|Title||Immunosuppression tailored for beta cell replacement|
|Lectures||Metabolic Instruction of Immunity: immunometabolism and beta cell replacement
Targeting CTLA4 to minimize CNI in pancreas or islet transplantation
New immunosuppressive drugs : what’s in the pipeline ?
Tolerance induction in beta cell replacement
|Why you should attend||Most (if not all) immunosuppressive drugs currently used in solid organ transplantation are ill-adapted to recipients of beta cell transplants because they are either directly toxic to the graft and/or have major interferences with glycemic control.|
|What you will learn||How drugs impacting glucose metabolism impact the immune response
What is the potential of new immunosuppressive drugs for beta-cell replacement
How long will it take to induce tolerance to allogenic beta cells?
