The 30th meeting of czech and slovak colleagues on inherited metabolic diseases was held in May.

In the period between the 20th – 22nd of the May, 2015, the 30. Working Days Inherited Metabolic Diseases was hosted by hotel Vista, Dolni Morava. This meeting is organised in collaboration with Palacký University Olomouc and Faculty Hospital Olomouc with a major suppport of Nutricia Metabolics.

Patronage of this year´s conference with the theme of inherited metabolic diseases was taken by Prof. RNDr. Tomáš Adam, Ph.D. from Faculty Hospital Olomouc, which is focused on a clinical and research activities regarding inherited metabolic diseases. General partner of this annual event was Nutricia Metabolics.

On this occasion Czech and Slovak colleagues amongst which are geneticists, biochemists, analysts and scientists who are dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with inherited metabolic disorders traditionally meet. However, some interesting experts outside the field such as Dr. David J. Begley (King´s College London, UK) and Prof. Dr. Daniel Hannelore (Technische Universität Műnchen, Germany) were invited this year to extend the traditional topics.

Inherited metabolic diseases (IMD) are a group of several hundred very different diseases whose essential common feature is that they are inherited and related to metabolism. However, the basic cause of inherited metabolic disorders comes down to DNA. These types of diseases belong to the group of rare diseases. The incidence of each diagnosed IMD is low, 1: 103 to 1: 106 and lower, but the overall incidence of IMD is relatively high (1: 1000 to 1: 600). The actual incidence is probably even higher and a number of patients are not involved in the statistics. Therefore, it is important to share and extend the knowledge in the field of IMD on a local and international level.

The lecture part of the scientific program was divided into several thematic panels such as Brain and metabolic deseases or General metabolism and screening. Delegates could also visit two poster sections consisting of 48 posters. The interesting scientific program was supplemented by the exhibition of cooperating partners from the pharmaceutical industry.

Apart from the professional program, informal networking was also a part of the conference. The social evening consisted of traditional Czech and Slovak dishes and entertainment in restaurant U Slona.

Since 2011 C-IN has provided the Working Days Inherited Metabolic Diseases with professional organising services. The dedicated team secures services ranging from registration and accommodation for delegates through technical support to onsite activities management. The conference Working Days Inherited Metabolic Diseases visits Czech and Sovak destinations. In recents years it was hosted by Košice and Mikulov.
