Hepatitis 2016

The liver supports almost every organ in the body and is vital for survival. Because of its strategic location and multidimensional functions, the liver is also prone to many diseases. Hepatitis is a common condition of inflammation of the liver. The most usual cause of this is viral, and the most common of these infections are hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E. Infection with hepatitis B virus or hepatitis C virus is the main cause of liver cancer. Other disorders caused by excessive alcohol consumption are grouped under alcoholic liver diseases and these include alcoholic hepatitis, fatty liver, and cirrhosis. Liver damage can also be caused by drugs, particularly paracetomol and drugs used to treat cancer.

Track 1: Genetic and Metabolic Liver Diseases

There are many inherited metabolic and genetic disorders that may have a pathologic impact on the liver. Haemochromatosis, Gilbert syndrome and Wilson’s disease are genetic disorders caused by accumulation of iron, bilirubin and copper in the liver. Alpha1-antitrypsin (α1-AT) deficiency is a disorder in which the normal processing of a liver-produced protein is disturbed within the liver cell.

Track 2: Hepatitis Care and Cure

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 (HCV) 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 3: Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a liver infection caused by the Hepatitis B virus (HBV). HBV is transmitted through activities that involve percutaneous or mucosal contact with infectious blood or body fluids. HBV can survive outside the body at least 7 days and still be capable of causing infection. The best way to prevent hepatitis B is by getting the hepatitis B vaccine. The pathogenesis and clinical manifestations of hepatitis B are due to the interaction of the virus and the host immune system, which lead to liver injury and potentially cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Patients can have either an acute symptomatic disease or an asymptomatic disease.

Track 4: Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a devastating viral disease that generally progresses slowly, meaning patients often remain asymptomatic and unaware they are infected until very serious and often expensive complications emerge as a result of damage to the liver. It is estimated that about half of those infected are not aware that they carry the virus. The recent remarkable advances in treating hepatitis C built on incremental improvements achieved over the previous two decades to transform hepatitis C from a chronic, fatal disease, to an infection that with new and forthcoming treatments, can be potentially cured.

Track 5: Hepatitis Vaccination

The best way to prevent hepatitis is by getting the hepatitis vaccines. Vaccination is safe and effective and it is recommended for all. Efforts to develop a hepatitis C vaccine started more than 20 years ago, when the hepatitis C virus was identified. The hepatitis C virus is more variable than are the viruses that cause hepatitis A and hepatitis B. Hepatitis C virus occurs in at least six genetically distinct forms with 50 subtypes. A global vaccine would have to protect against all these variants of the virus.

Track 6: Liver Diseases Diagnostics

Screening 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.

Track 7: Liver Diseases

Liver diseases are caused by metabolic, genetic drug induced and due to autoimmune diseases. Hepatic coma also known as Hepatic encephalopathy is a metabolic abnormality caused by accumulation of toxic substances in the bloodstream that are normally removed by the liver. Haemochromatosis is a genetic disorder caused by accumulation of iron in the liver. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a drug induced liver disease caused by accumulation of extra fat in liver cells that is not caused by alcohol, whereas Alcoholic liver disease is due to overconsumption of alcohol. Primary biliary cirrhosis is an autoimmune disease of the liver in which the bile ducts in liver are slowly destroyed.

Track 8: Liver Cancer

Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most common form of liver cancer in adults. It begins in the hepatocytes, the main type of liver cell. The production of cancer cells in the Liver is called hepato-carcinogenesis. Research is going on to develop drugs that builds liver cancer immunity and also identifying and understanding cancer stem cells and their properties to develop effective anti-cancer therapies.

Track 10: Non-Viral Hepatitis

Non-viral hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver caused by toxins, drugs, or other harmful chemicals that destroy cells in the liver (Hepatocytes). Acute hepatitis damages hepatocytes, make up 70-85% of the total mass of the liver. The disease is a growing problem due to the increasing number of dietary supplements with liver side effects. If hepatitis leads to liver failure, a liver transplant is the only treatment option that can improve survival

Track 11: Drug Discovery for Treatment of Hepatitis

In recent years, tremendous research advances are transforming treatment of Hepatitis. More than 90% of patients with the most common form of the disease can expect to be cured in as little as 8 weeks with newly approved antiviral therapies. More new medicines are on the way. Most of this progress has occurred in just the last three years with newer and more effective therapies transforming the trajectory of the disease for many patients. The scientific advances made in recent years by biopharmaceutical researchers as they combat the hepatitis C virus have already begun to have a tangible impact on thousands of patients.

