The Journal of the American Medical Association Oncology has featured a study from first author and project lead, Abraham Kanate, M.D.
Kanate, who serves as an associate professor in the Department of Internal Medicine, led an international consesus project, “Maintenance Therapies for Hodgkin and Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas After Autologous Transplantation.”
Maintenance therapies are often considered as a therapeutic strategy in patients with lymphoma following autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation to mitigate the risk of disease relapse.
Kanate’s additional roles include being the Medical Director of the WVU Cancer Institute’s Osborn Hematopoietic Malignancy and Cellular Therapy Program.
Patrice A. Harris, M.D., M.A., a psychiatrist from Atlanta, was sworn in today as the 174th president of the American Medical Association (AMA), the nation’s premier physician organization. Dr. Harris is the first African-American woman to hold the office. She will focus her tenure on the AMA’s three strategic arcs: attacking the dysfunction in health care by removing obstacles and burdens that interfere with patient care; driving the future of medicine by reimagining medical education, training and lifelong learning, and by promoting innovation to tackle the biggest challenges in health care; and leading the charge to confront the chronic disease crisis and improve the health of the nation.
