On 18-19 July, the HKMSS has co-organized the 2015 APAC Summit with UCB Pharma at the JW Marriott Hotel. We are proud that the Summit has managed to gather so many stars and experts from all over the world in the field of MS and NMO, which gave our participants a chance to learn from their expertise.
Flying in all the way from Germany, we had Prof. Heinz Wiendl, who enlightened us on how to tailor treatment for highly active MS patients; and Prof. Achim Gass, who gave us a much deeper understanding and appreciation of the role of imaging in MS. From other south-eastern Asian countries, we had Prof. Naraporn Prayoonwiwat from Thailand; Prof. Byung-Jo Kim and Prof. HJ Kim from Korea; and Prof. Ching Piao Tsai from Taiwan, who shared with us their local practice and experience in managing CNS demyelinating disorders. Last but not least, we had Prof. Kazuo Fujihara from Japan, who gave us further insights into his expertise in NMO.
Three of our council members, Dr. KH Chan, Dr. KL Shiu, and Dr. KK Lau also shared our local experience with our overseas speakers. The highlight of the Summit was definitely the panel discussion, where we had the chance to seek our overseas experts’ advice on many difficult-to-manage cases!
