Laboratory Evaluation of Primary Immunodeficiencies and Immune Dysregulation Syndromes
Wednesday, December 12 at 3 pm CT
Many new monogenetic immune defects are marked by autoimmunity, lymphoproliferation, and hyperinflammation rather than infectious complications. Hematology-oncology physicians might be among the first to evaluate these patients. Practicing pediatric hematology-oncology physicians and trainees must have a greater foundation of knowledge regarding the laboratory evaluation of these unique and often complex patients. A webinar focused on the best practice in laboratory evaluation of these immunological disorders is vital to ensure timely diagnosis and treatment for these patients and their families.
We will look at mechanisms related to ALL treatment that increase risk factors during treatment and subsequently leading to long-term risk of Cardiovascular disease, obesity and insulin resistance. We will discuss interventions that can alter the metabolic pathways to cardiometabolic disease.
• Describe the multifactorial physiologic mechanisms for obesity and cardiometabolic disease and discuss potential prevention strategies for pediatric ALL patients.
• Impact of Obesity on Childhood ALL survivors and long-term health-related outcomes into adult years.
