Clin Imm Sōsh: The CIS Newsletter
Clin Imm Sōsh: Pointing you in the right direction
Welcome to Clin Imm Sōsh, the quarterly e-newsletter from CIS! We like to keep you up to date on CIS's projects and committees, as well as let you know what's new on the website and social media.
Message from the CIS President, Dr. Jordan Orange
It is a true honor to be writing to you as the current President of the CIS, but more importantly to be a President who is a direct product of the CIS educational mission. I was a student in the first CIS PID Summer School 15 years ago and will soon be followed by Troy Torgerson and Sergio Rosenzweig who were also students in that Summer School. Overall, it speaks to some of the amazing things that CIS is doing to advance our specialty and field. Of note, applications are currently open for the 15th CIS PID summer school to be held in Miami, Florida, October 6th-9th; please do nominate your very best trainees and junior faculty for this important educational and career development opportunity.
2016 Annual Meeting
Thank you for joining us in Boston for the 2016 CIS Annual Meeting. To relive all of the excitement read our Annual Meeting Recap for details that you might have missed!
Following Infants with Low Lymphocytes program
As discussed at the 2016 CIS annual meeting, the “Following Infants with Low Lymphocytes: FILLing the Gap" registry is now online https://usidnet.org/fill/. The CIS, in collaboration with the United States Immunodeficiency Network and the Jeffrey Modell Foundation have now established a registry to longitudinally collect key clinical and laboratory data, including diagnosis, treatment and outcomes for infants found to have T cell lymphopenia (TCL) as detected by newborn screening using the T cell receptor excision circle assay. This resource will make possible determination of the relative frequency and natural history of TCL as well as the other known causes of low lymphocytes. This registry will collect longitudinal (retrospective and prospective) clinical and immunological data that is already being generated in the course of clinical care to define the status over time of this group of infants and others born with low T cells including the diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic measures adopted for these infants.
