Recent genetic analyses of large populations have identified somatic mutations in hematopoietic cells and clonal expansion, which is acquired and correlated with aging. This clonally restricted hematopoiesis is associated with an increased risk of myeloid or lymphoid neoplasms as well as increased cardiovascular and all-cause mortality. This symposium will update the audience on this topic and provide expert opinions on the biologic significance and potential clinical implications of these clonal abnormalities in hematology practice.
