In the recent past, major achievements have been obtained in the understanding of the molecular defects at the basis of several different diseases. The field of 'Molecular Medicine' has thus become more solid, and several reports have been published linking the basic molecular investigation to the clinical practice. In line with this new approach to medicine a Symposium was organized where the linkage between investigations in basic science could be explored in view of clinical disorders, and vice versa. in Rosario, Argentina, September 9-11, 1999, molecular biologists, molecular pathologists and clinicians discussed the molecular defects possibly at the basis of some common diseases. This report summarizes the presentations and discussions during the symposium.
