Sessions/Tracks

Conference Series LLC provides the perfect platform for global networking and we are truly delighted to invite you to be part of our 3rd International Conference on Epilepsy and Treatment, during Aug 31-Sep 01, 2017 Brussels, Belgium.

Epilepsy 2017  has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Committee

 The live format of this educational activity will be accredited with CME and CPD Credits.

 

Epilepsy is a chronic illness of the brain that affects individuals of all ages. More than 50 million people were affected worldwide. Synchronous brain cell activity causes seizures and relying upon the region of brain affected they will produce a range of behaviours.

Track 1: Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a CNS disorder in which disruption of nerve cell activity in the brain occurs and marked by loss of consciousness, or convulsions and sudden recurrent episodes of sensory disturbances. It is estimated that every year nearly 2.4 million people are suffering with Epilepsy and those with active epilepsy is between 4 to10 per 1000 people. Approximately 80% of the epilepsy patients are found in developing regions. Yearly NIH spends $30 billion for research in the field of medicine, but only ½ of 1% is spent on Epilepsy research. Epilepsy results in an estimated annual cost of $15.5 billion.

This session deals with Epilepsy and its related topics like Epilepsy in developing brain, Epileptogenesis, Genetics, Etiology and Epidemiology along with Translational research and its clinical aspects, Epilepsy drug market. And also our sessions explain how the Epileptic and Neuronal circuits wired in the “normal” brain which helps to determine how a fault leads to seizures.

Track 5: Diseases Associated with Epilepsy

In chronic conditions such as epilepsy, the concurrence of more than one ailment in a patient is the principle instead of the special case. The rate of neurobehavioral disorders like Neuropsychiatric and Bipolar Disorders, Sleep seizures, Mood disorders and Paroxysmal Movement Disorders is more in patients with epilepsy than in the overall public. Epilepsy is additionally connected with Depression, Overweight, Hemiplegia and Migraine. What's more, Sudden Unexpected Death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is a lethal complexity of epilepsy.

Track 9: Advanced Epilepsy Diagnosis Tests

Diagnosing epilepsy is to a great degree troublesome. Indeed, even doctors are also able to witness a seizure once in a while during the visit. It is exceptionally key to have an accurate history of the occasions that have already happened.

Diagnostic services to detect abnormalities in brain are Electroencephalogram(EEG), Functional MRI, Multimodal imaging, Functional dichotomy, Positron emission tomography, Computerized tomography (CT) examine, Single-photon discharge and Computerized Tomography. Neuropsychological Tests help specialists figure out which regions of your brain are affected. Next Generation Sequencing analyses the hereditary basis of epilepsies.

Track 10: Prevention and Management of Epilepsy

The best approach to prevent seizures connected with epilepsy is to keep away from the things that can trigger your seizures and quit Drugs & Alcohol. Management of patients with epilepsy is centred around three fundamental objectives: Controlling and aversion of seizures, Avoiding side affects of treatment and Restoring Quality of life.

This session includes a few measures like care during pregnancy to prevent potential health problems to the fetus, Management of Stress, Automobile safety, Balanced eating regimen and Exercise. The Seizure Biomarkers along with the Epileptogenesis biomarkers serve as restorative focuses for the improvement of new anti-epileptogenic and anti-seizure compounds.

Track 11: Epilepsy Therapeutics

Epilepsy Medications are backbones in controlling epileptic seizures. Individuals with epilepsy regularly encounter cognitive dysfunctioning and some other neurological and neurobehavioral disorders which might show a dynamic course associated with worsening seizure control.

So, novel treatments for seizures and the neurological comorbidities of epilepsy such as Gene therapy, Brain Stimulation, MicroRNA regulation, Stem Cells to the Rescue, Immunotherapy are mostly required. Our Epilepsy and Treatment meetings deal with many issues in the field of epilepsy research and novel therapeutic strategies. Surgical strategies are another measurement in treatment. What's more, the Ketogenic diet, Rehabilitation and the Seizure Altering Devices are additionally having the most extreme significance and Translational examination could be new and developing model that expects to enhance health of a patient by accelerating fundamental science revelations.

Track 12: Epilepsy Imitators

Numerous episodic phenomena including sensory, motor, autonomic, and behavioural functions might emulate epilepsy. They might bring about a symptom that resembles a seizure, yet they don't demonstrate the EEG changes in the brain that are normal for an Epileptic seizure.  

Some therapeutic conditions like Behavioural, Psychiatric and Psychological, Anoxic and Syncope Seizures, Paroxysmal Movement Disorders imitate certain parts of seizures yet may not be connected with an irregular electrical discharge in brain. Sleep related conditions include body shaking, jerks, rolling and head banging and Migraine related Disorders offer numerous clinical symptoms and fundamental pathophysiological mechanisms of Epilepsy.

About Conference

Omics International Conference Series provides the perfect platform for global networking and our Epilepsy Conference 2017 aims to gather the Professors, Researchers, Business Delegates, Scientists, students across the globe to provide an international forum for the dissemination of original research results, new ideas and practical development experiences. 

We are truly delighted to invite you to attend the 3rd International Conference on Epilepsy and Treatment, during Aug 31-Sep 01, 2017 at Brussels, Belgium. Epilepsy global summit will provide two days of robust discussions for the treatment of various types of Epilepsy and its effects in pregnant women, Infantile Seizures, Genetic causes, mutations and other novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies of Epilepsy. It will also explore new ideas and concepts on a global scale.

