Treatment guidelines


Treatment advice in relation to COVID-19 virus outbreak

In connection with the COVID-19 virus outbreak, both the executive board of the Dutch Hematology Association (NVvH) and HOVON have set up guidelines for the treatment of non-COVID patients with hematological diseases. An addendum has also been drawn up for the use of hematological drugs in patients admitted for COVID-19 infection.

Both documents can be viewed via this link (in Dutch only). If there are any questions or comments, you can always contact

Corona vaccinations can be performed according to national / local policy in your country for your trial patients.

Treatment guidelines

HOVON has set up working groups consisting of experts in Leukemia, Myeloma, CLL, Benign Hematology, Lymphomas, Stem Cell Transplantation, Supportive Care and LLPC.

In these working groups, discussions are held and designs are made for new studies. Treatment recommendations are also made for the treatment of patients outside of a study context.

Per disease group you will find the treatment advice in the submenu.
