In 1982 Berlin used to be host for the second one time to the overseas Symposium on Atherosclerosis. In 1973 the 3rd symposium was once held there, following the 1st in Athens -opened by way of the unforgettable Paul D. White -and the second one in Chicago, the place the nice gents of atherosclerosis learn - Louis Katz and Irving web page - left their designated imprint at the assembly. because the 3rd symposium in Berlin awesome advances were made within the box of atherosclerosis. The symposia in Tokyo in 1976 and in Houston in 1979 brought very important new wisdom from present learn, stimulating world wide curiosity; Berlin highlighted the most recent advancements. The foreign Atherosclerosis Society (lAS) presents a world discussion board for the whole box of atherosclerosis study. Its major objective is to use the result of simple examine to medical drugs, and thereby to learn the practitioner. Prevention and rehabilitation are of designated value. Intensified overseas cooperation is urgently wanted in any respect degrees. A declared aim of the lAS is touch among younger investigators and among overseas study and paintings teams. partaking within the Berlin assembly have been 1400 researchers from forty two international locations. This illustrates the turning out to be curiosity in atherosclerosis because the top reason for loss of life in "developed" societies. even if, the occurrence of atherosclerosis is expanding all over the world, even if there are nationwide changes within the trend and visual appeal of the illness; this used to be documented on the Berlin Symposium.

This active arousal of interest in important health indices resulted in favourable changes of their health related behaviour. A further step in the right direction is our endeavour to prevent - and not to correct bad health habits. In the field of smoking-prevention we have a strong collaboration between children, kindergarten-and school personnel, parents and local medical practitioners. The success of our interpersonal community prevention approach is reflected by the nearly full - 98 % - participation in the total screening of the two towns.
