The close of the 33rd annual ENTIS conference

Between the 8th and 10th September 2022, Dr Georgios Eleftheriou and colleagues from Poison Control Center and Teratology Information Service at the Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital hosted the 33rd ENTIS conference in Bergamo, Italy.

Engaging key note lectures were provided from internationally renown experts on a range of topics including the teratogenic risks of caffeine, risk communication and scientific misinformation, cobalt exposure due to metal-on-metal hip exposures, hyperpyrexia as a major teratogen, several sessions on COVID-19 (including treatment and vaccination), controversies in clinical teratology including acetaminophen (paracetamol) and ondansetron in pregnancy, psychotropic medications and the pathophysiology of neonatal abstinence. An archive of the conference programme is available here.

The meeting was a great success, and warm thanks are extended to the whole of the organising committee for arranging the conference. After several setbacks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was fantastic for ENTIS friends and colleagues to meet in person, discuss ideas for the future, and enjoy the social programme in the beautiful city of Bergamo.

ENTIS members will shortly be able to access the presentations from the meeting in the members area of the website (username and password required).
