Childhood Leukemia Early Adverse Reactions 2017 Conference

Elsinore, Denmark, June 1-3, 2017

Dear colleague,

Treatment intensification has led to significant improvements in cure rates for childhood acute leukemia, but also to higher risks of acute treatment-related toxicities. We still have a limited understanding of why these toxicities emerge and the individual risk factors thereof. A large international collaboration is now ongoing to address these early adverse events, including setting strategies for prevention and treatment.

The Childhood Leukemia Early Adverse Reactions (CLEAR) conference has gathered a panel of world experts to address acute toxicities during therapy for childhood acute leukemia.

Topics that will be addressed are:

In addition, meet-the-expert sessions will be offered.

Registration includes conference fee, meet-the expert session, 2-nights’ stay at Marienlyst Hotel and all meals.

Early bird registration until April 1st 2017.

Oral abstract submission deadline has passed, but we welcome you to send abstracts for posters until March 25th 2017 (response will be given before April 1st, early bird deadline).

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the CLEAR 2017 Conference. Please visit for more information.

On behalf of the organizing committee,

Kjeld Schmiegelow
