New Perspectives in Acute and Chronic GVHD: Challenges and Opportunities for Improving Prophylaxis and Treatment with Novel Therapeutics
In this activity, experts in graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) provide learners with a solid grounding in the underlying biology and immunologic rationale for the use of various treatment modalities throughout the GVHD spectrum, including steroid-naïve and steroid-refractory disease, while also detailing how the clinical evidence to date on novel agents should inform the prevention and treatment of this disease in hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients.
