Founding of the Cutaneous Microdialysis Club.
The use of microdialysis for investigations in the skin is a rapidly expanding field of research. To facilitate contact between international study groups who use microdialysis to investigate the skin and the subcutaneous tissues, the Cutaneous Microdialysis Club was founded on April 22, 1997. The aims of this nonprofit society are to promote the knowledge of the technique, to promote the standardization and validation of cutaneous microdialysis, and to encourage investigations on and development of microdialysis instruments, dialysate analysis, and data interpretation. The club covers a variety of fields of interest in microdialysis: pharmacokinetics, percutaneous absorption, allergology and inflammation, neurotransmitters, immunology, endocrinology, and methodology. The society has members from 12 countries and will hold scientific meetings on selected topics on a regular basis.
