|Abstract Submission Date: May 01, 2009|
The symposium will be the first special meeting fully meant to discuss the state-of-the-art and perspectives of the new and quite promising method of multiple sclerosis treatment â€“ high dose immunosuppressive therapy + autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. It intends to share the newly acquired knowledge in the field, to discuss challenges and perspectives of the method, and to develop collaborative projects. The topics to be covered within the symposium include:
â€¢ Regimens of conditioning: Immunoablation or immunosupression?
â€¢ Types of transplantation: autologous or allogenic?
â€¢ Posttransplant immunological reconstitution
â€¢ Side effects
â€¢ Outcome measures: clinical, imaging, patient-reported outcomes
â€¢ Posttransplant neurorehabilitation
â€¢ Long-term follow-up results
â€¢ Proposals for cooperative studies
Neurologists, immunologists, transplantologists, hematolosits, specialists in stem cell research are invited to participate in the Symposium.
1 March 2009 - Deadline for abstract submission
1 April 2009 - Deadline for early registration
