Monday, November 29, 2010 - Tuesday, November 30, 2010
North Bethesda Marriott , Bethesda, MD

The specific aims of this conference were to review the current status of basic and translational research on pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE), determine the most relevant biomarkers and clinical endpoints in preparation for clinical trials, and evaluate a number of hypothetical therapeutic interventions including vitamin K therapy and anti-angiogenesis therapies. Additionally, meeting participants reviewed the understanding of the clinical manifestations of PXE in order to come to consensus on diagnostic criteria. The results of the meeting will be used to plan for future research and translational applications.
