We will soon be heading to the world’s largest meeting of respiratory professionals to demonstrate how Peptest can be used in patients with chronic pharyngitis and non-allergic rhinitis (NAR).

The 28th European Respiratory Society (ERS) International Congress, which takes place in Paris on 15 to 19 September 2018, is an annual event that regularly attracts more than 22,000 people.

Our research associates Rhianna Lenham (Sheffield Hallam University) and Rachel Hodgson (Stirling University) will present their poster and abstracts at the Congress’s Paris Expo Porte de Versailles venue.

Rachel Hodgson, Qiuping Wang, Xiu Wang, Peter W. Dettmar

Chronic pharyngitis is inflammation of the back of the throat, known as the pharynx.

Pepsin as a biomarker of reflux in NAR patients
Rhianna K. Lenham, Qiuping Wang, Xiu Wang and Peter W. Dettmar

Non-allergic rhinitis is inflammation of the inside of the nose that isn’t caused by an allergy.

With more than 420 scientific and educational sessions at the Congress, the programme will be broken down into eight fields – respiratory critical care, pulmonary vascular disease, airway diseases, interstitial lung disease (ILD), respiratory infections, paediatric respiratory diseases, sleep and breathing disorders and thoracic oncology.
