Basic/Clinical Science Session

Allograft Tolerance in Our Time?

November 19, 2016 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: W185

Session Description

Several ongoing clinical trials are seeking to intentionally induce immunological tolerance of renal allografts. This session includes a review and update of the major clinical trials and diagnostics that might predict tolerance.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. describe the relevant cellular mechanisms for induction of tolerance; 2. explain the novel ability of the kidney to induce systemic tolerance of other organs; 3. summarize achievements and limitations of ongoing novel clinical trials in tolerance induction; and 4. discuss the state of the art in detecting the potential state of tolerance before withdrawal of immunosuppression.

Learning Pathways

  • Transplantation/Immunology
