They came from Switzerland, Mexico, Turkey and the United Kingdom – just to name a few. The CSL Behring Academy: Immunology recently gathered almost 300 medical experts from 30+ countries for a two-day virtual event to share knowledge about primary immunodeficiencies (PID) and hereditary angioedema (HAE), a rare disease that causes dangerous swelling episodes.
A faculty of international experts shared their insights, including four authors of the global HAE guidelines of the World Allergy Organization (WAO). Live panels enabled participants to ask questions in real time.
All sessions were recorded and will continue to be available on-demand on the homepage www.cslbehringacademy.com. Health care professionals who couldn’t make it to the event can still register and obtain access to the recordings and additional downloads, including scientific posters and supplementary educational presentations.
Topics covered during the event included:
- Best practices to increase the diagnosis rate for PID and decrease the diagnostic delay
- Special challenges in managing PID patients during the COVID-19 pandemic situation
- Best clinical practice in managing HAE.
