Blood Journal
Leading the way in experimental and clinical research in hematology

First Edition

To enable Blood’s readers to learn about new scientific findings at the earliest possible moment, the Journal prepublishes, in manuscript format, all accepted articles shortly after acceptance as “First Edition Papers.” First Edition Papers have undergone full scientific review but none of the editorial preparation, such as copyediting, typesetting, and proofreading, which is mandatory for all articles published in the regular print and online issues of Blood.

Disclaimer: The ideas and opinions expressed in Blood’s First Edition Papers do not necessarily reflect those of The American Society of Hematology or the Editors or Blood.
