Advances in™ Transplant: Identifying and Managing EBV-Associated Post-Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder

Release Date: June 30, 2021
Expiration Date: June 30, 2022

Activity Overview

This online educational activity is designed to provide expert interpretation of new and emerging data on the treatment of posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLD), with a forward-looking perspective on how new and novel agents might impact clinical practice. This information is presented in a multimedia format, and includes a series of video interviews with expert thought leaders integrated into text-based elements. The PTLD comprise a broad spectrum of heterogenous lymphoproliferative lesions that arise in immunocompromised individuals after solid organ transplant (SOT) or allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (ASCT). PTLD is one of the most devastating complications of an organ transplant. The optimal therapy has, until recently, remained elusive. However, immunotherapies may provide an eagerly awaited alternative for the treatment of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-positive PTLD in the near future.
