Description:

This webinar will provide an broad overview of chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) and their application to the treatment of cancer using adoptive T cell immunotherapy. CAR therapy targeting CD19 will be discussed in detail including some of the unique toxicity associated with this novel therapeutic and the challenges to broadly applying this technology for B-cell leukemia and lymphoma.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the basic concept of a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR).
  • Describe the current applications of CAR technology to cancer therapy, specifically leukemia and lymphoma.
  • Recognize some of the unique challenges to using CAR-based therapies.

Descriptions:

"Zika in Latin America: Clinical Aspects" by Dr. Perret
A review the epidemiology of the Zika outbreak in Latin America, some clinical aspects, evidence of a Zika infection, and its complications (congenital disease and Guillain Barre Syndrome). In addition, she will discuss the local response to a series of travelers infected with Zika, including a pregnant woman and a sexually transmitted infection.

 

"Zika Virus Diagnostics" by Dr. Pinsky
Zika virus (ZIKV) is an Aedes mosquito-borne flavivirus that emerged in Brazil in 2015 and then rapidly spread throughout the tropical and subtropical Americas. Based on clinical criteria alone, ZIKV cannot be reliably distinguished from infections with other pathogens that cause an undifferentiated systemic febrile illness, including infections with two common arboviruses, dengue virus and chikungunya virus. This presentation details the methods that are available to diagnose ZIKV infection.

 

Course Objectives:

1. Identify Zika epidemiology in Latin America (Perret)
2. Discuss clinical aspects of Zika infection (Perret)
3. Discuss complications of Zika infections in recent studies (Perret)
4. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of Zika virus antibody testing (Pinsky)
5. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of Zika virus RNA testing (Pinsky)
6. Explore the utility of multiplex testing for co-circulating arboviruses (Pinsky)
