19th Symposium on Infections in the Immunocompromised Host
Dear colleagues and friends:
The 19th biennial congress of the International Immunocompromised Host Society was held in in Santiago Chile this year! For the first time, our meeting was held in conjunction with INFOCUS which has become the most comprehensive meeting for Medical Mycology in Latin America! In this 19th ICHS/14th INFOCUS congress, we addressed clinically important and scientifically hot topics including • New diagnostics • Infections in transplant recipients • Invasive fungal infections and resistance • Treatment of multi-resistant bacteria • Infectious complications in immunocompromised children • Life-threatening infections and intensive care in neutropenic cancer patients • Antiviral and antifungal immune responses in compromised hosts • Prophylaxis and treatment of viral infections in immunocompromised hosts • Zika and others in symposia , plenary sessions, meet the experts and poster sessions. We hope you were able to attend, but if not, we look forward to welcoming you to Athens, Greece for the 20th Symposium on Infections in the Immunocompromised Host.
