The ENERCA Poster presented at the ECRD 2014 conference awarded with an abstract in OJRD

July 21, 2014

The Orphanet Journal of Rare Diseases (OJRD) will publish, later this year, a special supplement featuring 40 to 60 abstracts presented at the ECRD 2014 conference. The Programme Committee for the 7th European Conference on Rare Diseases & Orphan Products (ECRD 2014 Berlin), that took place from 8 to 10 May 2014, has invited ENERCA to submit an abstract via EURORDIS to the OJDR as one of the top 20 highest scoring poster presenters of the last conference.

ENERCA participated in ECRD 2014 Berlin with a poster presenting the challenge of rare anaemias and how the ENERCA Network is facing them with a three pronged strategy. Telemedicine, e-Learning and e-Registry are the main working packages developed during the fourth phase of the ENERCA project. This network is also actively working to support the creation of European Reference Networks. You can find the detailed information in the awarded poster.

This is the third time that abstracts from the ECRD will be published on the OJRD. Abstracts submitted must be original and must not have been previously published elsewhere. This journal, published by BioMed Central, is an open access, online journal that encompasses all aspects of rare diseases and orphan drugs and publishes high quality reviews on specific rare diseases. The ENERCA network has recently published there an article about the Challenges and gaps linked to haemoglobinopathies in Europe (learn more about it).
