Biologics: when to start them and when to stop.

April 17, 2019

Dr Kerri Purdy speaks with Dr Perry Grewal, a dermatologist involved in clinical trials in Edmonton Alberta. They cover when to start and when to stop biologics and address specific questions from dermatology residents such as:

-- How long do I have to wait before initiating a biologic in a patient with latent TB

-- Should I hold a biologic for surgery?

-- How do you start a biologic in a woman who wants to get pregnant, is pregnant, or is breastfeeding?

This episode offers an excellent opportunity for residents to hear from an expert who is frequently an invited speaker on biologics at conferences.

In a nutshell, this episode is a perfect example of what this podcast series is all about!
