The Lancet Summit: Inflammation and Immunity in Disorders of the Brain and Mind will take place

November 15-17, 2018 in Barcelona, Spain.

Organised by The Lancet Neurology and The Lancet Psychiatry, this landmark conference will bring together neurologists and psychiatrists to discuss recent, ongoing, and future research in the developing field of neuroimmunological disease. Coverage includes recent research findings regarding mechanisms of disease, and the translation of this knowledge into treatment, diagnosis, and the prevention of neurological and psychiatric disorders.

The event will have a translational focus, starting with the basic science of immunology and the brain, and then moving into the roles these systems play in neuropsychiatric health and disease, and ending with a clinically-focused debate on screening and treatment.

The programme includes 24 high-level invited speakers supplemented by a large poster session.

Härmed vill vi från styrelsen i Svenska neurologföreningen bjuda in medlemmarna till ett extra årsmöte med anledning av att SNFs nyvalde kassör avgick omedelbart efter tillträdet i maj 2018. Således behöver det extra årsmötet tillsätta en ny kassör. Valberedningen har föreslagit en ny skattmästare (Katrin Roos) som har tackat ja till uppdraget. Datumet för årsmötet är kl. 12 den 15 augusti 2018.

BioArctic meddelar positiva 18 månaders resultat i Fas 2b-studien med BAN2401 i tidig Alzheimers sjukdom

18-månadersanalysen av BAN2401 Fas 2b-studien i 856 patienter med tidig Alzheimers sjukdom visade statistiskt signifikanta och dosberoende effekter med minskad klinisk försämring och minskad amyloid-beta inlagring i hjärnan.

Detta är den första studien i sen klinisk fas som påvisar en potentiell sjukdomsmodifierande effekt på såväl klinisk funktion som inlagring av amyloid-beta i hjärnan.

Den svenska specialistexamen i Neurologi 2019 kommer att äga rum i Uppsala 3-4 juni.
