9th European Congress on Lung Disease

The 9th annual meeting of the European Respiratory Society (ERS) will be held in Madrid, Spain, this fall. This is the leading gathering of respiratory specialists in Europe. Presentations will be given of the unpublished results of over 3000 studies covering the extremely broad-ranging field of respiratory and lung diseases.

Lung cancer, asthma, chronic bronchitis and sleep apnoea are just some of the topics that will be addressed at this annual Congress.

"It is one of the year's outstanding scientific events", says Nicols Gonzlez Mangado, the chairman of the congress. "This meeting will be a unique, historic occasion, as Spain will be welcoming over 10'000 of the world's leading specialists in respiratory pathology".

Over and above the 3000 advanced studies that have been selected for free communications (either oral presentations or posters), the program includes over 50 specialized symposia featuring the best experts, and covering a range from basic and applied research to still unpublished clinical trials.

"This meeting offers a very attractive combination for a wide audience of specialists, adds Manuel Cosio, the Vice-Chairman of the meeting. That is why the ERS has attracted more and more investigators from all over the world and why our annual meeting is really growing in importance. Madrid got a record number of submitted 3740 abstracts, out of which 3035 were accepted, Manuel Cosio is pleased to report.

One of the symposia, for instance, will be devoted to highly promising new approaches to the prevention of lung cancer. Very recent advances in this field have opened the way to pre-invasive cancer treatment, which stops the formation of cancer cells using an aerosol that will soon undergo human trials. Also in the field of lung cancer, the meeting will be told how it is becoming possible, using sophisticated medical imaging (computerized tomography) techniques, to diagnose the illness at a sufficiently early stage to apply therapy.
