Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of Keloid Research Foundation; we are delighted to extend a warm welcome, and cordially invite you to join us for the 2nd International Keloid Symposium to be held in the historic City of Rome on June 7-8, 2018 where we can share our knowledge with you; and learn from your experience in treating patients with this very challenging condition.
The Program Committee has organized an extraordinary array of original clinical as well as basic science sessions for this meeting. The 2018 program emphasizes exceptionally strong scientific and clinical content across the breadth of Keloid Disorder, from cutting edge laboratory research and clinical data-mining to current treatment approaches, pros and cons of surgery, radiation therapy, cryotherapy, chemotherapy, laser treatment and other non-surgical interventions. One session is even dedicated to discussion of terminology used to describe the disorder, hoping to part from terms such and “Keloid and Hypertrophic Scarring”. Another session will focus on staging of keloid disorder and it clinical applications as well as analysis of data on >1,000 keloid patients staged accordingly.
We hope that this meeting would bring many investigators as well as specialist clinicians, dermatologists, plastic surgeons, ENT physicians, all under one roof, in order to discuss the challenges of this poorly understood and under-studied human ailment for the benefit of those who suffer the most, the keloid patients.
This year’s meeting is being held in collaboration with International Society of Dermatologic Surgery (ISDS) and Italian Society of Surgical and Oncological Dermatology (SIDCO). Registered participants will have full access to all sessions of this joint meeting.
We look forward to welcoming you in Rome.
The Organizing Committee
