The International Thalassaemia Day celebrated annually on the 8th of May, is a commemoration day in honour of all patients with thalassaemia, and to all scientists who, with tireless dedication and enduring efforts, are striving to ensure an improved quality of life to people with thalassaemia across the world.

#Theme for 2020:
"The dawning of a new era for thalassemia: Time for a global effort to make novel therapies accessible and affordable to patients".

#Novel therapies:
ZYNTEGLO is the first and only one-time groundbreaking gene therapy for transfusion-dependent β-thalassemia by Bluebird Bio that gives patients the potential to reach complete transfusion independence. In November 2019, the FDA approved REBLOZYL (Luspatercept-aamt) for the treatment of anemia in β-thalassemia in adults needing regular red blood cell (RBC) transfusions.
