Late breaking abstracts:

IFPA offers the opportunity to submit late breaking abstracts for the 5th World Psoriasis & Psoriatic Arthritis Conference. These abstracts must highlight novel, recent and high-impact scientific or clinical results which were not available at the submission deadline and are deemed of relevance to the conference delegates. These results should be previously unpublished, and “encores” will not be accepted. Late breaking abstracts should otherwise follow the same submission guidelines as regular abstracts. They will be considered on an individual basis according to their relevance and impact as well as their quality. Please note that this is not considered a prolongation of the regular abstract submission, which has already closed and that the decision by the review team is final.
Should you wish to submit a late breaking abstract, please contact Maxine Lancelot, maxine.lancelot@ifpa-pso.com, with a brief summary of the scientific or clinical results you wish to submit. If the information is deemed relevant to the conference, you will receive a link to the abstract submission form. Late breaking abstracts will be presented in a category of their own, but please indicate in the email which of the following categories the results would fall under.
