Nervous System 2018

About Conference


Nervous System 2018 Organizing Committee, invites all the participants from all over the world to attend “International conference on Nervous System and Nerve Diseases” during September 17-18, 2018 at Philadelphia, USA. This gathering is predominantly will focus the most recent and energizing developments in each range of Nervous System research and it will offer an exceptional opportunity for specialists from all over the world to meet, network, and distinguish with different scientific interactions.

The nervous system is the part of our body that consists of two major parts namely Central Nervous System and Peripheral Nervous System. CNS consists of Brain and Spinal Cord and PNS consists of Ganglia and nerves outside the Brain and Spinal cord. The main function of CNS is to control the activities of the body and PNS is responsible for the connection between CNS and limbs and other organs in the body. The brain is shielded with skull bones and the spinal cord streams from the back of the brain, down the focal point of the spine in the spinal channel, halting in the lumbar region. The retina, optic nerve, olfactory nerves and olfactory epithelium are thought to be the part of Central nervous system.  

Since PNS is not protected with skull or any column, it is often exposed to toxins and mechanical injuries. PNS is subdivided into somatic Nervous system and Autonomic Nervous System. Peripheral Neuropathy refers to the damage caused in the peripheral nerve that disrupts the passage of messages between CNS and PNS. The spinal cord and Brian are covered with the membrane called Meningitis.

There are about more than 100 different kinds of Nervous Disorders. The commonness of myasthenia gravis in the United States is assessed at 14 to 20 for each 100,000 populaces, around 36,000 to 60,000 cases in the United States. Notwithstanding, myasthenia gravis remains underdiagnosed and the predominance is most likely higher. Myasthenia Gravis is an autoimmune disease that occurs when there is disruption in transferring nerve signals to the muscles.

 Approximately 20 million adults in USA are affected with diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy. About 86 million people with pre- diabetes are at risk of having Peripheral Neuropathy, from where 21.5 million were diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy. It is estimated that 20- 50% of HIV patients were suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy. 30% of cancer survivors were suffering from Chemotherapy induced Peripheral Neuropathy. The fact is that about half of the 42.5 million people don’t even know that they are affected with Neuropathy.  

 

Why to attend?

Nervous System 2018 will provide an opportunity to world researchers working in era of neurological disorders to deliver talk on their research. It will be a great opportunity to the speakers, experts, researchers from both academics and industrialist to discuss their research and views.

Session on Nervous System

Nervous System comprises of Central Nervous System and Peripheral Nervous System. Nervous System consists of two types of cells namely neurons and glial cells. Neurons communicate with other cells through synapses which allow transmission of signals either electrical or chemical signals. Neurons possesses axons, a protoplasmic bulge that can stretch out to distant parts of the body and make a huge number of synaptic contacts. Axons much of the time go through the body in groups called nerves.Glial cells are non- neuronal cells, that offer support and nourishment, retain homeostasis, form myelin and involve in the signal transmission in the nervous system.

The Nervous System has three overlapping functions such as sensory input, intergration and motor output. At a more integrative level, the fundamental function of Nervous system is to control and communicate information all through the body

Session on Central Nervous System

Brachial Plexus is a connective Nerve that provides movements to shoulder, arm and hand which is in the neck region of the Spinal Cord. This nerve is composed of four cervical Nerve roots and the first thoracic nerve root. A birth Brachial Plexus injury is caused at the time delivery process. It was found to occur in 1.5 of every 1000 live births. Traumatic Brachial Plexus Injury is due to road accidents. Injuries are classified into four types namely Avulsion, Rupture, Neuroma, Neurapraxia. Surgery should be done to avulsion and rupture injuries. For Neuroma and Neuropraxia, the range of improvement varies. Many patients of Neuropraxia have gained 90-100% of their functions after the surgery.

Session on ANS and PNS

Peripheral Nervous system contains Ganglia and Nerves outside the Brain and spinal cord. PNS often exposed to toxins and mechanical injuries since it is not protected by skull or vertebral column. PNS is partitioned into Somatic Nervous System and Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). The predominant function is to carry signals from Central Nervous System to all other organs of the body.

ANS controls certain body function such as blood pressure and heart rates without any conscious effort of the person. Two neurotransmitters used to interact within the autonomic nervous system are Acetylcholine and Norepinephrine. Other functions are body temperature, digestion, urination, defecation and production of body fluids.

Session on Brain and Spinal Cord injury

Spinal cord injury is the most devastating injury and over 17,000 Americans are affected by spinal cord injury each year. Around 5 lakhs people suffer spinal cord injury every year all over the world. 90% of the cases are due to traumatic causes. There are two stages in the treatments of Spinal Cord Injury namely Acute phase and rehabilitation phase.

