Series Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the basic flow of activity in the integrated immune response and identify key cells, cytokines, and receptor ligand pairs that drive the immune response.
  2. Critically appraise highlights from recent peer-reviewed scientific literature on cutting-edge topics in basic and clinical immunology.
  3. Summarize the mechanisms of action of biologic therapeutics and relate it to their effectiveness in indicated disease targets.
  4. Detail the risks of both predictable and unpredictable adverse events associated with biologic therapies.
  5. Explain the concept of immunologic wellness and appraise the evidence on how achieving it can be beneficial for overall health in the setting of immunologic diseases.
  6. Incorporate recommendations in clinical practice regarding diet, exercise, and mind/body techniques to achieve immunologic health.

Target Audience

These activities are directed to rheumatologists, dermatologists, gastroenterologists, allergists, clinical immunologists, and specialists in infectious disease, integrative medicine, primary care and other health care professionals caring for patients with immunologic diseases.
