The 54th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE) will be held 1 – 3 October in Barcelona, Spain. The ESPE annual scientific meeting is recognised worldwide as a meeting of high scientific and educational quality. This year's theme is “Improving patient care: a pluridisciplinary dialogue”.
Three embargoed press releases will be sent out ahead of the conference covering ground-breaking research in the following areas:
· A link between asthma medication and stunted growth
· A novel technique for the production of insulin-producing cells for the treatment of diabetes
· A large scale study which links increased height with an increased risk of cancer
The European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE) is a truly international organisation aiming to improve the clinical care of children and adolescents with endocrine conditions, including diabetes, through research and education.
