Cooperation and networking among scientists have a key role in the acquisition of new insights. With this aim the international scientific society EGOI is delighted to introduce the first International School on Inositols’ physiology and therapy.
A selection of topics and speakers will help clinicians to gain a deeper overview on the world of inositols’ and a greater awareness of the wide range of medical possibilities associated with these molecules.
The most recent scientific findings on the mechanism of action and therapeutic efficacy of inositols will be dealt with by the EGOI panel of experts through an updated educational program of lessons. Furthermore, investigations carried out on myo- and D-chiro-inositol gave very provocative and relevant data on the inositol physiological functions. With this in mind, inositol involvement in a wide range of ailments – including polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), insulin resistance (IR), metabolic syndrome, gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), and neural tube defects (NTDs) – characterized by deregulation of insulin signaling, will be discussed.
