Theme: Innovations in Pancreatic Research and Treatment

Pancreas 2016

Renowned Speakers

Pancreas 2016

Pancreas is one of the digestive organs of the Gastrointestinal system. It has two essential functions - one endocrine and the other exocrine. It has been called two glands in one. Our pancreas is responsible for the digestion of the carbohydrates and fats in the body. It works in combination with the other digestive organs liver and gall bladder in order to produce endocrine hormones and exocrine digestive juices. We will be discussing in detail the anatomy, physiology, pathology and treatment of pancreatic diseases ranging from pancreatitis to pancreatic cancer in this conference. Speakers attending our conference are experts in the field and have been involved in research of novel techniques in the treatment of pancreatic ailments.

Track 1:Pancreas/ Pancreatology

Pancreas is one of the master chemists of the body that produce hormones exocrine and endocrine to assist in the digestion of food. It consists of different types of pancreatic cells. The exocrine cells include acinar cells and the endocrine cells are present in clusters of cells called the islets of Langerhans. The Islets of Langerhans function ith the help of pancreatic alpha, beta, delta and gamma cells. The gall bladder is small sac-shaped organ beneath the liver, in which bile is stored after secretion by the liver and before release into the intestine. Genetic screening studies have helped identify gene mutations that lead to pancreatic diseases and in identifying the changes in the pancreatic cells affected by diseases.

Track 3: Pancreatitis

Pancreatic diseases include acute and chronic pancreatitis characterized by severe inflammation of the pancreas. Pancreatitis may also be classified as hereditary pancreatitis and necrotizing pancreatitis. Other disorders of the pancreas include endocrine and exocrine syndromes, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Pancreatic divisum is congenital disorder where the pancreas is not joint but is present as two or three different parts.

Track 4: IPMN pancreas

Cystic Fibrosis of the pancreas is a condition that develops due to insufficient development of sodium bicarbonate in the body. This leads to thickening of pancreatic enzymes due to dehydration. This may block the pancreatic ducts not allowing the continuous production of pancreatic enzymes to pass into the small intestine. Eventually this leads to fibrosis of the pancreas.

Track 5: Pancreatic Enzymes and Hormones

The exocrine cells include acinar cells and the endocrine cells are present in clusters of cells called the islets of Langerhans. The Islets of Langerhans function in the production of hormones insulin and glucagon, somatostatin and pancreatic enzymes with the help of pancreatic alpha, beta, delta and gamma cells.  Pancreatic insufficiency is the inability to properly digest food due to a lack of digestive enzymes made by the pancreas. Diabetes leads to many differences in the glucose metabolism rates between those afflicted by the disease and those not. The other pancreatic enzymes trypsin, pancreatic lipase and amylase also effect the digestion and proper absorption of nutrients by the small intestine.

Track 7: Pancreatic Tumors and Cancers

Surgery is often part of the treatment for pancreatic cancer if it can be done. Depending on the type and stage of your cancer, surgery might be used to remove the cancer and part or your entire pancreas. Ablation or embolization is another way of destroying the tumors without surgery. Anti cancer drugs are either introduced by injecting into the veins or by oral administration. Chemotherapy and Radiation therapy are sometimes used simultaneously. Whipple procedures are surgical removal of cancerous pancreatic parts. This also includes pancreaticoduodenectomy and pylorous preserving whipple.

Track 8:Pancreatitis Prognosis

Pancreatic Cancer and the various diseases associated with this organ have been in the top priority of most researchers in the field of research. In the near past, the number of people dying of pancreatic cancer and its various diseases had increased to an extent that currently, it has become the fourth most common cause of Cancer Death in the United States. Researchers have been focussed on finding advanced treatment techniques for this cancer type. Including high alcoholism, there are number of causes that lead to malfunction or disrupt the normal metabolism of this organ.

Track 9:Pancreatic Diagnosis

Imaging tests used to diagnose pancreatic cancer include ultrasound, computerized tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The CT scan uses x-rays to produce detailed cross-sectional images of your body. CT scans are often used to diagnose pancreatic cancer because they can show the pancreas fairly clearly.MRI scans use radio waves and strong magnets instead of x-rays. The energy from the radio waves is absorbed by the body and then released in a pattern formed by the type of body tissue and by certain diseases.

