9th Annual Biomarkers Congress
IBD 2011: Progress and Future for Lifelong Management
ANA InterContinental Tokyo
1-12-33 Akasaka, Minato-ku Tokyo 107-0052 Japan
Tokyo, Japan
We are proud and glad to welcome all of you to FALK Symposium 180, which is held for the
first time in Japan. Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic intestinal disorder of
unknown etiology. The theme of this meeting is �IBD 2011: Progress and Future for Lifelong
Management�. In recent years, IBD therapeutics have been dramatically changed by the
appearance of the biologics. It also raises us a new mission to maintain long-term remission
resulting in avoiding the disability and to manage adverse effects carefully.
We are also glad that basic researchers and clinical experts of IBD in Asian countries will join
us. IBD has their highest prevalence in Western industrialized countries of Europe and North
America. However, as you know, the accumulative numbers of IBD patients have been
increasing in Japan and other Asian countries. Therefore, we will also focus on exchange
between Western countries and Asian IBD experts in this meeting.
We hope this meeting will contribute to further development of IBD management and
stimulate Asian IBD experts. We look forward to see you in Tokyo.
Please submit your poster abstract before July 31, 2011. Only one-page abstracts
not exceeding 250 words, written in English and saved in Microsoft Word format will
be accepted.
Abstracts must be submitted via our Internet Abstract Submission System
(http://www.falkfoundation.com/poster) where further information regarding the
submission format and the submission process is available.
The abstracts will be selected by the scientific organizers, preference being given to
those thematically related to one of the sessions of the program.
The accepted abstracts will be printed and distributed to the participants of the
congress together with the documents of the meeting.
