7th World Congress on Trauma, Shock, Inflammation and
(March 13-17, 2007, Munich, Germany)
This volume contains numerous free communications that
have been presented during the 7th World
Congress on Trauma, Shock, Inflammation and Sepsis – TSIS 2007
– which was held in Munich/Germany from
Tuesday, March 13th until Saturday March 17th, 2007. The central program
complex of TSIS 2007 is entitled “Interdisciplinary
Summit on Inflammation”.
The last few years have seen a
revolution in our understanding of inflammation – of how blood and
tissue cells interact and of the intracellular mechanisms controlling
their activation. This has not only provided multiple targets for
potential antiinflammatory and immunomodulatory therapy, but has also
revealed the underlying inflammatory pathology of so many diseases. Thus,
during TSIS 2007, all major disease entities, in which inflammatory
processes play a central role, were presented.
Initiators and drivers of acute
inflammation - mechanical and burn trauma,
shock and reperfusion injury, transplantation, infection and sepsis -
were widely discussed in numerous symposia. But also and very
importantly the biologic conditions of
subclinical chronic inflammatory diseases
- metabolic syndrome, diabetes, atherosclerosis,
autoimmunity (vasculitis, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel
disease), neuropathies and Alzheimer’s disease - were comparatively
The most complex conference program
comprises around 850 contributions, distributed in more than 100
Symposia and Free Communication Sessions.
Finally, on behalf of the scientific
committee I would like to thank the publisher of this proceedings volume
- Medimond Monduzzi Editore International Proceedings Division - for
their interest, support and work in preparation of this issue.
