Non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis (NCFBE) is a progressive pulmonary condition that leads to bronchial wall damage causing permanent airway dilation, which is primarily due to neutrophil-driven inflammation stemming from chronic or recurrent infection. In patients with bronchiectasis, symptoms such as persistent cough, dyspnea, excessive sputum production, and recurrent pulmonary infections can worsen the disease and lead to impaired quality of life.
This CME satellite symposium, presented by National Jewish Health, will focus on assessment of NCFBE, including the disease burden, unmet needs, associated patient risk factors, comorbidities, and approaches to reduce delay in diagnosis. Attendees will become more adept at assessing patients’ natural history, clinical course, and disease progression. They will deepen their understanding of the role of neutrophilic inflammation and neutrophil serine protease inflammation (NSP) in NCFBE and learn about current and emerging treatment options to improve patient outcomes in NCFBE.
At the completion of the activity, attendees will be able to:
1. Review bronchiectasis burden, etiologies, and risk factors.
2. Apply best practices for early diagnosis of bronchiectasis.
3. Identify the role of neutrophilic inflammation in patients with bronchiectasis.
4. Select best options for management of bronchiectasis.
