On June 21st, 2018, the Delaware Valley Society of Health-System Pharmacists (DVSHP) held a happy hour and dinner social event at the Distrito Restaurant in Philadelphia, PA. The evening began with a continuing education (CE) presentation on “Protein-based Therapeutic Immunogenicity: Clinical Implications” presented by Terry Kressaty, PharmD. Dr. Kressaty highlighted the many factors that may influence the immunogenicity of therapeutic proteins such as patient genetic background, protein type, disease type, amongst others. With the rise in bioequivalent alternatives and the development of targeted immunotherapy, it is imperative for healthcare professionals to determine means of reducing immunogenicity of therapeutic proteins to provide exceptional patient care. Following the CE presentation, participants were able to enjoy a variety of Mexican small plates and light refreshments while networking with other pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and student pharmacists within the Philadelphia area. The DVSHP would like to thank Dr. Kressaty for her informative presentation as well as all of the participants who made this evening enjoyable.
