Welcome to the website for the combined conference on CRMO/SAPHO and Behçet's disease

The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) and the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious diseases (NIAID) are cosponsoring a combined conference on CRMO/SAPHO and Behçet's disease from September 3-5, 2008 in Bethesda, Maryland.

The focus of this meeting is to share the most current understanding of these diseases with the goal of developing a research program focused on the application of current technology to understand the pathogenesis of these diseases in the context of the development of a pilot treatment study. We would like to integrate these initiatives with ongoing research and target the specific development of clinical and functional tests that can be used in larger studies to assess clinical and immunological outcomes in the respective patient populations.

The meeting will take place in the Cloisters on the NIH campus.
