  • Embargoed materials as well as results and information related to sessions at any meeting or event organized by the ISTH are strictly confidential and cannot be disclosed in any manner or for any purpose prior to the lifting of the embargo by the ISTH.

  • The information contained in the abstracts is embargoed until the abstracts are available online. Coverage of information that goes beyond that which is contained in the four corners of the abstract (e.g., additional analysis, commentary, or updated information from those individuals and companies involved in the study) is embargoed according to the following criteria: For oral presentations: the embargo time is the start time of the session in which the presentation is being made. For poster presentations: the embargo lifts when the poster session containing the poster opens for viewing in the morning (i.e., when the poster hall opens that day).

  • The ISTH 2023 Virtual Press Room tab of the website should be consulted for updated embargo information. For any questions related to embargoes, contact the ISTH for clarification prior to releasing the information.
