We are pleased to cordially invite you to the International Congress

has led to a better understanding of the molecular biology involved in
this area and new medication and treatment approaches are appearing with
good prospects in Dual Pathology. In addition psychological, cultural
and societal influences in this field provide a general background, so
it is necessary for experts to meet and discuss on these developments.
This meeting will provide the opportunity for clinicians and researchers,
as well as, distinguished guests to exchange views and ideas, discuss
recent knowledge and possible actions in order to improve the health and
well being of the dual pathology patients all over the world.
