After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Describe the pathophysiology of antibody-mediated rejection (AMR), including the significance of the activation of the complement system and cytokine pathways in order to effectively and aggressively institute treatment
  • Discuss existing and emerging treatment options for AMR, including anti-complement and anti-cytokine strategies
  • Select appropriate therapeutic agents and protocols to treat AMR and prolong allograft survival

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of clinicians who manage antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) in patients who undergo solid organ transplant (SOT).
