Allan Victor Hoffbrand

He is distinguished for his research and as an author of internationally read textbooks of haematology, he was born in Bradford, Yorkshire in 1935. After education at Bradford Grammar School, he gained an Open Scholarship in 1953 to The Queen's College, Oxford, he gained a BA degree in Physiology and began clinical studies at The London Hospital in 1957 and qualified in medicine at University of Oxford, BM BCH in 1959. He began a career in haematology at the Postgraduate Medical School, Hammersmith Hospital joining a Medical Research Council Group in the field of megaloblastic anaemia in 1963, he established the first reliable method for measuring red cell folate and used this assay to determine the incidence of folate deficiency in a wide range of clinical diseases. After a year as an MRC scholar spent at the New England Medical Center, Boston, USA, 1967-1968, he returned to the Haematology Department of the Royal Postgraduate Medical School.

His further research was into vitamin B12/folate interrelations and the DNA defect in megaloblastic anaemia.

Within his department, he began an immunology section to become a major independent department. Research was into malignant haematological diseases. In conjunction with George Janossy and Mel Greaves, newly discovered monoclonal antibodies were used to classify and diagnose leukaemias and lymphomas. Molecular biological techniques were added to the biological and immunological research; the Department expanded. Some of the first studies into minimal residual disease, now used for tracking patients’ response to therapy were performed. With the appointment of Grant Prentice in 1976 the Department became one of the earliest in the UK to perform bone marrow transplants, showed for the first time that graft versus host disease could be prevented by depletion of donor marrow of T lymphocytes.

His other research concerned removal of iron from multiple transfused patients with thalassaemia major and other refractory anaemias. In 1976, Richard Propper and David Nathan suggested the use of subcutaneous desferrioxamine to prevent death from iron overload in these diseases; the same year Hoffband's group confirmed the success of this new therapy. In 1987, the first use of a clinically effective oral iron chelating agent, was reported from his group including George Kontoghioghes and Beatrix Wonke and in 1998, the first use of combination iron chelation therapy; these advances have improved the life expectancy of many thousands of sufferers from these blood disorders.
