10th Symposium for Clinicians and Researchers - Juvenile Dermatomyositis


The 10th Annual Cure JM Medical Symposium in partnership with Duke University happened May 13th, 2023, virtually, with presentations from world-leading researchers and clinicians on advancements in basic research, translational studies, and best practice clinical care in juvenile dermatomyositis.

For clinicians, researchers, and healthcare professionals unable to attend the event, we are honored to share the full virtual symposium recording. This video features presentations in order, with the recording separating each presentation topic into YouTube chapters.

The Potential of JAKs in Fighting JM

In our June 2024 “Ask the Doc” Town Hall, Dr. Julie Paik joins in a Q&A session to shed light on what JAK inhibitors are, how they work in JM, when parents might consider discussing JAKs as a treatment option, and the pros and cons of their use.

The Potential of CAR-T Therapy in Myositis.

The Very Real Potential of CAR-T Therapy in Myositis

We expected to hear promising news about the potential for CAR-T therapy to treat myositis at the Global Conference on Myositis (GCOM).

What we heard was more than promising—it was astounding.

What if I told you that there was a therapy that would “reset” the immune system—virtually eliminating the autoimmune response in myositis that causes inflammation, pain, muscle weakness, and other JM conditions of which we are all too familiar.
