July 21, 2010  - The 20th annual International Conference on Chelation (ICOC) will be held October 22-25, 2010 in Grand Rapids, MI.
A welcome message from Gene D. Weinberg, Honorary President of the Conference, states that "excessive and misplaced tissue iron is now recognized to pose a substantial health risk for an extensive array of endocrinological, gastrointestinal, infectious, neoplasmic, neurodegenerative, obstetric, ophthalmic, orthopedic, pulmonary, and vascular disorders. As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, development of iron chelation as a therapeutic modality is attaining maturity. Not only can the toxic metal burdens of the entire body be safely lowered, but we also are becoming able to remove hazardous iron from specific cellular and subcellular sites."

Selected papers will be published in the journal Hemoglobin.  Guest editor will be George J. Kontoghiorghes.

Early registration deadline is July 30.  For more information, including instructions for abstract submissions, please click here.

Would this be an open conference? Can parents attend too?

If you check the registration link you will see this statement. http://www.icoc-isocam.org/icoc/

The ICOC conferences are open platform meetings allowing the participation of clinicians, scientists, health professionals, students, patients' organisations and the general public. All participants have to be registered. Early registration deadline is the 30th of July 2010.

Most US conferences are open to all, as it should be. However, registration is quite costly.


All we are saying is give thals a chance.
