8,000 Specialists Join for the Annual Meeting in Gothenburg

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, September 20, 2010 - About 8,000 dermatologists and scientists from all over the
world will attend the annual meeting of the European Academy of Dermatology
and Venereology (EADV) in Gothenburg from 6-10 October, 2010. The 18th EADV
Congress is dedicated to the presentation and discussion of the most recent
developments in clinical and experimental dermatology and venereology.

The alarming increase in HIV prevalence and the challenges of
early HIV diagnosis as well as new findings for a better cosmetic use of
Botulinum Toxin are among the key issues of this year's EADV Congress.
Moreover, the meeting will provide insights into novel diagnostic tools for
skin cancer, recent advances in dermatosurgery, new therapies of
immune-mediated skin disorders, as well as an update on dermatoscopy and
aesthetic dermatology.

Making waves in dermatology - in line with this motto, two
press conferences are scheduled to present the latest findings in
dermatologic research and current therapeutic options.
