Meeting report from the 5th European Phenylketonuria Group Symposium & 3rd Dietitians’ Workshop, Istanbul, Turkey, 14-16 March 2013


In this edition of the PKU Academy Newsletter, we report on the highlights of the 5th European Phenylketonuria Group Symposium and 3rd Dietitians’ Workshop. These meetings attracted over 200 delegates from 30 countries to Istanbul, Turkey, between the 14th and 16th of March 2013.

We also feature three more of the ‘Perspectives’ interview features which give a personal view from the people behind the presentation and papers.

Prof Maria Giżewska, pediatrician, of the Pomeranian Medical University, Szczecin (Poland), talks about linking patients and professionals across national borders.

Prof Niels Gregersen, metabolic biochemist, of the University of Aarhus, Aarhus (Denmark) considers how current work to understand the molecular chemistry of chaperone therapy in other inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) may be relevant to PKU.

Prof François Maillot, MD and nutritionist, of the Université François Rabelais de Tours, Tours (France) discusses the need for greater understanding of the effects of diet for life and shares his hopes for success in the current process of agreeing European guidelines for PKU.
