The ISN, in partnership with the International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA) and Dr. Rukshana Shroff, Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, UK, has developed a case-based online teaching program, “Grand Rounds in Pediatric Nephrology,” to support the training needs of active Sister Renal Centers (SRC) pairs and other centers in LMICs in light of restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Advances in genetic testing has accelerated the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment options for many of the most common conditions in pediatric nephrology. Confirmation of a defect may aid in prognosticating the clinical course throughout the pediatric life course including pre- & post transplantation, obviate the need for renal biopsy, avoidance of unnecessary immunosuppression, and encourage counselling, screening of siblings, and antenatal diagnosis as in congenital nephrotic syndrome. Identifying genotype-phenotype correlations may direct precision-targeted treatment and new agent development.
This webinar will show how advances in genetic testing have accelerated the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment options for many of the most common conditions in pediatric nephrology.
Confirmation of a defect may help guide the clinical course of pediatric treatment including pre- and post-transplantation, avoid renal biopsy and unnecessary immunosuppression, and encourage counseling, sibling screening, and antenatal diagnosis as in congenital nephrotic syndrome.
