This podcast might not actually kill you, but it covers so many things that can. Each episode tackles a different disease, from its history, to its biology, and finally, how scared you need to be. Ecologists and epidemiologists Erin Welsh and Erin Allmann Updyke make infectious diseases acceptable fodder for dinner party conversation and provide the perfect cocktail recipe to match.

Recent clinical developments have transformed the management of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and have the potential to increase access to transplants and improve post-HCT outcomes. These advances are centered on the emergence and continued research of several novel modalities, including the BTK inhibitor ibrutinib, JAK inhibitor ruxolitinib, and the T-cell co-stimulation blocking agent abatacept, as well as additional novel strategies being tested in a range of acute and chronic GVHD settings. In this activity from the 2022 Tandem meetings, our expert panelists distill the current evidence on novel therapeutics in the prevention and treatment of GVHD; throughout, they illustrate how and when to integrate novel therapeutics into care, provide guidance on how to prepare for emerging strategies, and offer practical takeaways on the changing nature of GVHD management. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Discuss current evidence supporting the use of novel therapeutics as prophylactic or treatment options for acute or chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) in the post-transplant setting, including JAK and BTK inhibitors, T-cell blocking agents, α1-antitrypsin, and ROCK inhibitors, among others, Develop management plans informed by evidence and practice guidelines that incorporate novel therapeutics into the management of acute GVHD, Integrate novel and emerging therapies into management plans for the management of chronic GVHD, including novel combinatorial strategies and/or options for second-line management.
