    QUEBEC CITY, July 25 /CNW Telbec/ - From July 27 to August 1 2008, the

    "CPT 2008 will follow the tradition of previous CPT conferences in
promoting exchanges and cooperation at a global level through free discussions
on the development of new medications and their usage," said Dr. Marc LeBel,
co-chair of CPT 2008.
    Numerous subjects will be presented, including progress in cancer
treatment, the development of new medications for children, and drug selection
and dosage during pregnancy. An entire symposium will be dedicated to
challenges in clinical pharmacology in Africa where traditional medicines,
drug regulation and rational use of medicines treatments for AIDS will be
discussed.
    Several international and national organizations with a focus on drug
research and usage will be convening meetings during CPT 2008 like the WHO
(World Health Organization), Health Canada and the US FDA (US Food and Drug
Administration).

    The organizers, namely the Canadian Society for Clinical Pharmacology,
IUPHAR (International Union of basic and clinical PHARmacology) and the
National Research Council of Canada, are happy to welcome all participants to
