With a truly international impact, the congress has earned its definite place and role in the PID clinical landscape.

The IPIC 5th Edition programme will feature international key opinion leaders in the field and seek to engage international delegates in thought-provoking and interactive sessions. Key topics will include, among others:

  • PIDs and allergies
