“D” Is for Diagnosis: Solving the Mystery of Lysosomal Storage Disorders - November 18, 2020


Wednesday, November 18, 2020

Live, Interactive Virtual Webcast!

Scientific Session: 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM EST

Overview

Lysosomal storage disorders (LSDs) are inherited metabolic disorders characterized by enzyme deficiencies that affect the function of lysosomes. LSDs have diverse clinical manifestations with multiorgan involvement and insidious onset. Symptoms are nonspecific and progressive, based on the affected organs. Although LSDs are rare, they have catastrophic and life-altering effects for patients; to improve patient outcomes in these patient populations, it is imperative that clinicians integrate the newest research and guidelines into practice to ensure evidence-based selection of therapy and appropriate management of care. This educational program will discuss the latest data, share perspectives and best practices, and forecast applications of key clinical challenges and questions regarding identification of rare LSDs, including Fabry disease, Pompe disease, mucopolysaccharide storage disease type 1, Niemann-Pick disease (types A and B), and Gaucher disease.

  • Define the disease manifestations and clinical implications of LSDs
  • Distinguish key differentiating signs and symptoms of each LSD to ensure accurate and timely diagnosis
  • Apply recent clinical trial data in the context of individual patient care for improved outcomes in patients with LSDs
  • Recognize patient- and therapy-specific factors that may impact medication adherence
  • Integrate knowledge of case-based challenges into clinical practice for the diagnosis and prognosis of LSDs
