The Urea Cycle Disorders Satellite Symposium to the 11th International Congress on Inborn Errors of Metabolism (ICIEM) – Overcoming Barriers – New Developments and Future Directions for Urea Cycle Disorders

Thursday, August 27, 2009 - Saturday, August 29, 2009
Estancia La Jolla Hotel Conference Center, La Jolla, CA

The specific aims of this meeting were to (1) focus attention on advances that may provide a basis for new interventions to treat UCDs and address the long-term effects of the disorders; (2) review progress and discuss new findings in the role of urea cycle defects, precursors, and intermediaries and their impact on non-urea cycle reactions, e.g., blood pressure and liver disease; and (3) share preliminary data from the investigations of the Urea Cycle Disorders Consortium and encourage collaborations that expand patient access and participation in clinical trials.
