Stabilis, the database of stabilities and compatibilities of injectable drugs

Infostab is a non-profit making association under French law. The goal of the association is to promote the correct use of injectable drugs in hospital (preparation, administration, stability and compatibility).

The association publishes an international database of stabilities and compatibilities of injectable drugs, STABILIS, which is translated into 24 languages.

The Web site is mainly directed towards the aspects of stability and compatibility of injectable drugs with topical information, lists of publications and posters as well as links towards guidelines concerning stability studies, the sites of other databases or journals publishing on the subject.

Our congratulations to Dr Jean Vigneron and his colleagues for the great job!

The Faculty of Pharmacy of Lille and the European Association of Faculties of Pharmacy (EAFP) have the great honour and joy of inviting you to the annual conference, in Lille, France, 12th - 14th June 2008.

The Members of the Local Organizing Committee will do their utmost to make the conference and your stay in Lille an enjoyable and inspirational experience.

Lille, European Capital of Culture in 2004, Capital of Nord/Pas de Calais Region, is renowned for its architectural wealth from Baroque to Flemish style. Lille is also proud of its festive traditions (such as the Braderie, a giant jumble sale…) and its gastronomy (potjevleesch, Genièvre…). It still has a human dimension owing to the spirit of generosity and warmth of the Northerners. This in itself attracts tourists who explore Lille and its surrounding areas and towns, some rich with a history of trade and industry, and others with a cultural and festive tradition. Let yourself and accompanying persons be tempted and head out to explore these exceptional sites and districts of which we Northerners are so proud !
We wish you a most hearty welcome to Lille.

Professor Daniel Vion,

Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy,
Lille 2 University of Health and Law
