For the fourth time we invite you to join us in Frankfurt to discuss the very recent findings on dietary fatty acids and health. After a lecture on lipotoxicity the presentations focus on cardiovascular disease and its risk factors: What is the importance of milk lipids for coronary heart disease? How are fatty acids involved in the pathogenesis of the metabolic syndrome? Is there an impact of dietary fat on cardiac function? The first day closes with a first presentation on Omega-3 fatty acids: Is there a role for mood regulation?

The second day is mainly devoted to Omega-3 fatty acids. After an initial lecture on proven health effects it is tried to answer the question of whether alpha-linolenic acid can replace longer Omega-3 fatty acids in the diet. Further presentations focus on Omega-3 fatty acids and inflammation and their role in cardiac risk modification in patients with the metabolic syndrome.

The conference closes with a critical presentation on the transfer of scientific knowledge into clinical practice.

A limited number of abstracts dealing with dietary fatty acids and health can be accepted for poster presentation. We encourage you to send us your abstract by February 15, 2010.

You are heartily welcome at Frankfurt for extensive discussion.
