Chalk another one up for Biotherapy!

The past 20 years have seen dramatic advances in the Biotherapy research and acceptance into mainstream medicine. Milestones like FDA marketing clearance and insurance reimbursement highlight these advances. The latest evidence of acceptance of biotherapy into mainstream health care comes in the form of sponsorship for the upcoming (8th) International Conference on Biotherapy, which will be held this year in North America (Los Angeles).

Preparing for the 8th International Conference on Biotherapy

The past few months have been quite busy for those in the Biotherapy world: preparing for the 8th International Conference on Biotherapy. "We had planned to stop accepting abstracts for the conference by now," said a spokesman for the Conference, ". . . but abstracts are continuing to roll in, and we are reluctant to terminate the flow of papers and ideas." So, the Organizing Committee announced this week that the deadline for submitting abstracts for the Conference has been extended until August 31.

The Conference Organizers don't want anyone with something to share to be left out.
