Managing Individuals With Eosinophilic Granulomatosis With Polyangiitis (EGPA)

The goal of this educational initiative is to improve the knowledge and ability of clinicians who may encounter individuals with EGPA to recognize, manage, and treat patients with EGPA. Unfortunately, many clinicians may encounter individuals who are living with undiagnosed Eosinophilic Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis (EGPA). Although these patients could gain benefit from treatment, damage has often already occurred by the time a diagnosis is made and patients have unnecessarily suffered ...

Rare Disease Clinical Trials

When caring for an individual with a rare disease who has exhausted standard treatments or for whom there are no treatments available, exploration of clinical trials, and possibly expanded access programs, may be warranted. However, many care team members and their patients may not know where to begin with these options. In addition, a number of barriers to participation may exist for both the patient and the care team. Clinicians caring for people with rare diseases, therefore, would benefit ...

Optimizing the Clinical Outcomes of Patients With Immune Thrombocytopenia

STATEMENT OF NEED Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is a heterogeneous disorder with variable clinical features that range from asymptomatic thrombocytopenia to bothersome bruising to life-threatening intracranial hemorrhage. The lack of specific diagnostic criteria remains an important unmet need. Bleeding events are the most common clinical manifestation of ITP but are unpredictable with current laboratory testing. Many patients do not exhibit significant bleeding even in the setting of sever...

New Clinical Perspectives in the Management of Myelofibrosis

STATEMENT OF NEED Myelofibrosis is a rare type of myeloproliferative neoplasm—a heterogenous group of hematopoietic disorders—that affects approximately 13,000 individuals in the United States. As symptoms do not typically manifest in early stages, patients with myelofibrosis often present with advanced disease. The presence of comorbidities precludes most from allogeneic stem cell transplant, the only potentially curative treatment option available. Due to the dearth of effective treat...

Current Standards and Best Practices in the Management of Tumor Lysis Syndrome

STATEMENT OF NEED Tumor lysis syndrome (TLS) is a rare, potentially life-threatening oncologic emergency typically associated with chemotherapy-induced tumor cell death in which potassium, phosphate, and nucleic acids are released into the bloodstream. This release of intracellular materials results in severe metabolic abnormalities such as hyperuricemia and hyperphosphatemia, which may cause acute renal injury, and hypokalemia and hypocalcemia, which may cause seizures, neuromuscular sympt...

Current Challenges and New Opportunities in Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant

STATEMENT OF NEED Hematopoietic stem cell transplant is a potentially curative therapy for patients with hematologic malignancies. There are 2 primary types of HSCT: autologous, where the cells are taken from the patient, and allogeneic, where the cells come from a matched sibling donor or an unrelated donor. Advances in HSCT include the introduction of reduced-intensity conditioning regimens that allow transplant in older patients and alternative graft sources that afford a donor for nearl...

Challenges of Diagnosing and Caring for an Individual with Gaucher Disease

Although making a proper diagnosis can sometimes be a challenge even for common illnesses, in cases of patients who present with a rare disease such as Gaucher disease, properly diagnosing the disorder is especially challenging.

Although these individuals can gain some benefit from treatment, irreversi...

STATEMENT OF NEED Gastric cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. In the US, an estimated 27,510 new cases of gastric cancer are diagnosed annually, and 11,140 people die of the disease. Despite advances in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, due to the molecular heterogeneity of gastric cancer, prognosis remains poor. The 5-year survival rate for all stages is 31%, with only 5% of those diagnosed with distant-stage disease surviving longer than 5 years. Given...
