Upcoming Events



Cytokine targeting has become one of the greatest revolutions in modern medicine. A large number of severe and sometimes even lethal inflammatory and autoimmune diseases have become manageable due to selective inhibition of cytokines and cytokine signaling. The development of compounds that selectively inhibit cytokines or interferons has permitted an so far unprecedented molecular characterization of human disease. Cytokines also contribute to cancer development and alterations in tissue homeostasis. Cytokines 2019 will address these developments and provide a comprehensive picture of the current knowledge of cytokine pathways in human disease and the strategies to inhibit, modulate or foster cytokine responses.

Our very own Achilleas Floudas will be speaking about INCREASED T CELL POLYREACTIVITY WITH MARKED ACCUMULATION OF TNF-Α DP (CD4+CD8+) IN THE SYNOVIAL TISSUE OF PRE-RA, ARTHRALGIA SUBJECTS. He will also be presenting three posters.

Poster 1:B and T cell Phenotype and Function in the Synovial Tissue of ACPA+ and ACPA- Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients.

Poster 2: Hypoxia Resistant Pathogenic B cells Accumulate in the RA Synovial Tissue in a CXCR3 Dependent Manner.

Poster 3:Increased T Cell Plasticity with Dysregulation of Tfh, Tph and Treg Cell Responses in Children with JIA and Down Syndrome-associated Arthritis.
