On behalf of the Organizing Committee under the Chairmanship of Prof. Raj. N. Kalaria, from the Institute for Ageing and Health at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, we invite you to register for The Second International Conference on Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy in United Kingdom.
With the help of an international faculty we have planned an exciting and expanded scientific and clinical program. Some of the topics that will be discussed are:
Biological aspects of CAA/Potential targets for therapy
Amyloid ß production, toxicity and fibrillogenesis
ApoE and Aß
Vascular inflammation/cytokines in CAA
Vessel breakdown/interaction with atherosclerosis
Animal models for CAA
Therapeutic approaches to CAA
CAA and clinical diseases
Epidemiology / Familial forms
Diagnosis / Imaging
Pathophysiology – Recent advances
Current treatment and prevention
Foundation for clinical trials in CAA
Diagnosis and outcome markers
Lessons from stroke prevention trials
World-reknowned international leaders of the amyloid and stroke fields have already confirmed speaking engagements for this conference. We will initiate the Conference with a leading scientist on the international scene; Dr. Peter St-George-Hyslop from Toronto, Canada. Speakers will present emerging research and explore new directions.
As in the previous Conference, there will be ample opportunity for interaction between all participants including scientists, clinicians and industrial collaborators. We encourage you to submit an abstract.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
Prof. Raj N. Kalaria,
