Managing immune-mediated disorders, like CIDP or Dermatomyositis, is a complex and evolving topic. In this Industry Therapeutic Update from Octapharma, three specialists will discuss how recent data changed perspectives on an established immunotherapy. The audience will be guided through three interactive presentations:


What Do We Know about the Mechanisms of Action of IVIG in Autoimmune and Neuromuscular Diseases?
Marinos Dalakas (Thomas Jefferson University, PA)
Shedding Light on CIDP and Dermatomyositis – A Deep Dive into the Latest Evidence
Hans Katzberg (University of Toronto, ON)
Optimizing Clinical Practice – From Studies to Patient Cases

To introduce the topic of interest, the diverse mechanisms of action of IVIG will be examined first. The subsequent presentations will be illustrated with data from recent clinical studies and cases of patients suffering from CIDP or Dermatomyositis. The efficacy, safety, and tolerability results will serve as a basis for initiating exchanges with the audience and as valuable elements to optimize daily practice.
