Clostridioides (Clostridium) difficile is a leading cause of healthcare and community associated diarrhoea and increasingly a cause of disease in animals.
“International Clostridium difficile Symposium” – ICDS is a specific scientific forum at which the latest developments in the field could be presented and discussed. The rise in fundamental research is being mirrored by efforts focused on applied aspects and commercially-orientated R and D activities aimed at improved diagnosis, more effective treatment options and new intervention strategies.
The 1st meeting was held in Kranjska Gora in 2004, the 2nd in Maribor in 2007, while all further meetings were in Bled in 2010, 2012, 2015 and in 2018. The ICDS is now established as the premiere venue for the review of C. difficile research.
