Arising in blood and lymph forming tissue, haematological malignancies have diverse causes, treatments and outcomes. More than 100 subtypes are currently recognized by the World Health Organization.
Providing information that cannot be found elsewhere, ECSG delivers high quality research on all aspects of the epidemiology of these complex cancers; ranging from their distributions and causes, through to their prognosis and determinants of outcome.
