ERA-EDTA WORKING GROUP ON CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE AND MINERAL BONE DISORDER (CKD-MBD)
3th European Renal Osteodystrophy (EUROD) winter meeting
We are pleased to inform you that the 2020 EUROD winter meeting is currently in preparation to outperform all previous years for you! The 2020 edition will take place from January 16 to January 18, 2020 at the historical Convent of Chièvres in Leuven (Belgium).
The meeting will consist of a research forum (January 16), a CME dedicated to the topic of “Vitamins and oxidative stress on the cross-roads of bone and vessels” and a hands-on CME dealing with the “Challenge of osteoporosis therapy in advanced CKD”.
Faculty (confirmed) includes M. Vervloet, S. Mazzaferro, S. Salam, J. Cunningham, M. Fusaro, L. Schurgers, J. Floege, and P. Stenvinkel.
The EUROD winter meeting is a great opportunity to interact with other delegates specialized in the field in an open and friendly atmosphere.
Travel grants for best abstracts (call to be expected in Sept 2019).
Save the date now! All important information such as the final program or the online registration form will soon be available on the ERA-EDTA website (CKD-MBD working group).
The Symposium Chairman,
The definition of CKD-MBD is different than the previously recognized as "renal osteodystrophy", and it refers to a systemic disorder of mineral and bone metabolism due to CKD manifested by either one or a combination of the following:
The term "renal osteodystrophy" is now limited to an alteration of bone morphology in patients with CKD, and it is one measure of the skeletal component of the systemic disorder of CKD-MBD that is quantifiable by histomorphometry of bone biopsy.
Thus, the CKD-MBD Working Group becomes an independent scientific organization comprising a group of European academic medical institutions aligned to CKD-MBD regarding:
