The 8th International Conference on Biotherapy
November 11-14, 2010
at the Hollywood Hilton in Los Angeles

Biotherapy is the use of living organisms to treat or diagnose medical illnesses. Examples of medicinal organisms include leeches, fly larvae (maggots), bacteriophage, service animals (i.e., guide dogs), cancer-detecting dogs and many more.

The International Conference on Biotherapy (ICB) is the single most important meeting for sharing new clinical and research findings in biotherapy. That is why each meeting attracts world-renowned leaders, cutting-edge researchers, clinicians, educators, students and journalists from throughout the world.

The 8th International Biotherapy Conference was the first meeting in this series to be held in North America. Previous meetings were hosted in the United Kingdom, Germany, Turkey, Israel, and South Korea. Reports from these previous conferences can be found posted on the International Biotherapy Society web page. You can view photographs from the 7th Conference in Seoul, Korea on our website.

The objectives of the 2010 International Conference on Biotherapy were to:

  1. Describe current state of biotherapy research;
  2. Describe multiple biotherapeutic modalities and how to select the appropriate modality;
  3. Explain the use of leech therapy;
  4. Assess the use of bee venom and bacteriophage therapy;
  5. Describe use of service animals in hippotherapy and canine therapy.
Target audience: Physicians, nurses, biologists, and other scientists and students who work in or are interested in working in biotherapy.

Participants included internationally renown experts, clinicians, researchers, students, and lay community members.

Continuing Medical Education (CME): This activity was approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit.
