Advancing Quantitative Measures of Monocyte Response to Infection from Academic Pursuit to Clinical Practice: The Time Is Now
Speaker: Magdalena Czader, M.D., Ph.D.
Monocyte Distribution Width: New Applications as an Early Sepsis Indicator
Speaker: Jailan Osman, M.D.
Emerging Uses: Monocyte Anisocytosis in Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome
in Children and Recovery after Major Burn Injuries
Speaker: Daniel Irimia, M.D., Ph.D.
Abstract: Monocytes are the key component of the innate immune response to infection, exhibiting complex, time-dependent differentiating behavior. Monocytes Distribution Width (MDW), quantitative measure of variability in monocyte morphology, has recently received regulatory clearance for diagnosis of adult sepsis in Emergency Department and has been studied in other patient types, including those emerging in current COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of the session is to connect current understanding of monocyte hematopathology with current evidence and practical aspects of use in the clinical practice across patient presentations.
