The ISTH recently announced that MD Conference Express, the world’s first peer-reviewed medical congress highlights publication, will be the official highlights report of the ISTH 2013 Congress. Through this partnership, the ISTH will provide a scientifically-vetted overview of key outcomes from the Congress to global practitioners and researchers.

"We are excited about the partnership and collaboration,” said Nigel Key, M.D., ISTH’s council chairman-elect and chairman of the publications committee. "MD Conference Express unique and stringent peer-review process will provide the readers with a scientifically vetted overview of the most important outcomes from our ISTH 2013 Congress – including highlights of data which may not yet have a published primary source. With this partnership, we can bridge the gap between live congress presentations and their eventual publication in the academic literature with a scientifically sound resource.”

Content for MD Conference Express is selected by the ISTH Congress scientific steering committee. The concise summary articles are written entirely from primary source material. The presenting faculty are invited to review and comment on the short summaries, which are then subjected to rigorous peer-review by an advisory board of experts from top medical institutions around the world. This process ensures that the resulting summary articles are of top quality and free of any commercial bias.

MD Conference Express: ISTH 2013 will be available to ISTH members and attendees of the ISTH 2013 Congress in Amsterdam just five weeks after the close of the event. Translated copies are planned to be made available to thrombosis and haemostasis researchers and practitioners around the world.

To introduce the concept of peer-reviewed congress highlights to our community, MD Conference Express has created a custom reprint collection of bleeding and clotting topics summarized from other major congresses in 2012. This special "ISTH Presents: MD Conference Express Highlights in Thrombosis and Haemostasis” is now available on and also on .
