Histopathology of Rejection

5.4 - Pathology of pancreas transplants

Presenter: Cinthia, Beskow Drachenberg, , United States
Authors: Cinthia Beskow Drachenberg

[en] The breakthroughs, the taxonomy and agreement between clinicians and pathologists were big in the last 15 years in terms of histopathology and rejection. The Banff working group was decisive in this process.

In this training, we are lucky to have one of the leaders, Mark Haas, who will explain the main aspects.

Since symptom manifestations have particular aspects depending on the organ, we have included a specific approach on some of them.

Finally, the knowledge acquired on molecular characteristics found in biopsies contribute to the diagnosis and are explained by Phil Haloran.

Tenemos la suerte en este curso de que uno de sus protagonistas, Mark Haas, se refiera a aspectos generales.

Dado que las manifestaciones tienen aspectos particulares en cada órgano, hemos incluido una mirada específica de algunos de ellos.

Finalmente se ha desarrollado un conocimiento sobre aspectos moleculares en las biopsias que contribuyen al diagnóstico y que son explicados por Phil Haloran.

O grupo iniciado na cidade de Banff foi determinante nesse processo. Temos o privilégio neste curso da participação de um dos seus protagonistas, Mark Haas, que aborda aspectos gerais da patologia dos transplantes.

Uma vez que as manifestações clínicas possuem aspectos particulares em cada órgãos, incluímos tópicos específicos de alguns deles.

Finalmente, observa-se melhorias no conhecimento sobre os aspectos moleculares da rejeição que contribuem para os diagnósticos, e tais aspectos são abordados por Phil Halloran.
