$0.00 Activity descriptionApproximately 12 people die each day waiting for a kidney transplant while about 10 kidneys are discarded daily. A recent report that focused on decreasing the number of discarded kidneys provides the first systematic nationwide approach to reducing kidney discards. The “Report of National Kidney Foundation Consensus Conference to Decrease Kidney Discards” is the result of a year-long effort with leading transplantation experts in the United States devoted to solving the kidney utilization problem.
Blood/Marrow Transplant for Autoimmune Disease
  • Transplantation
  • Disease Management
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Activity descriptionAutoimmune diseases are caused by an overactive immune system that targets the patient’s own cells. Most individuals with autoimmune disorders respond to conventional drug therapies; however, conventional drug therapies are not curative. Although not all autoimmune diseases can be treated with a blood/marrow transplant (BMT), the primary concept underlying use of a BMT for these diseases is that ablating and “resetting” the immune system can alter the disease process.