Epilepsy is a chronic brain disorder. More than 50 million people were affected worldwide. Synchronous brain cell activity causes seizures and depending on the region of brain affected they will produce a range of behaviours. It is estimated that every year nearly 2.4 million people are diagnosed with epilepsy and the population with active epilepsy is between 4 to10 per 1000 people. Nearly 80% of the individuals with epilepsy are found in developing regions. Historically, the epilepsy research has been under-funded.  Annually NIH spends $30 billion for medical research, but ½ of 1% is only spent on Epilepsy research. Of total medical costs Epilepsy alone results in an estimated annual cost of $15.5 billion.

Our Epileptic brain conference is assured to act as a catalyst for the advancement in Epilepsy by connecting adepts within and across disciplines under a single roof of knowledge, creating an environment conducive to information exchange, generation of new ideas and acceleration of applications to benefit the nascent research and society.

Importance and Scope:

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of the brain that affects people of all ages. According to WHO (World Health Organization) statistics more than 50 million people were affected worldwide. It is estimated that every year nearly 2.4 million people are diagnosed with epilepsy and the population with active epilepsy is between 4 to10 per 1000 people. Nearly 80% of the individuals with epilepsy are found in developing regions. Approximately 500,000 Italians suffer from epilepsy, of which 125,000 have treatment resistant forms. Historically, the epilepsy research has been under-funded. 

Annually NIH spends $30 billion for medical research, but ½ of 1% is only spent on epilepsy research. Of total medical costs Epilepsy alone results in an estimated annual cost of $15.5 billion. In developing countries, this figure is often close to twice as high due to the higher risk of experiencing conditions which leads to permanent brain damage. The risk of premature death in people with epilepsy is two to three times higher than it is for the general population.

Target Audience:

Neurologists, Epileptologists, Pharmacists, Research scientists, Epilepsy organizations, Pharmaceutical (drug design and discovery) companies, Anti- Epileptic drug Industries, Epilepsy associations & foundations, Professors and Students from Academia in the study of Epilepsy field.

Importance and Scope:

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of the brain that affects people of all ages. According to WHO (World Health Organization) statistics more than 50 million people were affected worldwide. It is estimated that every year nearly 2.4 million people are diagnosed with epilepsy and the population with active epilepsy is between 4 to10 per 1000 people. Nearly 80% of the individuals with epilepsy are found in developing regions. Approximately 500,000 Italians suffer from epilepsy, of which 125,000 have treatment resistant forms. Historically, the epilepsy research has been under-funded. 

Annually NIH spends $30 billion for medical research, but ½ of 1% is only spent on epilepsy research. Of total medical costs Epilepsy alone results in an estimated annual cost of $15.5 billion. In developing countries, this figure is often close to twice as high due to the higher risk of experiencing conditions which leads to permanent brain damage. The risk of premature death in people with epilepsy is two to three times higher than it is for the general population. 1

Why Belgium?

In Europe, at least 6 million people have epilepsy, and 15 million Europeans will have one seizure at some time in their lives. The prevalence of epilepsy in Europe is 8.2 per 1000 people. Nevertheless, in some countries of Europe, epilepsy is not recognized as a brain disorder, and up to 40% of people with this condition may be untreated - the treatment gap. It has been estimated that the 6 million people with active epilepsy in Europe cost over € 20 billion per year, and despite this, very few European countries have national plans for managing the disorder. The ILAE/IBE/WHO Global Campaign Against Epilepsy is working towards this goal. Let’s bring epilepsy out of the shadows, on behalf of and with the 6 million people with epilepsy in Europe.

The number of epilepsy specialists in Europe is highest of all WHO Regions. A wider range of therapeutic possibilities is available to people with epilepsy in Europe than elsewhere in the world. Epilepsy costs the countries of Europe over 20 billion Euro every year, an amount that could be significantly reduced with effective action.

Glance at Market share of Antiepileptic drugs:

The Epilepsy Drug Market Will Increase $800 Million by 2016, Primarily Due to Uptake of Premium-Priced Third-Generation Antiepileptic Drugs (AEDs). Decision Resources, one of the world’s leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that the epilepsy market will increase from $2.9 billion in 2011 to nearly $3.7 billion in 2016.

The major players in the antiepileptic market include Abbott Laboratories, Cephalon, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, Novartis AG, Pfizer, Sanofi-Aventis SA, Shire, and UCB Pharma. The AED market is currently dominated by UCB's Keppra and GlaxoSmithKline's Lamictal. Other key drugs include older generation AEDs such as Pfizer's Dilantin, Abbott's Depakote, and Novartis' Tegretol and Trileptal which still have significant usage due to their longevity in the market. However, the AED dominance landscape will continue to shift towards newer generation drugs particularly following the recent market entry of GlaxoSmithKline's Trobalt/Potiga and Eisai's Fycompa which both offer first-in-class mechanisms of action

The market share of Abbott and GSK is more or less same 11.5 %( Abbott) and 11.2 %( GSK). Other antiepileptic drugs companies’ market share includes Novartis (6.9%), Sanofi Aventis (4%), Shire (0.7%) and Cephalon (0.5%).
