Upcoming In-Person CE Meeting — Summer 2023

Thursday, June 15, 2023 — 6:15pm – 8:30pm

“Verdinexor — A New Oral Treatment Option for Canine Lymphoma”

Presented by: Dr. Julie Kluxdal

This lecture will discuss the novel class of drugs called SINE inhibitors, with emphasis on Laverdia CA-1 (verdinexor). We will review SINE mechanism of action along with a thorough review of the data leading to a reasonable expectation of efficacy and FDA conditional approval of Laverdia-CA1. We will also look at where this new oral option fits into specialty and primary care practice therapies as consideration for future use. The attendee will learn how to properly dose and safely dispense Laverdia-CA1 as well as how to monitor their lymphoma patient on Laverdia-CA1, including how to address any potential adverse events.

Sponsorships for Future Meetings

Sponsor the Next SFVMA Meeting

In order to continue to support our charitable and scholarship funds, and generally maintain the organization (with keeping dues payments reasonable), the Board will continue to seek sponsorships that help to cover the costs of our programs. While we hope to avoid overt endorsement of specific products/services, etc. during the continuing education presentations, we feel it is reasonable to allow the sponsor to distribute marketing materials and to make a brief presentation with regard to promoting their interests in recognition of their generous support.

While we would encourage members-at-large to make announcements regarding new endeavors that would be of interest to the membership, we would kindly ask that promotional materials be limited to those provided by the sponsor organization. Thanks for your understanding!

If you are interested in sponsoring a future meeting, please contact Dr. Brian VanHorn: sfvmapresident@gmail.com
