1st International Workshop on "Neurology of Behcet's Disease"

1st International Workshop on "Neurology of Behcet's Disease"

England in the first half of 2009


Dear Colleague

The 1st International Workshop on "Neurology of Behcet's Disease" is to be held in England in the first half of 2009.

It is hoped that this workshop will address all major issues of the neurological manifestation of BD with the possibility of reaching a "Consensus" on the the main diagnostic and therapeutic issues in Neuro-BD which might be of help to potential neurologists/clinicians dealing with BD.

Neurologists who are interested in attending this workshop, presenting a work or willing to discuss
relevant issues are welcome to contact me.

Best Regards;

Adnan Al-Araji FRCP

Genetics of MS and other Leukoencephalopathies

Genetics of MS and other Leukoencephalopathies

Istanbul, Turkey
September 14-15, 2007

Knowledge in the genetics of severe neurological diseases has seen remarkable progress over the last few years. There are accumulating evidences that generic factors modulate not only the susceptibility to a given disease but also the response to the treatment. The availability of new genetic tools associated with the elucidation of the whole human genome sequence have led to considerable expectations. During this period characterized by a rapid evolution in the acquisition of new knowledge, it is indispensable for researchers and clinicians to be able to share information and experiences to interact.
The leukoencephalopathies include both monogenic and multigenic diseases.

The aim of this congress is provide a forum where researchers and/or clinicians who address the problematics involved in the treatment of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and Alzheimers, may gather to review their respective experiences and acquire new knowledge that can assist identifying common aspects, as well as pathologic differences, to assist reaching optimal and innovative therapeutic approaches.