Track 10: Pancreatic Surgery and Transplantation

Replacing of diseased pancreas with a healthy pancreas is pancreatic transplantation. Different transplant methods include Pancreas Alone Transplant, Liver-Pancreas Transplant, Pancreas after Kidney Transplant and Simultaneous Kidney Pancreas Transplant. Islet Cell Transplantation involves only the transplantation of Islet cells. Care is taken that the grafts are accepted with the help of immunosuppressant and new anesthesia techniques.

Track 11: Advanced Pancreatitis Treatment

Positron emission tomography (PET) Scan is done to image the area of cancer by injecting radioactive sugars. Magnetic Resonance Cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is used to look at the pancreas. This test is not used for biopsies. Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is used to check for pancreatic cancer and any blocks by injecting a dye through endoscopy. This test can also be used for biopsies. Endoscopic ultrasound is done with a small ultrasound probe attached to endocope. Biopsy is most commonly done by laparoscopy. Trans abdominal ultrasound examination is used to detect cancers and stones in the gall bladder. Case reports of such diagnosis and clinical trials will be discussed in this session.

Pancreas 2016 Scientific Committee will be honored to invite you to the International Conference on Pancreatic Disorders and Treatment (Pancreas 2016) to be held in the beautiful city Chicago, USA during October  17-19, 2016 . The conference proceedings will include seminars, symposiums and workshops on the latest treatment innovations of various pancreatic diseases, speeches delivered by eminent surgeons, gastroenterologists, endocrinologists and many enthusiastic young researchers.

Conference Series LLC organizes 300+ International Conferences Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific Societies and publishes 400+ Open Access Journals which contains over 30000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members.

Pancreas is the most important of digestive organs that produces insulin and other digestive enzymes and helps in maintaining the body’s metabolism. The malfunction of the pancreas can lead to various diseases such as jaundice, pancreatitis, diabetes etc. Advanced stages of some of these diseases may lead to pancreatic cancer. Other diseases that affect the pancreas include the hereditary cystic fibrosis where the pancreatic juices are blocked by thick mucus and thereby leading to sever damage of the pancreas.

Scientists have been working on exploring every aspect of diagnosing pancreatic disorders, both basic as well as advanced as early as possible. Being placed deep into the abdomen, detection and treatment of pancreatic disorders have posed a challenge to the providers all over the world. This may be one of the reasons, the number of people being diagnosed and the ones dying due to pancreatic cancer has not improved to a great extant. Though the numbers have been stable for some years now, it needs to be improved at the earliest. The latest innovation in this field of medical research is artificial pancreas whose clinical research shows promising results. All of these and more are going to be discussed along with our esteemed panel of organizing committee with the keynote speakers and various other professionals on the theme Research oriented innovations in pancreatic disorder treatment and diagnostic techniques.

Pancreatic diseases and pancreatic cancer is estimated to be associated to more than 5% of the world population The incidence and the death statistics are at 13.8 and 12.8 per every 100,000 persons as per the statistical analysis of 2012.The latest reports suggest that the death toll has decreased and is at an average of 10.52. The market analysis for pancreatic disorders and related diseases is estimated to increase to USD 1.2 billion by 2015 as suggested by global pancreatic cancer drug market.

Though rates of pancreatic cancer deaths have reduced in the past 15-20 years, the number of people estimated to be diagnosed of only pancreatic cancer is 46,420. .This disease is estimated to take the lives of as many as 39,950 people. These rates suggest that this disease now the 4th leading cause of death in the United States may become the first very soon if research in this field is not encouraged enough.

Scope

It is estimated that by 2020, in USA and 2030 in Europe, pancreatic cancer and related diseases are going to become the second most leading cause of cancer death. This rate is calculated as a total of 10% of the cancer death rates. There are number of pharmaceutical companies trying to make drugs for the treatment of pancreatic diseases. The estimated growth of pancreatic market by the end of this decade is

The global market value of this organ’s syndromes have increased from 850 Million back in the beginning of this decade to current market value is around 1.2 Billion USD
