congress abstract book, the Supplemental issue of Bone Marrow Transplantation Volume 43 S1 . A separate report on the EBMT Paediatric Diseases Working Party is presented in this issue of memo .
