The design of this activity addresses the needs of clinical immunologists/allergists, dermatologists, gastroenterologists, hematologists, and other specialist clinicians who diagnose or manage nonadvanced systemic mastocytosis (SM).
Nonadvanced SM is a challenging disorder to diagnose and manage due to the heterogeneity of symptoms, anaphylactic triggers, and complicated therapeutic paradigm. In this unique and engaging Call-a-Colleague program, a panel of multidisciplinary faculty will discuss evolving diagnostic and management strategies for nonadvanced SM.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Describe key pathophysiologic processes in SM, with a focus on potential clinical manifestations and the rationale for new targeted therapies
- Evaluate patients with suspected nonadvanced SM to characterize symptoms, disease burden, and results from appropriate ancillary testing
- Discuss clinical trial evidence and appropriate use of targeted treatment options for nonadvanced SM
- Individualize treatment regimens for nonadvanced SM to reflect clinical evidence for efficacy and safety, patient-reported outcomes, and shared clinical decision-making
