2nd International Conference On Epilepsy And Treatment


Epilepsy Conference:

Conference Series LLC provides the perfect platform for global networking and we are truly delighted to invite you to be part of our 2nd International Conference on Epilepsy and Treatment, during October 20-21, 2016 Rome, Italy.


Conference Highlights

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 2: Neurobiology and Pathophysiology of Epilepsy

Seizure is defined as an transient condition of signs and symptoms which occurs because of synchronous neuronal activity in brain. Semiology explains what should be recognized in a seizure. Neurobiology is about the study of cells and their organization into functional circuits that process information and mediate behavior of the nervous system.     

Pathophysiology is a convergence of pathology and physiology that explains the functional changes in a diseased condition. This session will review the pathways for seizure occurence, ion channel defects, the essential currency of Neuronal excitability, clinical signs, signalling, Inflammatory and mTOR pathways.

Track 3: Causes of Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a condition that damages brain and it’s activity. Its cause is unknown (idiopathic). There are various types of epilepsies with different causes like Prenatal Injuries, Genetic causes and Mutations, Environmental causes and it may be caused due to any Inflammation or Infection.

Track 4: 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 meeting deals 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. Clinical and Translational examination could be new and developing model that expects to enhance health of a patient by accelerating fundamental science revelations.

Track 5: Epilepsy in Women and Inborn

Epilepsy in women raises extraordinary reproductive and general wellbeing concerns. More than 1 million women and young girls are living with epilepsy and confronting numerous difficulties, from changes amid the menstrual cycle which might trigger seizures to concerns in regards to pregnancy.

We are discussing many novel health concerns of women with epilepsy such as Impact of seizures on pregnancy, Psychological Implications, Fetal biological changes in carrier and hormonal imbalance. The new born babies of women with epilepsy have a higher danger of imperfections, most likely identified with in-utero exposure to antiepileptic drugs bringing about Abnormalities in Newborns, Infantile Convulsions, NeonatalConvulsions and Choreoathetosis.

Track 6: Major Types of Epilepsies

Epilepsy is of numerous sorts with very surprising reasons, indications, and treatments. Epilepsy is not only one condition, it is an assorted group of disorders including numerous types of seizure. Few individuals have diverse sorts of seizures at various times. The present session includes Generalized Seizures, Intractable Epilepsy, Idiopathic Epilepsy, Refractory Epilepsy, Temporal lobe Epilepsy, Photosensitive and Focal Epilepsy, Rolandic Epilepsy and Childhood Epilepsy.

Track 7: Epileptic Syndromes

An Epilepsy Syndrome is illustrated by a variety of features usually happening together. These disorders give data about sorts of seizures, their course, what to expect and significantly more.

This session incorporates different sorts of seizures such as Absence and Myoclonic Seizures, Tonic-clonic Seizures, Non-epileptic Seizures, along with Angelman Syndrome, Dravet Syndrome, Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, Landau-Kleffner and West Syndromes having unique combinations of symptoms.

Track 8: 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 9: Prevention and Management of Epilepsy

The best appraoch 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 centered around three fundamental objectives: Controlling and aversion of seizures, Avoiding sideaffects 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 SeizureBiomarkers along with the Epileptogenesis biomarkers serve as restorative focuses for the improvement of new anti-epileptogenic and anti-seizure compounds.

Track 10: Impact of the Epilepsies on daily life

The effect of epilepsy is multifaceted and immense. The capriciousness of seizures forces extreme confinements on way of life and can restrain patient's social interactions.

Epilepsy can affect Mental Health, Education, Driving & Recreation, Employment, Marital Status and Pregnancy. Epilepsy can likewise bring about Stigmatization and social avoidance with pernicious impacts on an individual's confidence and self-regard.

Track 11: 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 12: Epilepsy Imitators

Numerous episodic phenomena including sensory, motor, autonomic, and behavioral 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 Behavioral, 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.

Track 13: Epilepsy Case Reports

A case report is a point by point report of the indications, signs, diagnosis, treatment, and examination of an individual patient. Case reports can likewise assume a significant part in therapeutic instruction, giving a structure to case-based learning and might likewise have a part to play in controlling the personalization of medications in clinical practice. This session deal with most important aspects of Epilepsy case reports related to diagnosis, treatment, medications and research.
