Task group members:

  • Erik van Muilekom, chair, The Netherlands
  • Patrick Crombez, co-chair, Belgium
  • Johan de Munter, Belgium
  • Christine Schneider-Worliczek, Austria

EONS would like to thank AMGEN, TAKEDA and TEVA Pharmaceuticals for their support through an unrestricted educational grant.

This TITAN update is an EONS/EMBT joint project.
