Better Education on Glomerular Disease: Improving Diagnosis and Treatment of C3 Glomerulopathy

To participate in this activity, please:

Nephrology specialists Carla Nester, MD, and Andrew Bomback, MD, delve into the rare and difficult-to-diagnose disease state of C3 glomerulopathy, a membranoproliferative form of glomerulonephritis. Recent guideline updates and recommended clinical management strategies for the treatment of glomerular disease are reviewed. In addition, the specific pathophysiology, clinical features and diagnosis of C3 glomerulopathy are discussed, as well as the global patient burden of disease and concomitant disease states caused by complement dysregulation. Insight into the historical management of C3 glomerulopathy and targeted therapies currently undergoing evaluation in late clinical trials are provided. Finally, patient resources, supportive measures and clinical perspective on the future of C3 glomerulopathy management are discussed by the faculty.
