Strong scientific presence of TRB at WCO IOF-ESCEO virtual congress 2020 (Past event)

TRB is pleased to support the first 100% virtual WCO-IOF-ESCEO e-congress which will take place from August 20 to 22 and available online until November 20, 2020. We are waiting for your visit at our booth in the virtual exhibition area!

TRB is also proud to host a Satellite Symposium entitled “Hyaluronic acid efficacy in osteoarthritis: beyond standard clinical parameters” which will be available online until November 20, 2020. This Symposium, chaired by Prof. Jean-Yves Reginster, University of Liège, will focus on the use of additional endpoints in clinical trials evaluating the efficacy of intra-articular hyaluronic acid such as our Ostenil products in osteoarthritis.

In addition, two posters summarising post-hoc analyses of TRB-sponsored clinical trials will be presented during the congress. Dr. Maheu, APHP Hôpital St-Antoine, Paris, will present the results of a post-hoc analysis of OSTP-EUR-10-01, a study published last December in PLoS One. This analysis compares the various definitions of responders that can be used in osteoarthritis (PASS, OMERACT-OARSI, MCII) and aimed at identifying predictive factors of a better response following intra-articular injection of hyaluronic acid.

The second poster is focusing on diacerein, a symptomatic slow-acting drug for osteoarthritis (SYSADOA). Prof. Jean-Pierre Pelletier, University of Montréal Hospital Research Centre, will discuss a post-hoc analysis of the DISSCO trial (A multicentre study on the effect of DIacerein on Structure and Symptoms versus Celecoxib in Osteoarthritis) aimed at exploring the influence of patient age on the magnitude of response to treatment with diacerein. Data revealed no differences between the efficacy and safety profile of diacerein in knee osteoarthritis patients younger or older than 65 years of age.

We are looking forward to participating in the first virtual WCO-IOF-ESCEO congress and hope that you share our excitement!
