Provided By

RMEI Medical Education, LLC

Target Audience

Transplantation, hematology, and hematology/oncology clinicians engaged in the care of patients with GVHD.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Utilize available therapeutic strategies for the prevention and treatment of acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (alloHSCT)
  • Implement current and emerging strategies to address unmet needs in the management of steroid-refractory acute GVHD in allogeneic HSCT

Activity Description

Allogeneic HSCT is a revolutionary therapeutic discovery, yet despite advances, the procedure still carries substantial risk for complications and death. Even with prophylactic measures, many patients will go on to develop acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD). While there are several agents available for the prevention and treatment of aGVHD, there are still many unmet needs. In this Clinical Reflections® activity, learners will be presented with 2 cases of aGVHD and challenged by expert faculty to reflect back on how they could have been better managed. Faculty will then discuss current guidelines; prevention and treatment options; and emerging agents for prevention, first-line therapy, and steroid-refractory aGVHD.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for transplant, nephrology, general surgery, and internal medicine clinicians managing transplant patients with antibody-mediated rejection (AMR).

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Identify the pathophysiology of chronic active antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) that leads to deleterious clinical manifestations in kidney transplant patients
  • Apply Banff diagnostic criteria for chronic active AMR in renal allografts
  • Examine the potential role of emerging therapeutic approaches in the management of chronic active AMR

Activity Description

Although over 100,000 renal transplants are performed worldwide each year, only a fraction of recipients are living with functioning renal grafts. Approximately 40% of renal transplants fail within 10 years. Chronic, or late, renal graft rejection is a leading cause of failure. Management of chronic active antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) is a major challenge due to the lack of both approved treatment options and clinical evidence informing current guidelines. In this fast-paced, highly interactive activity, Drs. Jordan, Djamali, and Schinstock will take you through the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and emerging therapeutics for chronic active AMR.
