  • Evaluation of antibody-mediated prothrombotic disorders.
  • Presenting and discussing the advance in venous thromboembolism treatment and features of newer anticoagulant drugs

The meeting will include plenary lectures and interactive sessions. A Round table will be dedicated to discussion with patient organizations and regulatory issues to better understand the currently unmet needs in these conditions. The faculty will supplement the didactic presentations with panel discussions and case presentations. Adequate time will be allocated for questions.
