LMS Group Announces Consensus Conference on Cachexia

LMS Group is developing an independent educational initiative in the form of an international consensus conference on Cachexia.
July 31, 2008 - PRLog -- The purpose of this conference entitled, "Determining Endpoints for Clinical Trials on Cachexia and Related Disorders" is to engage in a thorough discussion of the pros and cons of a variety of endpoints for trials intended to support the approval of new drugs designed to treat and prevent cachexia and related disorders. The goal is to work toward the establishment of a set of principles on current and future standards of efficacy and safety for these drugs.

The primary focus will be on endpoints that are ready for incorporation into clinical trials now or in the near future. Participants may identify key issues and areas in which knowledge is limited and may recommend issues or questions for further study.

More than 20 international experts in Nutrition, Oncology, Cardiology, Nephrology, Geriatrics and other disciplines will meet on 8-9 December 2008 in Washington DC. www.cachexia.org
