  • 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM US CT
    Introduction to Rare Genetic Diseases of Obesity
    Rhythm’s Genetic Obesity Learning Development (GOLD) Academy brings together healthcare providers to learn about rare genetic diseases of obesity and the role of the melanocortin-4 receptor pathway in regulating hunger, caloric intake, energy expenditure, and consequently body weight. These physician-led programs are virtual or live and focus on educational topics including distinguishing hyperphagia from other overeating behaviors and key clinical characteristics of rare genetic diseases of obesity. Please join us to learn more about why not all obesity is the same.

    Bringing Stem Cell Therapy Into Neonatology: Experience From Early Phase Clinical Trials

    Chair: Bernard Thebaud, MD, PhD – Ottawa Hospital Research Institute

    While neonatal mortality has significantly decreased over the past decades, long-term morbidity following prematurity or neonatal injury remains a significant problem.
    Cell-based therapies have created much excitement in neonatology based on the promise of organ regeneration. Fueled by promising preclinical studies, first early phase clinical trials have begun using a variety of cells for different indications. While mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) isolated from umbilical cord tissue or cord blood represent the front runner amongst cell-based therapies, the feasibility and safety of human amnion epithelial cells or cord blood derived mononuclear cells are also being explored to prevent lung and brain injury. These are early days for cell-based therapies in neonatology and much remains to be learned about the biology of repair cells, their manufacturing, safe and practical delivery and clinical trial design to optimize their efficacy.
    To improve the efficacy of clinical translation of this disruptive technology, principal investigators of trials on cell-based therapies will share their experience to answer the following questions:
    How to choose the optimal cell or cell-derived product?
    How to monitor safety of cellular biological products in a neonatal setting?
    What are the optimal outcome end-points to assess safety of cell-based interventions?
    What is the optimal target population for early phase trials?
    What are the regulatory requirements?
