Autoimmune polyendocrinopathy-candidiasis-ectodermal dystrophy (APECED) is a life-threatening monogenic multiorgan autoimmune syndrome caused by AIRE deficiency that impairs central immune tolerance. In this lecture, Dr. Lionakis will discuss findings from the prospective clinical and research evaluation of ~200 APECED patients enrolled at the NIH Clinical Center and corroborating mechanistic studies in the Aire-deficient mouse model. Collectively, these findings provide novel insights into redefined diagnostic criteria, immunopathogenesis, and targeted therapeutic intervention

Host: Dr. Pere Soler Palacín, Paediatric Infectious Diseases and Immunodeficiencies Unit, Children's Hospital and Woman's Hospital. Head of group, Infection and immunity in pediatric patients. Vall Hebron Institut de Recerca
