Hepatology 2016

Track 1: Hepatology

Hepatology is the branch of medicine that incorporates the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas function as well as management of their disorders. The study of these organ deals with the understanding of clinical syndrome of non-cirrhotic portal hypertension and Congenital Hepatic Fibrosis; study the biological processes underlying the development of hepatic regeneration and study aspects of viral hepatitis that allow insight into disease mechanisms.

Track 2: Diagnosing Liver Diseases

Diagnosis for Liver diseases has been advocated with the intention of intervening to halt its progression. Abnormal liver tests are those that measure synthesis of proteins made by the liver (albumin, clotting factors) or the liver's capacity to metabolize drugs. The impact of diagnosis of hepatitis C virus on quality of life is worse in patients aware of their viral status compared with individuals unaware of their viral status. Ultrasound-based transient elastography is the advanced technology more commonly used for the assessment of chronic liver diseases. It is also used to predict complications in patients with Liver cirrhosis.

Track 3: HBV and HCV Vaccines

The Food and Drug Administration approved the first vaccine for hepatitis B in 1981. The currently used hepatitis B vaccines are made synthetically. The global market for hepatitis B vaccine is growing at a significant rate due to increasing number of cases with hepatitis B infection. In addition, growing population and growing awareness for improved healthcare facilities is increasing the global market for hepatitis B vaccine. North America dominates the global hepatitis B vaccines market due to increasing prevalence of hepatitis B infection cases and improved healthcare facilities in the region. In addition, government initiatives and more awareness among the people are some of the major factors driving the hepatitis B vaccines market. Asia, followed by Europe, is expected to experience high growth rate in the next few years in hepatitis B vaccines market. China and India are expected to be the fastest growing hepatitis B vaccines markets in Asian region.

Track 4: Liver Diseases

Liver is responsible for many critical functions within the body. It helps your body digest food, store energy, and remove poisons. If it becomes diseased or injured, the loss of those functions can cause significant damage to the body. There are over 100 different forms of liver disease that affect men, women and children. These diseases include cirrhosis, alcohol abuse, hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E, Epstein Barr virus (infectious mononucleosis), non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and iron overload (hemochromatosis). The main symptoms of liver imbalance include weakness and fatigue, weight loss, nausea, vomiting, and yellow discoloration of the skin (jaundice).

Track 5: Viral and Non-viral Hepatitis

Treatment of Hepatitis is on the cutting edge of medicine. Hepatitis B virus infection (HBV) has been recognized as a major health problem worldwide and Hepatitis C virus infection is the most common chronic blood borne infection in the United States. Viral hepatitis treatment depends on how active the virus is in your body. Viral hepatitis is the most common cause of hepatitis worldwide. Other causes of non-viral hepatitis include alcoholic hepatitis and autoimmune hepatitis.

Track 6: Hepatitis Antigens and Antibodies

Hepatitis Be antigen (HBeAg) is found in the early phase of hepatitis B infection soon after hepatitis Bs antigen becomes detectable. Serum levels of both antigens rise rapidly during the period of viral replication. The presence of HBeAg correlates with hepatitis B virus (HBV) infectivity, the number of viral Dane particles, the presence of core antigen in the nucleus of the hepatocyte, and presence of viral DNA polymerase in serum. During recovery from acute hepatitis B, after HBeAg level declines and becomes undetectable, HBe antibody (anti-HBe) appears in the serum. Anti-HBe usually remains detectable for several years after recovery from acute infection.

Track 7: Hepatocellular Carcinoma and Pancreatic Cancer           

Hepatocellular carcinoma accounts for most liver cancers. This type of liver cancer occurs more often in men than women and is usually seen in people age 50 or older. It is commonly associated with cirrhosis and hepatitis. The incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma is highest in Asia and Africa, where the endemic high prevalence of hepatitis B and hepatitis C strongly predisposes to the development of chronic liver disease and subsequent development of hepatocellular carcinoma. Other risk factors can include a history of alcohol abuse.

Track 8: Pancreatic and Biliary Duct Diseases

The pancreas and biliary tract is crucial secondary organ for the human digestive system as when they don't work properly, it affects the entire body. Pancreatic and biliary tract problems can cause severe abnormalities such as stomach pain, bloating, nausea and vomiting. Anyone with such symptoms, especially when they are severe and long lasting, should see a doctor immediately as to receive perfect care and prevention.

Track 9: Transplantation and Surgery

Liver transplantation surgery technique to replace a diseased or injured liver with a healthy liver delivered from a healthy person. The liver is involved in various metabolic functioning including metabolism of drugs and toxins, removing degradation products of normal body metabolism (for example clearance of ammonia and bilirubin from the blood), and synthesis of many important proteins and enzymes (such as factors necessary for blood to clot). Doctors or surgeons suggest liver transplant surgery to the patients who suffer from severe Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) or Chronic liver failure. This surgery carries a risk of other complications including infection, liver inflammation, blood clots, liver rejection, memory and thinking problems.

Track 10: Bile formation and Related Diseases

Bile is a fluid that is made and released by the liver and stored in the gallbladder. Bile helps with digestion. It breaks down fats into fatty acids, which can be taken into the body by the digestive tract. Bile contains mostly cholesterol, bile acids and bilirubin. It also contains water, body salts, copper and other metals.

Genetic and Metabolic Liver diseases

Hepatology is a branch of medicine concerned with the study, prevention, diagnosis and management of diseases that affect the liver, gallbladder, biliary tree and pancreas. Hepatitis is a medical condition defined by the inflammation of the liver. Most liver damage is caused by 3 hepatitis viruses, called hepatitis A, B and C. However, hepatitis can also be caused by alcohol and some other toxins and infections, as well as from our own autoimmune process (the body attacks itself). About 250 million people globally are thought to be affected by hepatitis C, while 300 million people are thought to be carriers of hepatitis B. According to WHO nearly 500 million people have chronic viral hepatitis worldwide. More than 1 million people die each year from causes related to viral hepatitis, commonly cirrhosis and liver cancer. Approximately 1 in 12 persons worldwide are living with chronic viral hepatitis. Currently, an estimated 5.5 million Americans (approximately 2 to 3 percent of adults) suffer from chronic liver disease or cirrhosis. The combined diagnoses of chronic liver disease, cirrhosis, viral hepatitis, and liver cancer make liver disease one of the 10 leading causes of death in the United States. While death rates from some forms of liver disease are decreasing, those for viral hepatitis and liver cancer are on the rise, both in the U.S. and worldwide. An estimated one quarter of Americans will suffer from a liver or biliary (gallbladder-related) disease at some point during their lifetime. Hepatitis, especially hepatitis C, is a chief cause of liver diseases.

Scope:

This conference will encourage innovative ideas and advanced diagnostic approaches towards the liver disease. It will share recent advancements and knowledge share about liver and pancreatic diseases and treatment strategies. The participant companies can display their product to gain the networks and to promote their upcoming new strategies for the future era.

The main aim of this conference is to gather Hepatologists, Gastroenterologists, Pathologists, Directors/CEO & Industry experts, Professors, Researchers, Scientists and Students of Hepatology and Liver diseases in all areas of  Liver diseases & Therapeutics and to provide an international forum for the dissemination of original research results, new ideas and practical development experiences related to the research.
