There is still time to register for the satellite symposium to the World
Alzheimer Congress ‘Neuroinflammation in Alzheimer’s Disease’.

The conference will take place at the Capital Hilton Hotel, Washington DC,
USA, 7-8 July 2000, immediately prior to the World Alzheimer Congress.

Invited speakers will review the major inflammatory mechanisms that have
been uncovered in the AD brain, summarizing essential background information
and reviewing how the particular inflammatory mediator or mechanism is
expressed and acts in the AD brain. Additional lectures will be devoted to
the interactions of the various pathways and their relevance to AD
pathophysiology, based on reviews of the basic science and clinical
literature. A final session will address the controversies that exist in the
field, such as the most appropriate choice of an anti-inflammatory
therapeutic for AD. These oral presetnations will be supplemented by a
number of poster presentations on the themes of the conference.
