We will review the literature and discuss some of the pitfalls associated with implementing treatments. We also look at the future of chronic kidney treatment.

In the second lecture, we will review treatments and outcomes in IMHA/ITP as well as discuss new treatment options. Immune-mediated diseases lead to high rates of morbidity and mortality in our patients. We will examine the literature and standard treatments as well as discuss the goals and benefits of plasmapheresis in these patients.
