Dr. Sabine Altrichter: Chronic spontaneous urticaria – Autoimmunity as pathophysiological principle in this disease 01.03.2019
Dr. Sabine Altrichter, Department of Dermatology, Venerology and Allergology Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin

Chronic urticaria is regarded as mast cell driven disease. But why and how do the mast cells become activated? What do we know so far? What have we learned from recent therapeutic advances in this disease? We will discuss current pathophysiological concepts and have a brief look at other inflammatory diseases where similar mechanisms could play a role.

Leibniz-Inflammation Lectures

The first interdisciplinary inflammation lectures in Berlin

In the Leibniz inflammatory lectures on chronic inflammatory diseases, two members of the faculty, a clinician and a basic researcher, give a joint lecture on a specific disease. They present the current understanding of pathology and treatment options, each from their own specific perspective.
