Best of FSR Annual Meeting 2020: Immunology Bootcamp – Immunology 101

The hallmarks of immune-mediated inflammatory diseases (IMIDs) result from the intricate interplay of cells, cytokines, and other components of the immune system. Similar pathology underlies related rheumatic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, axial spondyloarthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and giant cell arteritis. Understanding the immunopathology of these diseases is essential to understanding the mechanisms of action through which different medications exert their effects. Another emerging trend in rheumatology is the identification and management of immune-related adverse events associated with new cancer immunotherapies; however, providers lack experience in managing these conditions. In this educational activity, Dr. Leonard Calabrese discusses the latest on the pathogenesis and treatments of IMIDs.
