This educational activity is directed toward hematologists and hematologist-oncologists who treat patients with cold agglutinin disease. Fellows, nurses, nurse practitioners, and other health care professionals interested in the management of patients with cold agglutinin disease are also invited to participate.
Cold agglutinin disease (CAD) has a significant impact on patients’ quality of life. Historically, the limited availability of treatment options has hindered management of CAD. However, the treatment landscape is shifting as novel therapies are developed based on improved understanding of the role of the complement system in the pathogenesis of CAD. Health care professionals require a strong foundation of knowledge in the efficacy, safety, and role of both available and emerging therapies for CAD to improve the outcomes in this patient population.
This program features experts presenting important topics on CAD, including the burden of disease and the impact of CAD on patient quality of life, as well as the role of the complement system in CAD. The program also includes expert review of current and emerging data surrounding strategies for rapid and accurate diagnosis, current management approaches and the potential of emerging treatments.
