| Welcome to the
island of Elba
In May 2007 we met again, this time on the Italian island
of Elba. We endeavoured to create a relevant and exciting
forum to discuss the topics that you felt matter most. You
helped shape the program through your contributions and watched the
event develop on the meeting website.
The event for you.
Whether you work with plasma product R&D, manufacturing,
economics, safety, clinical, regulatory, or any other relevant
issue, and want to make an active contribution to PPB07, or simply
wish to follow the presentations and discussions to keep abreast
of new developments, this is the event for you.
The main scientific sessions covered key issues on the route
from initial discovery to the production of approved plasma products.
Each session was developed by the chairperson and the meeting
also included a keynote lecture and a special focus lecture.
Particular emphasis was placed on promoting networking and
discussion. There was also opportunity for poster presentations.
Site visit to Kedrion SpA
We were especially excited to be able to present an opportunity
to combine the meeting with a site visit to Kedrion Biopharmaceuticals in Bolognana -
Gallicano, not far from Lucca and Pisa. This took place on
Monday, May 7, 2007.
On behalf of the
Organising Committee, I was pleased to welcome all to the Fifth Plasma Product
Biotechnology Meeting - PPB07 in 2007.
