Les Arènes de la Plasmaphérèse Thérapeutique


Presentation of the event

Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,

The team of the Nephrology - Dialysis - Apheresis Department of the University Hospital of Nîmes is pleased to invite you to the SECOND edition of the "Arènes de la PlasmaphérèseThérapeutique" congress, which will take place on the 7th and 8th of JULY 2021, within the Faculty of Medicine of Montpellier - Nîmes, site of Nîmes.

The first edition took place before the confinement of the 1st wave and we hope that this second session will close the painful COVID episode.

This second meeting will bring together different disciplines and teams from France and abroad with the aim of highlighting the various techniques of therapeutic apheresis. We are convinced that today the exchange of our skills and knowledge is essential to optimize the individualized prescription of therapeutic apheresis.

Finally, we will take the opportunity to rediscover one of the most prestigious ancient sites in France, the Arena of Nîmes, before testing the Bodegua atmosphere.

Pr Olivier Moranne and the team of the Nephrology - Dialysis - Apheresis Department; University Hospital of Nimes, France
