The Immunosuppression Balancing Act: Preserving Long-Term Allograft Function for Optimal Patient Outcomes

The current goal of transplant medicine and immunology is to develop strategies to extend the life and functionality of every allograft. Outcomes of renal and liver transplantation have improved; yet, allograft loss remains a substantial problem associated with increased morbidity, mortality, and costs. Education to transplant clinicians about evaluating all aspects of post-transplant care, including regular monitoring, can lead to a reduction in allograft dysfunction or loss. In addition, ...

Integrated Care Strategies to Address the Impact of Residual Symptoms on Functional Outcomes in MDD

Depression is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. It affects individuals, families, businesses, and society and is common in patients seeking care in the primary care setting. Approximately 55% of patients will respond to treatment with the initial antidepressant. Yet, even in those patients who respond to treatment and achieve remission, residual symptoms can significantly inhibit functionality and increase the risk of relapse and recurrence. Despite these challenges, MDD ca...

Deep Remission, Top-Down Treatment Strategies and Real-World Data in Patients with UC: An Interactive and Innovative Case Series

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is an inflammatory bowel disease with a progressive course characterized by exacerbations and remissions. Traditionally, the goals of therapy for UC have entailed resolution of clinical symptoms such as rectal bleeding, bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramps, pain, and fatigue. However, treatment goals for UC have evolved to a treat-to-target strategy with targets such as mucosal/endoscopic healing, histologic healing, or deep remission (i.e., clinical, biochemical, and endo...

An Evolving Treatment Landscape for Inflammatory Disease: Debating Interchangeability, Efficacy, and Safety of Biosimilars

Health care spending has grown much faster than the rest of the economy, and this trend is seemingly unsustainable.1 Biologic agents are highly effective against inflammatory diseases, but may be restricted by many health care plans due to cost. Biosimilars offer a potential solution as a cost-effective alternative to biologic agents. Biosimilars have been available in Europe since 2005. In the United States, the first biosimilar monoclonal antibody, infliximab, was approved for rheumatoid art...
