Introduction
Welcome Address
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
It is a great pleasure and privilege to welcome you to Milan, Italy, on behalf of ESCMID and ISC and to the
21st ECCMID / 27th ICC, the second joint meeting of both organising societies. As the result of what seems like a
Renaissance mathematical cabala, both ESCMID and ISC held their 12th congresses in Italy, ESCMID 9 years ago
in spring 2002 in Milan and the ISC 30 years ago in summer 1981 in Florence. For the second time we experience
a joint ECCMID/ICC congress. In these years ECCMID has steadily grown in importance while ICC has become a
classic worldwide biennial meeting for antimicrobial chemotherapy since 1961.
We are pleased to offer you an excellent scientific programme, running over four days, with stimulating keynote
lectures and symposia on parallel tracks with the involvement of a high number of internationally-renowned
experts. The programme provides an unique opportunity for debate, discussion and the exchange of important
ideas and information in the fields of clinical microbiology, antimicrobial chemotherapy and infectious diseases.
In addition, your contributions were highly welcomed and are presented in oral sessions or poster exhibitions
that undoubtedly increase the knowledge of the latest scientific developments in these fields. Many great
scientists and experts from all over the world are taking part in this important joint meeting, where both clinical
and experimental research are showcased.
The Milano Convention Centre (MIC), located right in the centre of town, has been recently completely renewed and
is an even more attractive venue to meet old friends and to establish new and interesting contacts. The warm
hospitality of this northern Italian city undoubtedly enhances the enjoyment of your stay. Milan is a sprawling
metropolis, but most of its attractions are concentrated in the city centre, between the Duomo (cathedral) and the
Castello Sforzesco. Milan is renowned throughout the world for its fine arts, grand music and, of course, it is one
of the most important fashion capitals. Immediately north of the Duomo, you may find not only the Brera Art
Galleries but also fashionable shopping avenues where you can sample all the different aspects of this important
European city.
We hope that this second joint meeting becomes a reference model for the exchange of scientific information in
the future. We wish you a fruitful meeting and a pleasant stay in Milan!

Rino Rappuoli
Born 1952 in Siena, Italy; Global Head Vaccines Research,
Novartis Vaccines & Diagnostics, Siena, Italy.
In the past decade Rino Rappuoli has become one of
the major experts in vaccines and vaccinology unanimously recognised worldwide. Thanks to his contributions and original thinking, he has changed the way vaccines are made and the way they are conceived in the
research arena, and he had a great impact on the public
health perspective. His contributions in the field of vaccinology encompass broad areas. He characterised the
non-toxic mutant of diphtheria toxin (referred to as
CRM197) that is now utilised as a carrier molecule for
many efficacious conjugate vaccines, such as those
against pneumococci, Haemophilus, meningococci, etc.
His original work paved the way to the genetic detoxification of bacterial toxins which led to the development of
a novel vaccine against pertussis and to development of
a family of strong mucosal adjuvants based on Escherichia coli heat-labile enterotoxin. He first conceived
and applied the notion of reverse vaccinology, based on
the systematic mining of microbial genomes. This novel
experimental approach has allowed the development of
a vaccine against group B meningococci which is showing now its efficacy in clinical studies in very young children. This new methodology is now being successfully
applied to the development of vaccines to other bacteria,
such as group A and B streptococci, pneumococci, etc.
Last but not least, his work on the development of novel
adjuvant allowed the registration of the first oil-in-water
adjuvant (MF59) for human use with an influenza vaccine. This work represented the basis for the development of efficacious vaccines against pandemic influenza, both of avian and of swine origin.

