Date:3/12/2009

Arnhem, 12 March 2009 - At the forthcoming 24th Annual EAU Congress in Stockholm (SE), which will start on Tuesday 17 March, the EAU will be organizing three Meet the Expert sessions. These are press meetings on various subjects with expert urologists. They will be held in the Press Centre of the congress venue. In these sessions, members of the press have the opportunity to ask the experts their questions practically one-on-one.

The first session's subject is Male incontinence and will be organised on Wednesday 18 March from 15:00 to 15:30 hours. It is chaired by Prof Paul Abrams who will discuss the latest developments in this area. He is considered one of the world's leading experts in the field of lower urinary tract dysfunction. He is currently Professor of Urology, University of Bristol (UK). Paul Abrams has served as General Secretary of the International Continence Society (ICS). He was Chairman of the International WHO Consultations on Incontinence.

Prof Kurt Naber will be chairing the second session about the International Consultation on Urological Diseases (ICUD) on Thursday 19 March 2009 from 14:30 to 15:00 hours. The ICUD is organising global consultations on urological diseases, under the cosponsorship of the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Society of Urology (SIU), and the International Union Against Cancer (UICC).

The aim of the ICUD is to improve, with concerted efforts, the management and reduce the prevalence of urinary tract infections as well as the development of bacterial resistance. Another objective is to arrive at a consensus, which will be laid down in a textbook on urogenital infections with contributions of an international faculty consisting of about 100 recognised experts.

Kurt Naber is Professor of Urology at the Technical University of Mnchen (GE), School of Medicine. He is an expert in urological infections, especially the treatment of urinary tract infections and prostatitis. He will be chairing this year's ICUD.

Professor of Urology at Dsseldorf University (GE), Prof Peter Albers, will be chairing the third and last session on Testicular and penile cancer, Thursday 19 March 2009 from 15:30 to 16:00 hours. He is an active member of German Association of Urology (DGU), European Association of Urology (EAU), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC), among others.

A report of the sessions will be published on the EAU websites, www.uroweb.org and www.eaustockholm2009.org.
