Anterior Segment Section Symposium: Biologic Therapy: Applications in Anterior Segment Disease
Friday, November 9 | 2:00 to 4:00 PM
Biotherapeutics (or biologics), the fastest-growing sector in the pharmaceutical industry, are transforming medicine. These agents are instrumental in the management of autoimmune disorders and certain cancers, but also have multiple and increasing applications in eye care. This course provides an orientation to this class of medications, a discussion of the most commonly prescribed agents in medicine, and applications in ocular disease with a particular emphasis on disorders of the anterior segment.
