Monitoring Kinome Adaptations to Therapy using High Resolution Quantitative Mass Spectrometry

BRAHMS PCT (Procalcitonin): Clinician and Laboratory Perspectives in Sepsis Patient Management and CMS Core Measurements

Tuesday, August 2 | 6 - 7:30pm

Historically, researchers have utilized technologies that allow them to look at single kinases in a relatively linear fashion. Learn how studying the kinome as a whole entity, using additional technologies like high resolution quantitative mass spectrometry, can aide in understanding how tumors may evade current therapies by altering their kinome state. Using this information, learn how clinical translational researchers are investigating new and potentially more effective kinase inhibitor combination therapies for complex diseases like cancer.

Wednesday, August 3 | 7 - 8:30am

The CMS Core Quality Measures for Sepsis are designed to aid in managing patients with severe sepsis and septic shock. This breakfast workshop examines the CMS measures from the perspective of laboratorians, physicians and nurses, and how an on-site Procalcitonin (PCT) assay plays a role in rapidly assessing the risk of progression to sepsis and the patient’s risk for mortality.
