Description of CME Course
This is a two-day colloquium that will include both the 10th Annual UC Irvine Neuromuscular Colloquium and on day two the 6th Annual UC Irvine Pathology Colloquium.
The program has been developed and tailored based on areas of new disease-related information identified by the Planning Committee with further input from the faculty panel and recent advances in the literature relating to neuromuscular diseases. As an example, recent successful trials have led to FDA approval of new drugs for the treatment of Myasthenia Gravis, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
The recent approval of novel immune modulatory therapy in Myasthenia Gravis has opened up new possibilities in terms of time of intervention as well as treatment outcomes for disease exacerbations, crises, and even refractory disease. This has led to several new investigational therapies in the pipeline for the coming year and these therapies are likely to eventually lead to treatment paradigm changes.
