Four Late-breaking Research sessions presented today

The latest research in dermatology will be spotlighted in 48 abstracts that will be presented in four two-hour sessions Saturday. The abstracts address the latest observations in clinical, surgical, and pediatric dermatology, as well as dermatopathology, therapeutics, and basic research.

Researchers were invited to submit abstracts describing their most recent results. The 48 abstracts were chosen from about 180 submitted. Those being presented received the top scores, and the authors will discuss their findings in oral presentations during the sessions.

“Biologics and psoriasis continue to be very important,” Hensin Tsao, MD, PhD, director of the sessions, said of the abstracts submitted. “We are seeing atopic dermatitis coming into the picture in the past couple of years, and this year in particular we are seeing a lot of interesting pediatric studies come out,” he said.

The schedule of Late-breaking Research sessions:

  • Clinical Trials (F056)
    9-11 a.m. in Room W415D
  • Clinical Studies/Pediatric (F072)
    1-3 p.m. in Room W308A
  • Procedural Dermatology (F073)
    1-3 p.m. in Room 304C
  • Basic Science/Cutaneous Oncology/Pathology (F085)
    3:30-5:30 p.m. in Room 304A

“There has been such enthusiasm to put research into the forefront at the Annual Meeting with these Late-breaking Abstract sessions,” Dr. Tsao said. “More than ever, people realize that great science has been, and will continue to be, a vital part of our specialty.  I am glad to see that the Late-breaking Abstract sessions are teeming with submissions.  Dermatologic research is definitely generating a buzz at this meeting.”
