Heather Zwickey, PhD; Erik Lundquist, MD; Annalouise O’Connor, PhD
This course helps clinicians understand how common viral infections can have long-term consequences carried out by the immune system. You will learn how lytic (actively replicating) and latent (quiescent) viral infections can raise the risk of autoimmune conditions, cancers, myocardial infarctions, and stroke. We will outline how to assess patient risk, and understand the current limitations of laboratory measures. You will understand how to intervene with specific nutrients and bioactives such as specialized pro-resolving mediators, probiotics, and phytochemicals to modulate the immune response. You will learn from case examples what treatment implementation looks like in the real world, including challenges to managing postviral syndromes.
