Series Learning Objectives

  • Describe the pathogenesis of COVID-19 in patients with immune-mediated inflammatory disease including data on the contributions of both disease-specific factors and targeted therapies for disease progression.

  • Critically appraise the risks and benefits of biologic therapies and JAK inhibitors in all patients with immune mediated inflammatory diseases in the COVID-19 era.

  • Summarize recent revisions to major society guidelines for management of IMIDs as they relate to COVID-19.

  • Describe the research on how COVID-19 may induce or alter autoimmune reactivity in both healthy individuals and patients with pre-existing autoimmune diseases.

  • Describe standards for using monoclonal antibodies in the outpatient management of COVID-19 in high-risk patients with IMIDs.

  • Summarize recent data on COVID-19 vaccine boosters, effects of immunomodulatory therapies, and implications of viral variants in patients with IMIDs.

  • Critically appraise the efficacy and side effect data on agents approved or authorized by the FDA as well as agents showing potential for therapy in critically ill patients with COVID-19 who have inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, or dermatologic disorders.

Target Audience

The educational activity is designed for rheumatologists, dermatologists, infectious disease, as well as allergists, clinical immunologists, dermatologists, gastroenterologists, neurologists, specialists in integrative medicine, primary care and other health care professionals caring for patients with immunologic diseases.
