Transcription

1 Antimicrobial Therapy in Immunocompromised and Critically Ill Patients: Management and Perspectives Palazzo dei Congressi - LUGANO May 2014 BACKGROUND The incidence and diagnosis of viral, bacterial and fungal infections in the critically ill and immunocompromised patients has dramatically increased and the number of new, immunocompromising therapies is also rapidly growing. New drugs for the treatment of invasive fungal infections have joined the existing therapeutic armamentarium, yet the mortality caused by Candida spp., mould infections is still unacceptably high. Known and emerging viral infections are also attracting the interest of most specialists and, despite the introduction of new diagnostic tools, they are still causing serious problems in the ICU and complicate the daily management of immunocompromised patients. Finally, the increasing number of infections caused by multidrug resistant bacteria jeopardizes the success of therapeutic interventions. Treatment of infections in the critically ill and in the classical immunocompromised patient is fraught with a number of open questions. The symposium aims at updating these issues and providing a discussion forum for clinicians and microbiologists actively involved in the treatment of ICU and immunocompromised patients, including haemato-oncologic diseases, solid organ and bone marrow transplantation and autoimmune diseases. OBJECTIVES The symposium will discuss common issues and controversies related to the diagnosis and treatment of infections in critically ill and immunocompromised patients, to provide real-life experience that can easily translate into daily clinical practice. SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE: Enos Bernasconi, MD Christian Garzoni, MD Paolo Grossi, MD Oscar Marchetti, MD Orlando Petrini, PhD Francesco Scaglione, MD