The liver supports almost every organ in the body and is vital for survival. Because of its strategic location and multidimensional functions, the liver is also prone to many diseases. Hepatitis is a common condition of inflammation of the liver. The most usual cause of this is viral, and the most common of these infections are hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E. Infection with hepatitis B virus or hepatitis C virus is the main cause of liver cancer. Other disorders caused by excessive alcohol consumption are grouped under alcoholic liver diseases and these include alcoholic hepatitis, fatty liver, and cirrhosis. Liver damage can also be caused by drugs, particularly paracetomol and drugs used to treat cancer.

Pregnancy and Liver Diseases

 

Liver diseases are caused by metabolic, genetic drug induced and due to autoimmune diseases. Hepatic coma also known as Hepatic encephalopathy is a metabolic abnormality caused by accumulation of toxic substances in the bloodstream that are normally removed by the liver. Haemochromatosis is a genetic disorder caused by accumulation of iron in the liver. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a drug induced liver disease caused by accumulation of extra fat in liver cells that is not caused by alcohol, whereas Alcoholic liver disease is due to overconsumption of alcohol. Primary biliary cirrhosis is an autoimmune disease of the liver in which the bile ducts in liver are slowly destroyed. - See more at: http://hepatitis.omicsgroup.com/call-for-abstracts.php#sthash.jZAbmZHM.dpu

Hepatitis is an inflammatory disorder of the liver, caused by viruses, drugs, and toxins. Viral hepatitis is one of the major global health care problems and kills around 1.5 million people worldwide every year. The prevalence of viral hepatitis varies from region to region, but is generally higher in Middle Eastern countries. The three major viruses that affect the liver, hepatitis A, B, and C (HAV, HBV, HCV). HAV is the most common cause of acute hepatitis in children in the Middle East. 10,000,000 new cases of Hepatitis A reported globally every year. The prevalence of HAV in Iran is very high. The seroprevalence of HAV was 85% in the capital Tehran, 96% in Hormozgan in southern Iran, and 99% in Golestan in the north of the country. In most areas of Iran, more than 90% of people aged 33 years or older are seropositive for anti-HAV antibody. The rate in the Middle East varies from 0.6% in Iraq to more than 8% in Sudan. The rate is 5.1% in Yemen, 3.6% in Algeria, and 3.5% in Kuwait and the occupied Palestinian territory.

More than 2 000 million people alive today have been infected with HBV at some time in their lives. Of these, about 350 million remain infected chronically and become carriers of the virus. Three quarters of the world’s population live in areas where there are high levels of infection. Every year there are over 4 million acute clinical cases of HBV, and about 25% of carriers, 1 million people a year, die from chronic active hepatitis, cirrhosis or primary liver cancer. High endemicity areas include sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, the central Asian Republics, and some countries in eastern Europe. In these areas, about 70 to 90% of the population becomes HBV-infected before the age of 40, and 8 to 20% of people are HBV carriers. In countries such as China, Senegal, and Thailand, infection rates are very high in infants, and continue through early childhood. At that stage the prevalence of HBsAg in serum may exceed 25%. HBV is well studied in Saudi Arabia where the prevalence in the general population is 4.25%. The genotype of the virus D predominates in the Middle East.

The highest prevalence (17.5%) of HCV in the world was reported in Egypt. The pooled prevalence of HCV in haemodialysis patients is 16% in Iran, 56% in Saudi Arabia, 52% in Syria, and 34% in Sudan. Patients infected with HBV and HCV have an increased risk of developing various liver diseases, including cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma: 15–40% of patients infected with HBV are at risk of developing cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma if left untreated. Roughly 1.5 million people in Iran are living with HBV and are at risk of developing cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. The high prevalence of HBV and HCV infections in some countries in the Middle East is alarming and is a challenge for health-care policy makers. Raising public awareness of viral hepatitis risk factors is an important step. Hepatitis screening in selected risk groups need to be implemented to reduce the future burden of viral infection.

Scope:

Hepatitis 2016 Conference is to bring top experts together and delegates for an in-depth discussion on Hepatitis and Liver diseases. To create awareness for both rural and urban population about liver disease it should be diagnosed at early stages. The importance of this conference is to update, clinically relevant audience regarding the evidence supporting current clinical practices in hepatocellular carcinoma and hepatitis medicine. The information presented is intended to enhance clinical competence in the diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis and liver disease. Hepatitis 2016 describes the health risks and effects associated with the Human life. This Conference will address scientific research to take new steps in therapeutics & techniques involved.  The conference we are conducting on liver disease is to get awareness in the people. It will explain how to protect liver from hepatitis and other viral disease.
