PATH: 2009 Vaccines for Enteric Diseases

PATH said it is helping sponsor the 2009 Vaccines for Enteric Diseases conference in Malaga, Spain, from 9 – 11 September 2009.  PATH said the conference “brings together experts in the fields of vaccines and enteric diseases to address a variety of issues around research, development, and evaluation of vaccines for enteric infections. Each year, an estimated 1.8 million children die from severe, dehydrating diarrhea due to enteric infections.”  Dr. Duncan Steele, senior technical advisor for PATH’s Vaccine Development Global Program, will chair the conference. Dr. A. Louis Bourgeois, scientific director of PATH’s Enteric Vaccine Initiative, will moderate a session on enteric bacterial and parasitic vaccines. PATH’s work will also be presented in a session on a market assessment study for enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) vaccines, conducted in partnership with BioVentures for Global Health, and a session on the results from a clinical trial to refine the challenge model for evaluating ETEC vaccines, conducted with Johns Hopkins University.