Brain injury can be broadly classified into primary and secondary brain injury. There are two types of brain injuries: Traumatic brain injury and Diffuse axonal injury. In brain and spinal cord injuries, the transmission of impulses from Central nervous system to PNS is disrupted thereby affects the whole Nervous System.

Session on Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is a disorder in which the myelin sheath that covers most of the nerve fibers is damaged or destroyed. The cause is unknown but it is an autoimmune disorder. This disorder is also called demyelination. Symptoms is based on the nerve fiber that are demyelinated. Moreover, the typical patterns of symptoms are Relapsing-remitting pattern, Primary progressive pattern, Secondary progressive pattern, Progressive relapsing pattern. If the sheath is able to repair nerve fibers, the normal function of nerve fibers can be recovered. Nonetheless, if the sheath is extremely damaged, the nerve fiber can be destroyed completely. The nerve fibers in CNS cannot be regenerated by themselves. Consequently, these nerve fibers are permanently damaged.

Market Analysis

ThemeExploring Novelty and Vision on Nervous System and Nerve Disorders

On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee, it is our heartiest welcome you to the "International Conference on Nervous System and Nerve Diseases" during September 17-182018 in Philadelphia, USA.

Importance and Scope:

The nervous system is a complex system of nerves and cells that convey messages to and from the brain and spinal cord to different parts of the body. The Nervous system incorporates both the Central sensory system and Peripheral sensory system. The Central nervous system is comprised of the brain and spinal cord and the Peripheral nervous system is comprised of the Somatic and the Autonomic nervous systems.

The Nervous Disorders may involve:

  • Vascular disorders
  • Infections
  • Structural disorders
  • Functional disorders
  • Degeneration

Group of neurological disorders that affect the structure and function of brain and spinal cord is termed as Central Nervous System Disorders. Some of them are Addiction, Autism, Bipolar disorder, Depression, Encephalitis, Epilepsy/Seizures, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson's Disease.

Peripheral Nervous system disorder mainly causes due to damage occurred to peripheral nerves resulting in weakness, numbness, and usually in hands and feet. Peripheral Neuropathy is caused due to traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems, inherited causes and exposure to toxins, and most commonly by diabetes mellitus.

Electrodiagnostic studies are a critical early stride in the analytic assessment and give data on the confinement and pathophysiology of nerve damage.

Why Philadelphia?

Philadelphia is the largest city in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and sixth most populous city in United states with the population of 1.5million as of 2016.

It is known for its arts, culture and rich history, attracting about 41million local tourists lone in 2015. This city is the birth place of United states firsts namely first library, first hospital and medical school, first Capital, first stock exchange, first zoo, and first business school.

The 67 National Historic Landmarks in the city helped account for the $10 billion generated by tourism. Philadelphia has become one of the top international study destination and emerged into an educational and economic hub.

Philadelphia's economic areas incorporate information innovation, oil refining, Food processing, human services, biotechnology, tourism, and budgetary administrations. Money related exercises represent the biggest segment of the metropolitan zone's economy, and it is one of the biggest wellbeing education and research centers in the United States.

This city is notable for its museums of art such as the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the Rodin Museum. Pennsylvania Museum of Art is the largest museum in the United States.

The U.S. Census Bureau stated that, the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population is geriatric group. In the base 2016, North America was observed as the largest market for peripheral neuropathy. The rising geriatric population, growing incidences of diabetes in the region is the prime factor driving the North America peripheral neuropathy market.

 

Market Value of PNS Globally

Geriatric and obese population is growing at a rapid pace across the world and these people are at high risk for developing peripheral neuropathy. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated, that people who are diagnosed with diabetes mostly obese. Thus, with rising geriatric population and growing prevalence of diabetes propels the global market demand of peripheral neuropathy treatment.  According to World Health Organization (WHO) estimates, the global geriatric population would increase from 524 million in 2010 to around 2 billion by 2050. Moreover, the global geriatric population would grow at the fastest rate in developed countries such as the U.S., the U.K. and Japan. World Health Organization (WHO) stated in 2012 that, more than 40 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese. Moreover, it has also estimated that 10% of the world adult population was obese in the year 2012.

 

Market growth of PNS Globally

According to the latest market report the global peripheral neuropathy market was valued at US$ 1,470.9 million in 2016, and is expected to reach US$ 1,998.8 million by 2025, expanding at the rate of 3.2% from 2017 to 2025.
