Overview

The underlying philosophy of these two symposia on taurine remains the same as all those that have been held previously: the best way to remain current in the subject matter is to talk directly with the investigators at the forefront of the field. Thus, we brought together some 50 individuals from 11 different countries who have keen interests and active research programs in the many-faceted areas of taurine research. The meetings were held on October 8-10, 1991, in an elegant setting in a resort area at Orange Beach, Alabama, approximately 50 miles outside of Mobile on the Gulf Coast. The meetings were programmed as two separate Symposia held sequentially. The first symposia on October 8 was devoted exclusively to taurine research in the cat, primarily in the area of nutrition, and entitled "The Waltham Symposium on Taurine and Cat Nutrition". The second symposia on October 9 and 10 was open to all fields of taurine research and was entitled "International Taurine Symposium: New Dimensions on its Mechanisms of Actions". If the philosophy of these meetings was to bring both experts and novices together in a discussion and presentation of current taurine research, then the major purpose of the Proceedings is to document the current research efforts and to present an objective summary of where the taurine field stands today and where the focus will be in the future.

Proceedings of the Waltham Symposium on Taurine and Cat Nutrition, held October 1991, and of the International Taurine Symposium: New Dimensions on its Mechanisms of Action, held October 1991, in Orange Beach, Alabama. The single biggest factor in elucidating the many functions of taurine in the last 20 years has been the special importance of this compound for the cat, and the recognition of the importance of this animal in taurine research. The interests of pet food producers and veterinarians have ramifications for research involving the heart, development, the central nervous system, the lung, and osmoregulation. Annotation c.
