Welcome to the first childhood leukemia early adverse reaction conference

The CLEAR committee is pleased to invite you to the first conference focusing on childhood leukemia early adverse reactions from the 1st to the 3rd of June 2017 in Elsinore (DK).

Attracting a worldwide audience, the CLEAR 2017 conference will explore and discuss the clinical perspective of both leukemic and treatment related adverse reactions in children with leukemia.

The conference will include lectures, 'meet-the-expert'-sessions as well as poster presentations and thereby create a forum for international keynote speakers and expert delegates, who will share their knowledge in a friendly atmosphere. The conference is a rare opportunity to personally communicate with experts within the field.

Young researchers will have the opportunity to present their work and award prices will be given for best poster and oral presentation.

Childhood leukemia early adverse reactions

The treatment of children with leukemia has improved over the last decades with survival rates among the best in the world. However, the rise in survival rates has been followed by an increase in therapy related toxicities. More than fifty percent of children with leukemia suffer from therapy related toxicity. Some of these acute toxicities lead to lifelong late effects and co-morbidity. Therefore, we took the initiative to establish an international working group, that aims to develop common toxicity definitions, identify risk factors and develop guidelines for handling all toxicities. The working group includes researchers from all major international childhood leukemia research groups and has recently published common definitions of severe acute toxic effects.