ESCMID Award for Excellence
in Clinical Microbiology
and Infectious Diseases
In addition to his active involvement in the private sector, he has always been actively involved in aspects related to development of vaccines for developing countries. For several years Rino Rappuoli served in and
chaired various committees, including the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), dealing with
vaccine development. More recently, he was instrumental in the creation in 2008 of the Novartis Vaccines Institutes for Global Health (NVGH), whose mission is the
development of vaccines against neglected diseases.
Rino Rappuoli is the author/co-author of more than
500 scientific publications, the majority in peer-reviewed
journals. He has edited more than twelve books in various fields of vaccinology.
The excellence of his work has been recognised by a
long series of international awards, such as the Paul Ehrlich and Ludwig Darmstaedter Prize in 1991, the European Federation of the Pharmaceutical Industries Association Award in 1992, the Arima Award for Applied Microbiology in 2002, the Gold Medal Award by the President
of the Italian Republic in 2005, the Miami Nature Biotechnology Winter Symposium Special Achievement
Award in 2007, the Albert B. Sabin Gold Medal Award in
2007, among others. In addition, in 2005 he was elected
as a full member to the National Academy of Sciences of
the USA.
Rino Rappuoli will be presented the ESCMID Excellence Award by Giuseppe Cornaglia, ESCMID President
and Chairman of the Awards Subcommittee, on Sunday,
8 May 2011. During the ceremony he will give his award
lecture: ‘Vaccines, medicine and public health in the XXI
century’.

ESCMID Young Investigator Awards for Research in Clinical
Microbiology and Infectious Diseases
Surbhi Malhotra-Kumar
Born 1972 in Sirsa, India; PhD, Senior Research Fellow at
the Laboratory of Medical Microbiology, Vaccine and Infectious Disease Institute, University of Antwerp, Belgium, in recognition of her outstanding achievements in
bridging the gap between basic and ecologic research
and in trying to link antibiotic use to the emergence and
persistence of antibiotic resistance.
Surbhi Malhotra-Kumar will be presented her award
during the ESCMID Young Investigator Awards Session
on Tuesday, 10 May 2011. During the session, she will
give a talk on ‘Changing perspectives on antibiotic therapy: from proving the obvious to exploring innovative
strategies’.
Research Interests
Surbhi Malhotra-Kumar completed her Masters in Medical Microbiology in 1998, Masters in Molecular Biology
in 2003; and a PhD in Medical Microbiology in 2005 under the supervision of Herman Goossens. The research
of Surbhi Malhotra-Kumar has focused on the molecular
epidemiology and genetics of resistance to common
groups of antimicrobials in oral streptococci. Applying
molecular biological techniques on oro-pharyngeal
streptococcal flora in healthy individuals as a model,
she demonstrated that antibiotic use is the single most
important driver of antibiotic-resistance in vivo, that
antibiotics belonging to the same class can differ widely in resistance gene selection, and that differences in
predominance of certain resistance genes in geographically distinct areas might be linked to the preferential
use of specific antibiotic subclasses. Her current research interests include studying the impact of antibiotic use on the naso-oro-pharyngeal and intestinal
microbiome, mechanisms of biofilm formation, animal
models of infection, and developing rapid diagnostic assays for pathogens causing community-acquired and
nosocomial infections.
Annelies Zinkernagel
Born 1972 in Basel, Switzerland, Attending Senior Physician, Division of Infectious Diseases and Hospital Epidemiology, University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland, in recognition of her impact on our understanding of critical
aspects of the interaction between streptococci and
staphylococci and the host innate immune system.
Annelies Zinkernagel will be presented her award
during the ESCMID Young Investigator Awards Session
on Tuesday, 10 May 2011. During the session, she will
give a talk titled ‘Know your enemy – Group A streptococcal virulence factors’.
Research Interests
Annelies Zinkernagel completed her training in Internal
Medicine (2002) and Infectious Diseases in 2005 at
the University Hospital of Zurich, Switzerland, followed
by a PhD in 2009 and postdoctoral fellowship in the
laboratory of Victor Nizet in San Diego, California, USA.
There she studied group A streptococcal virulence factors and how these allow the bacteria to evade the
host’s innate immune system. Currently she combines
her clinical and laboratory expertise and works as an attending infectious disease specialist at the University
Hospital of Zurich, Switzerland, where she also leads an
independent research group. Her translational research
focuses on understanding bacterial virulence factors
and corresponding innate immune response pathways.
Improved knowledge on host pathogen interaction may
allow to develop novel treatment options that can either
neutralize the bacterial virulence factors or boost the
host defense and improve outcome in patients suffering from infectious diseases.
The Young Investigator Awards
are sponsored by Pfizer.

