In this webcast, several types of medication-associated injuries are discussed. These include injury associated with many common medications and some associated with novel immune-related chemotherapy medications, including those targeting PD-L1 and CTLA4. Also discussed are several polymers that can be encountered in gastrointestinal samples, including bile acid sequestrants, sevelamer, and sodium polystyrene sulfonate. These medications will be discussed in the context of the diseases that they can mimic. A discussion of injury associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is also included.
After attending this session, participants will be able to:
- Describe key patterns of injury to the tubular gastrointestinal tract associated with immune-mediated treatments.
- Describe crystalline structures that are medications.
- Note patterns of medication-associated injury that can mimic disease processes.
