International Conference and Exhibition on Gastrointestinal Therapeutics
Date: August 25, 2015
Time: 9:00 AM
Location: Melia valencia de congresso
City: Valencia, Spain
State: NV
Details: International Conference and Exhibition on Gastrointestinal Therapeutics August 25-27, 2015, Valencia, Spain, Europe Advanced therapeutic options and treatment procedures for gastrointestinal disorders OMICS International is pleased to announce its annual conferences in 2015 and 2016. One of the premier annual conference is Gastrointestinal Therapeutics Meeting. Open Minded International Conferences (OMICS) are determined to put forth a platform for eminent personalities to share their expertise and research at Gastrointestinal Therapeutics, Spain, Europe. The conference throws light on thought provoking topics and recent research in the field of Breast cancer like, gastrointestinal Carcinogenesis and Therapeutics, Inflammatory Bowel Disease Treatment and Management, Gastrointestinal Bleeding- Treatment and Management, Pancreatic diseases and Treatment, Emerging therapies for Viral Hepatitis and Liver Fibrosis, Treatment for Functional GI disorders, Gastrointestinal Pharmacotherapy, Gastrointestinal therapeutic endoscopy- Advancements and Challenges, Gastric bypass surgery, Recent Advancements and Current research in Gastrointestinal Therapeutics. The organizing committee is gearing up for an exciting and informative conference program including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops on a variety of topics, poster presentations and various programs for participants from all over the world covering all the aspects of gastroenterology. Gastro-2015 aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of gastro diseases. It also provides the chance for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the fields of Gastrointestinal therapeutics. It helps in promoting the advancement of gastroenterology. It provides a platform for organizations, companies, associations, societies, institutions, statutory bodies and other authorities and individuals interested in the causes, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. Gastroenterology is a specialty that tends to receive relatively little attention from a policy perspective and compared with other specialties, attracts relatively little charitable research funding. There have been increases in the incidence of most gastrointestinal disorders in Europe which have major implications for future healthcare provision. Gastrointestinal cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in Europe. It is also the most common cancer in men and the second most common in women after breast cancer. This gastric bypass surgery event is a general need for further research into the incidence, prognosis and public health burden of many gastrointestinal disorders across Europe and a particular need for more studies from Eastern Europe, along with pan-European and multinational studies.

The gastrointestinal (GI) therapeutics market for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis (UC), and Crohn’s disease (CD) in the eight major markets (8MM) — the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Canada and Japan — is expected to decrease in value from $6.8 billion in 2012 to $6.6 billion by 2019, at a negative Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 0.3%, forecasts business intelligence provider GBI Research. The upcoming patent expiry of various major drugs in gastric surgery and other gastrointestinal diseases will register unfavorable growth in European markets. The patent expiries will harm the overall market value and the entry of generics and biosimilars will also have a strong impact on sales. The major factors currently stabilizing the market include the increasing prevalence of GI diseases, growing awareness of the importance of detecting these diseases early and the availability of effective diagnostics creates an urgent need for organizing this gastrointestinal surgery conference.
