This concise and timely webinar brings you the unique opportunity to gain insights into where we are at with CNI-free immunosuppressive regimes for renal transplantation and how new predictive tools can help achieve long-term kidney graft survival.

An unmissable opportunity to gain expert perspectives on renal transplantation

Together our experts, Professor Julio Pascal, Professor Stefan Berger, Professor Helio Tedesco Silva and Dr Olivier Aubert discuss the current unmet needs for renal transplantation and the importance of moving towards a CNI-free immunosuppressive treatment regime for achieving long-term renal transplant survival. The clinical data and guideline recommendations that support new immunosuppressive strategies that enable longer survival of renal transplants will be discussed, and an overview of the progress and value of predictive clinical decision support systems will be given.

Our experts will also come together for a Q&A discussion, where they will discuss a realistic patient case study and answer questions. Don’t miss out!
