    BIOGRAPHY

Abstract
DATE:  October 16, 2018
TIME:   3:00 PM CEST, 6:00 AM PDT
 
This webinar will provide an overview on some pathogens that can be transmitted from mother to fetus during pregnancy (prenatal infections) or delivery (perinatal infections). The most prevalent prenatal infections include: cytomegalovirus, parvovirus B19, rubella virus and Toxoplasma gondii; the perinatal infections include Herpes Simplex Virus 1-2. All these pathogens belong to the TORCH complex and can lead to severe fetal/neonatal anomalies or even loss of life.  
 
This webinar will review the state of congenital TORCH infections, including incidence, importance of early detection, diagnosis, and disease management.
 
Most infections in the mother are asymptomatic and/or accompanied by aspecific symptoms and/or aspecific laboratory findings, as a result clinical diagnosis is unreliable. Therefore, today, viro-microbiological laboratory techniques represent a decisive approach in the management of TORCH infections in pregnancy.
 
Learning Objectives:
  • To review the epidemiology and burden of these infectious diseases in pregnancy and newborns
  • To illustrate the setting of the collaborative diagnostic and clinical pathway for the management of infections in pregnant women and newborns
  • To outline the advantages and limitations of the viro-microbiological diagnosis
  • To describe the measures of prevention and therapy of these infections.
