ESBRA- Nordmann Award Meeting 2018
“Alcohol and the Immune system”
Alcohol can disrupt many immune pathways in complex ways, thereby impeding the body’s ability to defend against infection, contribute to organ damage associated with alcohol consumption, and impede recovery from tissue injury.
The effects of alcohol on the immune system involve various types of immune cells and their interactions which are partly mediated by cytokines, chemokines and other chemical messengers.
Alcohol–immune interactions may affect the development and progression of certain cancers, communication between the gut microbiota and the intestinal immune system, hepatic hepatitis and cirrhosis, as well as being involved in microglial activation with the resultant brain damage.
Abstracts for either oral or poster presentation are invited from interested participants which cover any of these subjects for the ESBRA Nordmann Meeting at Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, from Thursday 11th-12th October 2018. Further information for abstract preparation will shortly be available on the ESBRA website. The cost of the Meeting will be approximately 250 Euros which will include registration as well as 2 nights’ accommodation at the IBIS Hotel at Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium.
