PROGRAM OVERVIEW

During this symposium, we will provide an overview of the clinical picture of Fabry disease and its natural history. We will continue with guidance for identifying the correlation between genotype and phenotype and the ways it may affect disease progression. To finish we will discuss the current need for individualized patient care and review the emerging treatment landscape via the latest scientific data. Using interactive plenary sessions and selected patient case presentations, our expert panel will encourage the exchange of views and opinions on diagnosing and treating this disease.

AGENDA

Dinner will be available from 6:00–6:30 PM. The scientific session will run from 6:30–8:00 PM and will include the following presentations:

Welcome and introduction

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  1. Recognize that Fabry disease has two major phenotypes: classic and later-onset
  2. Describe the genotype–phenotype correlations and how these may affect disease progression
  3. Recognize that there is large variation in disease symptoms in heterozygous females due to random X-chromosomal inactivation
  4. Explain how an individualized approach to patient care is necessary due to genotype, phenotype, and sex
