Improving Cellular Therapy for Primary Immune Deficiency Diseases: Recognition, Diagnosis and Management

Thursday, May 21, 2009 - Friday, May 22, 2009
EPN, 6130 Executive Blvd., Rockville, MD

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.
