2020 Pediatric Grand Rounds | Thrombotic Microangiopathy (TMA): Repurposing Old Biomarkers for Novel Concepts

September 24, 2020

There is a lack of awareness of Thrombotic Microangiopathy (TMA) and lack of uniform guidelines to identify high risk patients with TMA who will benefit from prompt intervention.

Thrombotic Microangiopathy (TMA) is now recognized as a severe stem cell transplant complication, by recently published prospective studies in children. There are no prospective studies performed in adults so far. New disease biomarkers and new targetable targeted therapies had recently identified that significant improved TMA outcomes in children and are used in selected centers that focus on TMA research. This educational activity summarizes clinical and research study data that will aid in TMA management that can be implemented in clinical practiced at City of Hope with the goal to improve transplant outcomes.
