Primary Immune Deficiency Treatment Consortium (PIDTC) Scientific Workshop, Thursday, May 01, 2014 - Saturday, May 03, 2014
Location: Seattle, WA
Description: The first three PIDTC Annual Scientific Workshops beginning in 2011 focused on critical topics for patients with SCID, Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome (WAS) and Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD). Over 2012 and 2013, the Workshop has seen participation increase by more than 25% with a significant portion consisting of trainees and junior faculty interested in PID. We have also seen increasing participation from European colleagues resulting in the recent commitment to collaborate on PIDTC’s natural history study in CGD. Further discussion with European colleagues is underway to collaborate on PIDTC’s study of outcomes for patients with SCID who received HCT and have survived 25 years or more. Finally, the Workshops have facilitated the development of the first ever prospective multicenter intervention trial for newborns with SCID.
Improving Cellular Therapy for Primary Immune Deficiency Diseases: Recognition, Diagnosis and Management, Thursday, May 21, 2009 - Friday, May 22, 2009
Location: EPN, 6130 Executive Blvd., Rockville, MD
Description: The first objective of this conference was to facilitate continued discussion and team building of pediatric hematopoietic cell transplant physicians and pediatric immunologists to work together to develop a North American consortium for treatment of children with PID. The workshop of May 2008 set in motion an important collaborative effort. This new workshop focused on challenging aspects of SCID/CID not previously addressed. Other objectives were to (2) conduct a survey of current practices in the workup and management of children with SCID/CID in preparation for HCT, (3) identify questions for future clinical research by utilizing the results of the survey, and (4) develop best current practice parameters (or guidelines) in this area. The document will be published in a respected peer-reviewed journal.
