CANDID presentation ASHWe are delighted that the iCMLf CML and COVID-19 (CANDID data) was presented at the 63rd Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) 2021. The iCMLf CANDID study represents the largest global cohort study of CML patients with COVID-19 aiming to collect and analyse characteristics of COVID-19 cases among CML patients globally. During ASH, Dr Katia Pagnano presented an update of the CANDID data that explored the impact of various risk factors, such as co-morbidities, age, disease phase, CML treatment and economic status of the country of origin on clinical outcomes.

The CANDID real world data collection with more than 1,000 cases from 59 countries would not have been possible without the 186 physicians who contributed case reports.
We thank everybody for their valuable contributions.
