Abstract

In conclusion, looking through the presented works and data at the first saint petersburg annual meeting allowed the participants to obtain a reliable view of the most recent and upcoming evidence that might affect our practice in autoimmune diseases. After this meeting, clinicians became more familiar with the key role that diets (curcumin, capsaicin, chocolate and salt), adjuvants, viral agents and microbiome playing in promoting/protecting to/from the development of autoimmune diseases. Moreover, participants became more aware of the contribution of serological tests to the diagnosis and classification of autoimmune diseases. Therefore, we are convinced that this is the real added value of meetings which are capable of gathering researchers from different areas to provide a fertile field for contamination and future projects.
