“Overexcited for this achievement shedding new insights into PNH clinico-biological features ‘Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria-related thrombosis in the era of novel therapies: a 2043 patient/years analysis’ out in Blood Journal.’

– Among 267 patients followed up for a total of 2043 patients/years, 56 (21%) developed TE.
– Thrombosis in atypical sites (eg, Budd-Chiari) is often the first sign of PNH, and anti-coagulation/anti-complement combination is the mainstay of treatment.
