The Modes of Action of Vaccine Adjuvants

The Modes of Action of Vaccine Adjuvants

October 8—13, 2014 Seattle, Washington, USA

Meeting Summary

Globally, vaccines are the most effective medical interventions in limiting morbidity and mortality against infections. Effective vaccines are administered in a variety of formulations and include not only portions of their target but also adjuvants. Adjuvants can improve the magnitude and breadth of the immune response and immunological memory against the target and also determine the nature of the generated immune response. Almost all vaccines that are now in use include adjuvants, such as nucleic acids from the target organisms, in the case of attenuated virus vaccines, insoluble aluminum salts (alum), oil-in-water emulsions (MF-59) or formulated toll-like receptor ligands (MPL-TLR4). However, the world still lacks consistently effective vaccines against many infectious agents, tuberculosis, malaria and HIV and against cancers. Therefore much current research is devoted to identification of newer adjuvants, adjuvants that will safely induce the type of immune response that will most effectively deal with its target. In many cases the precise mode of action of the adjuvant is not known. For example the mode of action of alum, an adjuvant that has been used in vaccines since the 1930s and generates excellent antibody responses, is still inadequately understood. This conference will focus on the cell and molecular mechanisms of action of old and new adjuvants and other immunomodulatory agents and their use in various vaccines against infectious diseases and cancer.

EUROGIN 2015 Congress

EUROGIN 2015 Congress

Feb 4-7, 2015 Seville, Spain

The EUROGIN 2015 Congress aims at developing a full review of current scientific developments in the field of cervical cancer and human papillomavirus related diseases, raising the public health profile and increasing the need for responsible health services in this area.

The event endeavors to translate scientific and evidence-based research into clinical practice while highlighting the following aspects:

- Recent advances and updated scientific insights in HPV screening, testing and management

- The impact of HPV and associated cancers on public health

- Strategies to prevent and treat HPV related diseases

- Exchanging information on early detection, new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and prevention strategies including screening and HPV vaccination

Speakers include international leaders from academic, government and private organizations, representatives of medical and scientific societies, as well as women's health associations who will discuss and exchange ideas on issues relevant to both individuals and public health

15th International Symposium on Viral Hepatitis and Liver Diseases (ISVHLD)

15th International Symposium on Viral Hepatitis and Liver Diseases (ISVHLD)

June 26-28, 2015 Berlin, Germany

In June 2015 the 15th International Symposium on Viral Hepatitis and Liver Diseases (ISVHLD) will be held in Berlin, Germany.

ISVHLD has a tradition of 43 years. Initially the focus was on discovery of hepatitis viruses, then it was the development of diagnostic procedures, vaccines, understanding pathophysiology and now therapies. In 2015 will be the time when many of the new direct antiviral agents (DAAs) against hepatitis C will be approved. However public health will become very important to identify the patients in need for therapy and to make these new therapies accessible to all parts of the world. Furthermore we still need to develop better finite therapies for hepatitis B and need to address many more burning issues of global relevance like hepatitis D and E.

This symposium is organized every three years moving around the continents. Basic scientists and clinicians will discuss the most recent advances made against the global health burden caused by all hepatitis viruses. For the first time the symposium will be organized in Germany taking place in its capital Berlin.

International Symposium on Minority Health and Health Disparities
United States

International Symposium on Minority Health and Health Disparities

December 1–3, 2014 National Harbor, Maryland

The International Symposium on Minority Health and Health Disparities will convene December 1–3, 2014 in National Harbor, Maryland. Pre-Symposium Training workshops will take place December 1, 2014.

In keeping with the theme of the symposium, "Transdisciplinary Collaborations: Evolving Dimensions of US and Global Health Equity,” the scientific program will highlight the excellence and innovation in basic, translational, and clinical research from the programs supported by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD). The Symposium has been designed to offer opportunities for sharing research information in areas related to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity, cancer, women's health, mental health, infectious disease, stroke, and behavioral and community health with special emphasis on minority health and health disparities. We invite others who are engaged in clinical, translational, basic science, education, and policy research in minority health and health disparities to join us.

Antibiotic Alternatives for the New Millennium
United Kingdom

Antibiotic Alternatives for the New Millennium

Wednesday, 05 November 2014 09:00-Friday, 07 November 2014 17:00 London, United Kingdom

The inexorable rise in the incidence of antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens, coupled with the disappointingly low rate of emergence of new,clinically useful antibiotics, has refocused attention on finding alternatives to antibiotic treatments. This event will discuss the potential utility of phages, probiotics, antimicrobial peptides, herbal medicines and immune modulation for treating human and animal disease.

Who Should Attend

From researchers trying to find alternatives to therapies to pharmacists delivering treatments: any one with an interest in antibiotic alternatives would find this event of value.
