GBS/CIDP Foundation to Hold 10th International Symposium
Date:10/7/2008

Over 250 medical professionals, patients and caregivers from around the

world expected to attend

NARBERTH, Pa., Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The GBS/CIDP Foundation International will host its tenth international symposium on Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) and Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) in Bloomingdale, IL on November 7-9, 2008. Over 250 medical professionals, current and former patients and caregivers from all over the world are expected to attend the three-day event at the Indian Lake Resort.

In addition to general sessions covering the latest developments in current research, diagnosis, treatment and therapies for GBS & CIDP, there will be over twenty workshops offering practical information for patients, caregivers and their physicians. Topics include patient management and long-term outcomes for GBS, CIDP and variants, fatigue, pain and emotional issues, reimbursement and disability, and special sessions for rehabilitation and wheelchair patients.

Speakers and presenters include prominent neurologists who actively treat GBS and CIDP patients and conduct vital research, leading physicians in rehabilitation medicine and physicians who themselves have had the disorder. The symposium will provide invaluable information and networking opportunities for patients, relatives and caregivers who have experienced or had to deal with these rare and potentially catastrophic disorders.

GBS is an inflammatory disorder of the peripheral nerves and is characterized by the rapid onset of weakness and often paralysis of the legs, arms, breathing muscles and face. GBS can develop in persons of any age. CIDP is a rare disorder of the peripheral nerves with weakness occurring over two or more months and is characterized by gradually increasing weakness of the legs and, to a lesser extent, the arms. It is caused by damage to the covering of the nerves, called myelin.
