Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 7th International Conference on Fixed Combination in the Treatment of Hypertension, Dyslipidemia and Diabetes Mellitus. The event will take place in Cannes, France on March 2-5, 2017.

Fixed combination has become popular over the recent years. It enables us to treat the patients with smaller amounts of tablets, thus improving compliance and effectiveness of treatment. It simplifies treatment, may decrease costs and minimizes the likelihood of missed doses. In specific cases it enables us to give lower doses of each component drug and thus combination therapy may reduce side effects. As a result, fixed combination therapy has shown to improve adherence and patients’ clinical outcomes.

The scientific program will be designed to cover a wide range of cardiovascular diseases including cardiovascular risk factors and their treatment. It will include compelling topics such as Hypertension, Diabetes, Dyslipidemia, Obesity and the Metabolic Syndrome. The complications, like Heart Failure, Renal Dysfunction, Peripheral Vascular Disease and the use of combination therapy in these conditions will also be discussed. Various aspects of the Polypill, combination of two, three and even more medications in the same tablet, their feasibility and applicability, will also raise in discussions.

The conference is intended for experts in the fields of diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, internal medicine, cardiology, nephrology, endocrinology, hyperlipidemia, family medicine, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners and physicians’ assistants. All are invited to explore the current and future role of fixed combinations in the treatment of hypertension, dyslipidemia and diabetes.

As the hosting city, Cannes is one of the best-known cities of the French Riviera, famous for the glitzy hotels, cars, beaches, and visitors. Cannes has become one of the busiest tourist destinations among jet-setters and famous celebrities as the city hosts many significant events including the annual Cannes Film Festival.
On behalf of the entire Organizing Committee, we hope you will join us for what promises to be a compelling and stimulating event and that your interaction with your colleagues from many different countries will stimulate a creative exchange of ideas and will be personally rewarding.
We look forward to welcoming you to Cannes in March 2017.

Yours Sincerely
Prof. Reuven Zimlichman
