The 4th annual European League Against Rheumatism congress in Lisbon: a personal perspective
Frank A Wollheim
Arthritis Research & Therapy , 2004, DOI: 10.1186/ar1023
Abstract: The editors of this successful journal, Peter Lipsky and Sir Ravinder Maini, have again asked me to write a personal report, not a summary, of my views of the 4th annual European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) Congress of Rheumatology, and indeed, to be as acid and provocative as I wish. The annual EULAR congresses are now firmly established as the European meeting of the year, combining education with science and politics. It is attended not only by Europeans, but also by delegates from North and South America, Asia, Africa and Australia, and is therefore truly international. The new respectability is a consequence of the election of outstanding officers to the leading posts in the organization of EULAR.This time I was not an invited speaker or chairman, and I arranged my own trip and paid the registration fee out of my own pocket. I stayed in a modern four-star, air-conditioned hotel close to a metro station and used the free pass that came with the registration. This caused some expenses in time and convenience but provided for ample contacts with the locals. It was unfortunate that I did not speak their language. The registration fee of €800 (onsite registration was €1000) included a year's subscription to The Annals of Rheumatic Diseases, a good journal that now has an impact factor of 3.6. Even taking this into account, the surplus money made by the organization must be handsome. This helps keep EULAR strong, which is a good thing, although I would rather have seen the money coming from other sources than my pension.When the decision was made to hold this congress in Lisbon, someone said that it was 6 years ago, nobody had anticipated the attendance of more than 8600 delegates. The largest hall had a capacity of a little over 2000 seats. Most sessions were well or very well attended. It was fortunate for the organizers that some registered delegates spent time in cooler environments outside the center. The architecture of this conference center does not des

Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2010,
Abstract: Material on the 5th World Congress of Music Therapy, chaired by Giovanna Mutti and held in Genoa, Italy, in 1985. In addition to its value as an opportunity for people from various countries to share their music therapy work, this congress was important because it is where the World Federation of Music Therapy (WFMT) was established. From this congress to the present, therefore, the world congresses and the WFMT move forward together.

Romanian Parliamentary Debate on the Decisions of the Congress of Berlin in the Years around 1878-1879  [cached]
Iulia Maria Onac
Quest : Issues in Contemporary Jewish History. , 2012,
Abstract: The Romanian Parliamentary debate around the Congress of Berlin (1878-1879) offers a bird’s eye view of the evolution of antisemitic speech in Romania. Naturalization of the Jews - an issue raised by the Great European Powers during this Congress - came into conflict with the wishes of the Romania political class, which presently exploded into a violent antisemitic campaign in the political debates and public speeches. The “Jewish danger” presented by many intellectuals and politicians will be accompanied by the accusation that the Jews constitute a state within the state, a nation within the nation, both devoted to world conspiracy. Amidst this welter of accusations, antisemitic discourse grew heavy with racial arguments. But by far the main characteristic of the Romanian variant of antisemitic discourse was the rapidity of its adoption in the parliamentary debates.

Abstract: The Ninth Asia Pacific League of Associations for Rheumatology (APLAR) Congress was held in conjunction with the Chinese Rheumatology Association Congress of Rheumatology in Beijing, China, from May 21-26, 2000. The meeting was jointly organised by the Chinese Rheumatology Association and the Chinese Medical Association. There were approximately 2000 registrants, with 400 from China and others from the APLAR region and other Leagues.The meeting consisted of 20 plenary lectures, 39 concurrent symposia, 17 workshops, six free paper sessions and four poster sessions. Altogether there were 263 oral and 468 poster presentations. The broad area of rheumatology was covered during the meeting; this report will concentrate on some highlights of the Congress.M Bendele et al (University of Colorado and Amgen Inc., USA) described the effects of interleukin 1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra, in a hyaluronic acid slow-release vehicle), pegylated soluble TNF receptor I (sTNF-RI) and both used simultaneously in several animal models of arthritis. IL-1Ra and pegylated sTNF-RI are the recombinant human forms of naturally occurring inhibitors of these cytokines. There was increased benefit from the combination, providing a preclinical rationale for investigating the potential for combination therapy with these cytokine inhibitors in early phase clinical trials.Li Yigong (Fuzhou General Hospital, China) and Shi Guiying (PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China) investigated Th1 and Th2 subsets at the sites of rheumatoid inflammation, and also the expression of IL-18 in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) joints at both mRNA and protein levels, in an attempt to understand the relationships between the expression of IL-18 and the ratio of Th1 to Th2 cells, and between IL-18 levels and disease activity. They found that levels of IL-18, IL-4 and IFN-γ mRNA were higher in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and synovial tissue in RA patients than in osteoarthritis (OA) patients and controls.