Introduction to the Scientific Programme
Educational Workshops
At the beginning of ECCMID / ICC on Saturday morning, 7 May 2011,
from 08.45–10.45, 08.45–13.00 and 11.00–13.00 several educational workshops will take place. They are organised in cooperation
with ESCMID Study Groups, ISC Working Groups and other organisations. Participation in the educational workshops is free of
charge; however, delegates must register in advance as places are
limited. If you are not yet registered and would like to attend,
please go to the “New Registration” counters in the registration
area onsite.
Meet-the-Expert Sessions
Sunday through Tuesday, the day will start at 07.45 with up to
six Meet-the-Expert Sessions led by experts in their field. These
sessions count on active participation of the audience. After a
short presentation, the expert will open the session for discussion.
Coffee will be offered.
TAE Trainees Day
On Saturday, 7 May 2011, 13.15–18.45, the Trainee Association
of ESCMID (TAE) organises the first European Trainees Day, a day
of teaching dedicated to the unique needs of trainees. During this
session various topics in CM and ID will be discussed in a highly
interactive way between trainees and experienced CM and ID
specialists. A second and equally important aim of the day is to
give trainees an opportunity to meet and network with each other.
Participation is free of charge; however, delegates must register in
advance as places are limited. If you are not yet registered and
would like to attend, please go to the “New Registration” counters
in the registration area onsite.
Keynote and Award Lectures
Sunday through Tuesday at 11.30 and 14.30, lectures of 60 minutes
will be given by opinion leaders in their fields as well as by the
winner of the ISC Award and the ESCMID Award for Excellence 2011.
Symposia
From 09.00–11.00, from 11.30–12.30, from 14.30–15.30 and
from 16.00–18.00 each day, parallel symposia will convene
renowned speakers from Europe and other continents who
will cover a wide range of recent developments in their field. On
Tuesday, 10 May 2011, the last round of symposia takes place
from 13.30–15.30. A number of symposia are arranged in cooperation with ESCMID Study Groups and ISC Working Groups;
some symposia are jointly organised with other societies or
organisations.
Symposia arranged by the industry are organised in close cooperation with the ECCMID / ICC Programme Committee. They are an
integral part of the scientific programme (Integrated Symposia).
Oral Sessions
During the same time slots as the above-mentioned symposia,
you will also find sessions composed of abstracts selected for oral
presentation, which are indicated by the prefix "O" in front of the
programme numbers. The presenting author is indicated with an
asterisk (*).
Poster Sessions
Most of the accepted abstracts are scheduled for poster presentation from Saturday through Tuesday. The selection was based on
a blind review by at least three experts in each field. The posters
are displayed in Hall B of the convention centre. The poster area
is open to all participants on Saturday from 12.00–19.00, on
Sunday and Monday from 08.00–18.00 and on Tuesday from
08.00–16.00. Please note that posters are exchanged on a daily
basis. Poster authors must be present at their posters for
discussion during their poster session (see page 39 for details).
The presenting author is indicated by an asterisk (*). Posters
submitted prior to the congress for inclusion in the online poster
library can be viewed on PCs next to the poster desk during
the entire congress or on the congress website. Scan this tag to
access the online library or visit the congress website.

Publication Only
Due to a large response to the call for abstracts, the Programme
Committee had to restrict the number of abstracts for presentation
during the meeting. Abstracts of this category are not included in
the Final Programme but are published in the online library to
Clinical Microbiology and Infection (CMI), and on the congress
website. Scan this tag to access the online library or visit the
