Moderator

Miguel Regueiro earned his bachelor’s degree at the University of Pennsylvania, his medical degree at Drexel (Hahnemann) University and completed his internal medicine internship, residency, and clinical and research fellowship training in gastroenterology at Harvard Medical School’s Beth Israel Hospital.

Dr. Regueiro was Professor of Medicine and Clinical and Translational Science at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine from 2000 to 2018. There he served as the IBD Clinical Medical Director, Senior Medical Lead of Specialty Medical Homes, was Professor with Tenure, and honored as the UPMC Endowed Chair for Patient Centered Care in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases.

Dr. Regueiro is currently the Chair of the Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology and Chair of the Digestive Disease and Surgery Institute at Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. He serves as Medical Co- Chair of Digestive Disease and Surgical Institute Research Governance committee and is Professor of Medicine at the Lerner College of Medicine, Cleveland Clinic.

Dr. Regueiro’s main clinical and research interest is Inflammatory Bowel Diseases with a focus on the natural course of these diseases and postoperative prevention of Crohn’s disease. Recently, he has been involved in transformative medicine initiatives and developing new models of healthcare, including the first-of-its kind specialty medical home for IBD. Dr. Regueiro is investigating alternative models of care in population-based health that integrates patients, payers, providers, pharmaceutical industry, and other facets of healthcare delivery around these novel programs.

Statement of Need

Interleukin (IL)-23 has been identified as a main driver of inflammation in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and has been identified as a target for highly effective advanced therapies. While all agents in the anti-IL-23 class of monoclonal antibodies (mABs) neutralize IL-23 by binding the Fab fragment to the P19 domain, the differences in Fc fragment structure may impact potency and clinical efficacy. Fc structure differences have been shown to impact binding of different agents to CD64 positive myelocytes, a main source of IL-23 in active IBD.

In this CME Outfitters livestream symposium, expert faculty will review the role of the IL-23/Th-17 pathway in the pathogenesis of IBD and utilize animated 3-D models to illustrate differences in agents in the anti-IL-23 class that may have potential therapeutic implications. Learners will be guided through an evaluation of the potential clinical implications of CD64 receptor binding by anti-IL-23 mAbs in IBD treatment, as well as the clinical evidence supporting the benefits of these IBD treatment features.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, learners will be able to better:

  • Evaluate the role of various pro-inflammatory cytokines in driving inflammation in the pathogenesis of IBD
  • Identify the role of the IL-23/Th17 inflammatory axis in IBD pathogenesis
  • Assess the potential clinical implications of the ability of anti-IL-23 agents used in the treatment of IBD to bind to CD64 receptors on IL-23-producing cells
