Talk Summary:
In the last five years, the introduction of cellular therapies has revolutionized the management of haematological cancers. The success of this approach has encouraged others to seek novel means to treat a variety of critical illness syndromes. In this talk, we will review the current state of cell-based immune modulation for ARDS and sepsis. We will address the classification and biology of investigational cell therapies, alongside a discussion of the challenges associated with scaling them for widespread clinical use.

Learning Objectives:
By the end of this lecture the attendee will be able to:

  1. Appreciate the spectrum of available cellular therapies
  2. Describe the biology of cell therapies in the context of critical illness
  3. Discuss the current evidence base for cell therapies and be aware of important ongoing trials
  4. Understand the challenges associated with delivering cell therapy in the clinic

This lecture is equal to 1 CPD Point, 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit, and 1 CE Contact Hour.
