A new report released today and supported by the
American Society of Hematology (ASH), the world’s largest professional

research progress and threaten the health and safety of Americans.
New research published online today in Blood, the Journal of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), suggests that the diversity of bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract of patients receiving stem cell transplants may be an important predictor of their post-transplant survival.

of patients with blood diseases and cancer around the world. This week’s proposal from the Senate Labor,
Health and Human Services, and Education (Labor-HHS) Appropriations
Subcommittee to provide $30.45 billion to NIH in fiscal year (FY) 2015 represents
an encouraging step toward rebuilding important biomedical research programs
