Sobi Programme at ISSAID Periodic Congress

This evening’s symposium will bring together a panel of leaders in the management of FMF who will inform on treatment paradigms that consider needs and expectations of patients.

Following the insightful presentations of the faculty members, there will be a live panel discussion, which will focus on FMF and the role anti-IL-1 therapy plays in its management. There will also be an opportunity for you to ask questions on this topic.

We hope that you enjoy the presentations and actively participate in what promises to be an interesting and lively program.
