The International Symposium on Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine is
organized by the Departments of Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine of
Erasme University Hospital, Universite Libre de Bruxelles, in association with
the Belgian Society of Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine. This annual
conference was started in 1980 and has become established as one of the
largest in its field, now attracting more than 6,000 participants from
countries worldwide. The objectives of this four-day symposium are to provide
participants with an up-to-date review of the most recent, clinically
relevant, developments in research, therapy, and management of the critically
ill. The meeting is open to all physicians, nurses, and other health
professionals with an interest in critical care or emergency medicine.
CytoSorbents Corporation is a critical care focused immunotherapy company
using blood purification to modulate inflammation -- with the goal of
preventing or treating multiple organ failure in life-threatening illnesses.
Organ failure is the cause of nearly half of all deaths in the intensive care
unit, with little to improve clinical outcome. CytoSorb®, the Company's
flagship product, is approved in the European Union as a safe and effective
extracorporeal cytokine filter, designed to reduce the "cytokine storm" that
could otherwise cause massive inflammation, organ failure and death in common
critical illnesses such as sepsis, burn injury, trauma, lung injury, and
pancreatitis. These are conditions where the risk of death is extremely high,
yet no effective treatments exist. CytoSorbents' purification technologies are
based on biocompatible, highly porous polymer beads that can actively remove
toxic substances from blood and other bodily fluids by pore capture and
surface adsorption. CytoSorbents has numerous products under development based
upon this unique blood purification technology, protected by 32 issued US
patents and multiple applications pending, including HemoDefend™,
ContrastSorb, DrugSorb, and others. Additional information is available for
