New Abstract Topic

International Forum: Exploring the National, Regional, and Local Clinical Experience With Botulinum Neurotoxins

In recognition of the country-specific and/or institution-specific differences in the use of BoNTs in clinical practice, this session is designed for clinicians and research scientists to share their experience and insights with global colleagues. A session format combining presentations and a panel discussion will identify and explore these differences in the clinical application of BoNTs relating to: patient populations, treatment protocols, best practices for common indications, pharmacoeconomic considerations, and data for the use of BoNT therapy in innovative ways.

After this date (180 days) no more than 50% of the reserved rooms per day can be cancelled.

Please note, that in order to cancel the maximum of 50% allowed, the cancellation should occur during period 1 (see below). The original reservation is defined as all rooms (inclusive of VAT) reserved and confirmed on the date stipulated as the last allowed for cancellations.
