Kidney Transplantation (2021)

Kidney Transplantation (2021)


This program focuses on the evaluation and management of kidney transplant patients. A panel of experts discusses novel strategies for appropriate donor selection, including paired kidney donation, desensitization, and other ways to maximize rates of organ transplantation. Highlighted topics include optimal immunosuppression strategies that incorporate an individualized approach, considering biomarkers and patient subtypes.

Managing complications merits its own series of sessions, with such subjects as acute and chronic T-cell and antibody-mediated rejection, recurrent disease, malignancies, and opportunistic infections. Recent management guidelines address COVID-19 in kidney transplant patients. Additional presentations provide overviews of immunology, tissue typing, and cellular therapies.
