 22 March 2016: ICAAS General Assembly,Vienna

On March 22, ICAAS members gathered in Vienna (Austria) for the 2016 ICAAS annual board and general meetings. The participants discussed scientific activity conducted during 2015, especially ICAAS-sponsored clinical studies of arginine and leucine. Also, the members analyzed the “9th Amino Acid Assessment Workshop” (Paris, Oct. 2015) including the impact that Workshop may have upon future use of arginine, leucine and tryptophan in human nutrition.

In addition, the ICAAS members reviewed ongoing regulatory issues world-wide and discussed activity plan for 2016. Among others, attention was paid to the cooperation with US Pharmacopeia in order to modernize FCC monographs for branched-chain amino acids, as well as to regulatory activity in Brazil, Europe and China.

Vienna provided a splendid background for the whole meeting and the participants agreed to meet again next year in Asia.
