The French Neuro-Gastroenterology Group (GFNG) combines clinical and basic research units interested in the mechanisms and treatment of functional disorders associated with digestive pain and discomfort.
The GFNG General Meeting was held this year on 25 and 26 June in Lyon, and brought together a hundred participants including 9 national and international speakers (Swedish, Spanish, Swiss). The delegates were able discuss various issues with the speakers at the scientific sessions, in particular Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Presentation topics included visceral hypersensitivity, inflammation of mucous membranes and abdominal bloating.
Like every year, Mayoly Spindler was present at the meeting to support gastroenterologists and their research.
The Francophone Forum for Hepato-Gastroenterology and Digestive Oncology (JFHOD) took place from March 19 to 22 at the Paris Convention Centre.
JFHOD 2015 was exceptionally busy with over 3770 participants and 55 industrial and institutional partners.
The country in the spotlight was Algeria and the main theme was genetics.
All our French-Algerian teams took turns staffing our booth to speak with the gastroenterologists.
Our two lunch workshops were a great success, with nearly 700 doctors attending.
An article will be published in the Gastroenterology newsletter that Mayoly Spindler sponsors and in the journal Hépato-Gastro & Oncologie Digestive.
Our Franco-Algerian Symposium brought together 54 Algerian gastroenterologists on the theme: Helicobacter pylori infection: "Commonalities and specificities in France and Algeria."
JFHOD is THE conference of the year for gastroenterology for Mayoly Spindler. We were able to make our mark at the 2015 Forum and emerge as an essential partner for gastroenterologists.
Mayoly Spindler participated in the 9th Congress of General Practice France which took place from 26 to 28 March 2015 at the Paris Convention Centre.
