New Directions in Angioedema: A Focus on Pathogenesis and Classification

Complimentary Continuing Education Newsletter for Healthcare Professionals

VOORHEES, N.J., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Evaluation and management of patients with urticaria (hives) and angioedema can be challenging, as both disorders can be caused by a number of immunologic and nonimmunologic mechanisms. Accurate diagnosis is further hindered by the seemingly identical presentation of angioedema subtypes. It is important that healthcare professionals who treat angioedema and urticaria understand the pathophysiology of each angioedema subgroup in order to properly identify and treat acute angioedema episodes.

To address the need for current education on angioedema, Robert Michael Educational Institute LLC (RMEI) and Postgraduate Institute for Medicine (PIM) are jointly sponsoring a three-part complimentary continuing education newsletter series. This series, which is certified for physicians and nurse practitioners, is supported by an educational grant from ViroPharma Incorporated. New Directions in Angioedema: A Focus on Pathogenesis and Classification is the first newsletter of this series.

Timothy Craig, MD, Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics at the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania, and Aleena Banerji, MD, Instructor of Medicine and Assistant Training Program Director at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, comprise the editorial board for this newsletter series.
