From meningitis to infectious diseases of the brain in general - EMESG becomes ESGIB
At the general assembly of EMESG 2012 the decision has been taken to broaden up the topic of EMESG from meningitis to include other infectious diseases of the central nervous system. To this end we have joined forces with colleagues interested in encephalitis to form a new study group called ESCMID Study Group for Infectious Diseases of the Brain (ESGIB).
You are happily invited to join and contribute to our activities.
A collaborative pilot study has been set up and started to evaluate correlates of a meningococcal meningitis model in mice. Work has been performed exploiting the complementary expertise of three EMESG partners (Siena, Munich, Bern). Preliminary data are highly encouraging and joint grant applications are ongoing including application for ESCMID funding.
Ongoing EMESG medical guideline project
Guidelines on Rationale Therapeutic Management of Bacterial Meningitis
Under the leadership of Diederik van de Beek, MD, PhD, Neurologist, Academic Medical Center, a panel of experts has been formed to produce guidelines on the management of patients with bacterial meningitis. A proposal for grant support has been sent to ESCMID (Guideline Director: Erdal Akalin) for evaluation.
