Clinical Practice Session

Complement: It's Everywhere

November 18, 2016 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: W375B

Session Description

With the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of a terminal complement pathway blocker, there has been an increased interest in the role of complement in the glomerular diseases. This session reviews the complement pathway and targets within that pathway. It also includes a review of the data for the emerging role of complement in specific glomerular disease settings.

Honorary Moderator: William G. Couser, MD

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. identify the role of complement abnormalities in predicting treatment targets; 2. recognize the role of complement in C3 glomerulopathy (CG3) and thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA); 3. recognize the role of complement in IgAN; and 4. evaluate the role of complement in ANCA-associated vasculitis.
