ENDO 2006 offers breaking research on the metabolic syndrome, obesity, hormones in women and more

This year's annual meeting of The Endocrine Society, ENDO 2006, is packed with appearances from powerful medical leaders from top medical associations plus the latest scientific developments as the world's leading endocrinologists gather to unravel medical mysteries and debate some of medicine's most highly controversial topics.

In addition to releasing breaking science on topics such as the controversial Metabolic Syndrome, male osteoporosis, endocannabinoids (the agent in marijuana that causes the "munchies") and new drug therapies for obesity, ENDO 2006 will feature:

  • Presentation from NIH Director, Dr. Elias Zerhouni entitled, "NIH at the Crossroads: Myths, Realities and Strategies for the Future"
  • Highly controversial debate on the existence, treatment and causes of the Metabolic Syndrome from presidents of the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association, representatives from the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry
  • The Hormone Foundation round table on Menopause Management with national experts
  • And the results of three clinical trials covering treatments of female sexual dysfunction, growth hormone therapy in children and hyperparathyroidism.

This year's press schedule will feature highlights of the scientific program through a combination of expert sessions and media round tables designed to give journalists opportunity for in-depth conversations with the experts. For a complete press schedule, to speak with a presenter or to obtain a free press registration form, please contact Meghan Norville at (410) 821-8220 or meghann@imrecommunications.com.
