Event Description:
It is with great pleasure that we present the program of the 18th biannual congress of the International Immunocompromised Host Society (ICHS) to be held in Berlin, Germany, from June 15-17, 2014. ICHS is the premier, international, multi-disciplinary forum for scientific and clinical interchange to improve understanding and management of the immunocompromised host. It was founded in 1980 by an international group of experts engaged in all different aspects of immune deficiencies including inborn errors, treatment-induced or transplant-associated immunosuppression as well as HIV infection and others. Our 18th international symposium will be held in Berlin at the historical Langenbeck Virchow House, located on the campus of the Charité University Hospital, founded in 1710, which has been the place where Robert Koch, Rudolf Virchow, Paul Ehrlich and many other giants on the field of infectious diseases have been working.

Some of our scientific focus in 2014 will be:

  • The microbiome
  • 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
  • The inflammasome
  • Prophylaxis and treatment of viral infections in immunocompromised hosts
  • Infections in patients with rare congenital immune deficiencies
