Letter of the ISSTD President

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Executive Committee of International Society for the Study of Trophablastic Disease (ISSTD), It is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to the 19th world congress on gestational trophoblastic disease held in Amsterdam, the Netherland, September 21 to 24,     2017.

The congress will focus on the latest developments and controversy in biology, genetics, pathology, diagnosis, treatment and follow up of GTD and their variants.

The congress is also a unique platform for dedicated clinical experts and research scientists to present their work which provides valuable insights into the mechanisms and management of GTD, as well as to share their experiences and exchange scientific information.

Here, I would like to make a special thank to Prof. Leon Massuger and his team for their kind support and huge efforts in hosting this congress in short notice due to sudden venue change.

We are looking forward to greeting all colleagues and friends who are interested in gestational trophoblastic diseases.


Yang Xiang,

ISSTD president
