From June 3rd till June 6th, Chicago again formed the background for the biggest cancer congress in the world. Notwithstanding the fact that solid tumours remain the main focus of the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the meeting program also included some interesting lectures on haematological malignancies. The aim of this report is not to discuss all these studies, but will address some of the key presentations on haematological cancer from ASCO 2016. For a more complete overview we would like to refer to the congress website, where all abstracts and a plethora of webcasts can be found.
