Antiphospholipid Syndrome: Insights and Highlights from the 13th International Congress on Antiphospholipid Antibodies 2012th Edition PDF
by Doruk Erkan (Editor), Silvia S. Pierangeli (Editor)

The International Congress on Antiphospholipid Antibodies is held every three years to discuss the recent advances and future directions in Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS). This volume collects the scientific highlights  and new findings about APS that were generated from the most recent 13th Congress, held in Galveston, Texas in 2010.  Chapters were written by an internationally-distinguished group of scientists from the point-of-view of multiple specialty areas. Each chapter was written in a uniform and systematic basis to present the latest evidence-based research, including the basic science of APS, task force reports from the Congress on controversial aspects of APS,  and future directions of APS research. This book will appeal to all clinicians involved in the treatment and management of APS patients, to residents in a variety of medical subspecialties, and to research scientists interested in a better understanding of this complex and evolving disease. 

The International Congress on Antiphospholipid Antibodies is held every 3 years to discuss the recent advances and future directions in antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). The 13th International Congress on Antiphospholipid Antibodies (APLA 2010) was hosted in Galveston, TX, USA on April 13–16, 2010. The goal of the chairperson (Dr. Silvia Pierangeli) and the meeting organizers was to make this event a truly international and multispecialty one, and to provide the attendees with the latest evidence-based science on APS. More than 40 invited speakers from different specialties and more than 400 attendees from 28 countries came together for a very comprehensive and thorough program; the congress was accredited and supported by the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) as a CME event. 
The three-and-half day event included state-of-the-art lectures, “meet the professor” sessions tailored to the interest of junior scientists and clinicians, selected abstract oral presentations, poster sessions, a laboratory wet workshop to evaluate the performance of various diagnostic antiphospholipid antibody (aPL) tests, and preconference “consensus” workshops for the task forces to report and discuss their conclusions. These task forces that were created by the meeting organization committee to review the controversial aspects of APS in an evidence-based manner were:
