COMBACTE Abstracts ECCMID 2020 Available

This year the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) would have celebrated its 30th anniversary. Unfortunately the congress had to be cancelled as the COVID-19 pandemic spread. Which is why ESCMID has published all accepted abstracts in the ECCMID 2020 Abstract Book.

In the seven years of COMBACTE, lots of valuable science has been produced. As several COMBACTE studies completed recruitment, (preliminary) results have been issued.

ECCMID 2020 Abstract Book

This science would have been shared at the 30th ECCMID in Paris this year, with a record number of 19 abstracts accepted at the congress as paper posters or oral sessions. Whilst the ECCMID unfortunately did not go ahead, the scientific abstracts that would have been presented have been added to the ECCMID 2020 Abstract Book.

The book contains results and findings from COMBACTE studies: three abstracts are featured from COMBACTE-NET, 6 from COMBACTE-MAGNET, 1 from COMBACTE-CARE and 9 from COMBACTE-CDI.
