The most important Brazilian event on Lymphoproliferative Diseases

About The Conference:

The 14th edition of the Brazilian Lymphoma Conference (BLC 2024), a 3 1/2-day conference, will be held exclusively online from April 24-27. As a result of many people's work, the BLC has become the most significant event on lymphoproliferative diseases in Latin America due to the number of attendees and the acknowledgment of national and international experts. The updated scientific content, mainly focusing on the remarkable advances already published or submitted at recent meetings, presents a critical view of these studies, particularly in their relevance in countries with less financial resources, given the high cost of these new treatments.

Main Topics:
  • Agressive Lymphomas
  • Mantle Cell Lymphoma
  • Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
  • Follicular Lymphoma
  • Peripheral T-cell Lymphomas
  • Hodgkin Lymphoma
  • Access to novel therapies for onco-hematological diseases
  • Lymphoproliferative diseases: issues in evidence
  • Clinical Case Presentation

  • • Joint Session: Brazilian Lymphoma Conference (BLC) & Grupo de Estudo Latinoamericano de Linfoproliferativos (GELL): Understanding our common problems
    • Hot topics: NK Cells and Managing the Risk of Infection in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia in the Era of New Therapies
    • Key-note Conference: Circulating Tumor DNA in Lymphoma: Principles and Future Directions.
