TARGET AUDIENCE
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of healthcare providers who manage cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection and/or antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) in patients who undergo transplant.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES
After participating in this educational activity participants should be better able to:

  • Implement prophylactic and preventive anti-CMV therapy in at-risk transplant patients as recommended by the current evidence base
  • Promptly diagnose transplant patients with CMV infection and disease, using new and emerging assays and tools
  • Apply clinical trial data for new and emerging treatment options to manage transplant patients infected with CMV, including those with resistant or refractory disease
  • Select appropriate therapeutic agents using evidence-based protocols to prevent and treat AMR based on the pathophysiological underpinnings of the disease
  • Integrate an understanding of the contribution of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibodies and complement deposition in transplant glomerulopathy (TG) and graft loss into the management of AMR
