Although renal transplantation has become a potentially life-saving treatment for those with renal failure, chronic or late renal graft rejection has been a leading cause of renal graft failure. Management of chronic active antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR) and resulting transplant glomerulopathy are responsible for most cases of chronic graft rejection. In this uniquely designed activity, a dynamic panel of multidisciplinary clinical experts, along with a patient with a history of ABMR, will discuss factors that leads to ABMR. The experts will take you through the importance of Banff diagnostic criteria, along with emerging targeted therapeutic approaches and ongoing clinical trials. The expert panel discussions will provide an opportunity for you to learn how to incorporate newer treatment approaches into the care of patients with ABMR.
