15th ISHEN Symposium
The 15th ISHEN symposium is now over.
There were 149 participants from 17 nations.
According to all comments, the symposium was a solid success as regards scientific programme and exchange and social life. The meeting lead to clarification and progress of several issues relating to the pathogenesis, treatment, and terminology of hepatic encephalopathy, and to establishment of new research contacts and agreements. This, eventually, will be of benefit to the patients suffering from this devastating brain malfunction, and to their caregivers and the health care system.
This was only possible because of the generous and loyal alliance with our sponsors. The meeting programme with abstracts of all the presentations and posters can be viewed via the homepage www.ISHEN.org. The sponsors are listed on the front inside cover page. We much appreciated to welcome those sponsor representatives who took part in the meeting, and we hope that their presence was fruitful.
I take the opportunity to express the hope that this successful collaboration can continue.
The next and 16th ISHEN symposium will be in 2014 in London with professor Rajiv Jalan as president and organizer.
