Sessions and Tracks

Track 1: Antiepileptic Drug Treatment During Pregnancy and Delivery in Women With Epilepsy:

Epilepsy affects approximately (0.5–1)% of women in childbearing age and is the most common serious neurological condition in pregnancy. Birth rates in WWE are known to be significantly lower than in the general population. Low birth rates in WWE have been attributed to hormonal changes, psychosocial problems and the use of AED. The management of WWE during pregnancy is challenging regarding higher SUDEP and mortality rates, risk of seizure , perinatal complications and deliver as well as teratogenicity of AEDs.The primary goal was to describe, retrospectively, changes in AED treatment policy over a period of eleven years at our tertiary referral center. . The total numbers of deliveries of WWE increased at significantly, which might be due to an increasing population but can also be attributed to manage WWE at the hospital in a dedicated epilepsy outpatient clinic for WWE. Large prospective studies and registries (e.g. EURAP) compared several AEDs and their teratogenic risks.

Most commonly used AEDs during pregnancy are:

  • Lamotrigine
  • Carbamazepine
  • Valproic Acid
  • Phenobarbital
  • Gabapentin

Track 2: Molecular Genetics in Epilepsy:

The purpose of this section is to provide a clinically relevant conceptual expertise of the underlying molecular foundation of seizure prevalence alternatively enlisting each gene that has thus far been linked to epilepsy. each protein in our frame is synthesized from their genes via the procedure of transcription (formation of messenger RNA, mRNA) and translation (synthesis of protein from mRNA). factors which do no longer necessarily exchange the shape of the gene however do have an effect on the method of transcription and translation are known as epigenetic elements.Any perturbation inside the transcription, translation, or epigenetic mechanisms can produce defective proteins main to diseases. Seizures occur as a result of a complicated interaction of altered gene expressions, expanded neuronal excitability and disturbed intrinsic neuronal properties. Defects in epilepsy genes provide a vital perception into the pathomechanisms of seizure era and propagation, which has an effect at the management of the patients  as illustrated underneath.

  • Genotype–phenotype correlation
  • Role of Pharmacogenetics
  • Genetic Testing and Implications
  • Genetic sequencing
  • Symtomatic epilepsy

Track 3: New Opportunities in Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery:

Pediatric epilepsy surgical operation is performed to treat epilepsy (seizure disorder) in youngsters whose circumstance can not be controlled by way of medicine.

Maximum kids with epilepsy have their seizures managed properly with medicine and expand commonly with few limitations. but, a few kids revel in intractable epilepsy in spite of competitive remedy with antiepileptic therapy. In these children, surgical elimination of the “epileptic quarter” of brain tissue can be considered. In conditions where this isn't possible, different varieties of surgical treatment can also assist reduce the frequency or quantity of the seizures.Despite the fact that within the past, surgical remedy for epilepsy changed into taken into consideration simplest after a protracted period of seizures and a couple of medicine trials, folks who will develop intractable epilepsy can now be recognized earlier. A surgical evaluation will frequently be taken into consideration when a toddler has no longer replied to 2 or three antiepileptic medicines. there's accumulating evidence that surgically curing epilepsy at an in advance age may offer a higher first-class of existence.There are many varieties of epilepsy. they range via cause, symptoms, severity, brain areas affected and greater. with regards to surgical remedy, the most useful manner to classify seizures is with the aid of whether they're focal (also known as partial) or generalized. Focal seizures contain only one place of the mind. Generalized seizures involve the complete mind. A seizure that starts offevolved as a focal seizure may additionally on occasion development to end up a generalized seizure. a few surgeries intention to remedy focal seizures, and some purpose to lessen the wide variety or severity of generalized seizures.Just as there are many types of epilepsy, there are numerous forms of epilepsy surgery. surgical procedures can commonly be placed into one of 3 extensive classes: resection, disconnection or stimulation. 

  • Corpus callosotomy
  • Multiple subpial transection.
  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery
  • Lesionectomy
  • Focal Resection 

Track 4: Alternative treatment For Epilepsy:

Epilepsy is sometimes called a protracted-time period situation, as people regularly live with it for decades, or for existence. although typically epilepsy can not be ‘cured’, for most people, seizures may be 'controlled' (stopped) so that epilepsy has little or no impact on their lives. So remedy is often about handling seizures within the long-time period.

the majority with epilepsy take anti-epileptic capsules (AEDs) to forestall their seizures from going on. but, there are other remedy options for people whose seizures aren't controlled by using anti-epileptic capsules (AEDs).

  • Ketogenic diet
  • Vagus nerve stimulation
  • Cannabis oil for epilepsy
  • Epilepsy surgery
  • Deep brain stimulation

Track 5: Advances In Electroencephalogram(EEG):

An Electroencephalogram (EEG) information the electrical activity of the brain by way of selecting up the electrical signals from the brain cells. those indicators are picked up by electrodes attached to the top and are recorded on paper or on a computer. The recording shows how the mind is operating. An EEG offers information approximately the electric activity of the mind all through the time the check is going on.

when a person has an epileptic seizure their mind activity adjustments. this modification, called epileptiform brain activity, can every so often be visible on an EEG recording. some human beings could have epileptiform brain activity even if they do no longer seem like having a seizure, so an EEG can be particularly useful for them.An EEG isn't always uncomfortable, and patients do no longer sense any shocks on the scalp or somewhere else. nonetheless, having electrodes pasted to the scalp can be a bit disturbing for youngsters, as can lying still at some point of the test.

If the kid is having an EEG, instruction is minimum.infant's hair must be easy and freed from oils, sprays, and conditioner to help the electrodes keep on with the scalp.physician may additionally suggest that the child stop taking positive medicines before the take a look at. it's often endorsed that youngsters now not have caffeine up to eight hours before the test. If it's vital for the kid to sleep at some point of the EEG, the medical doctor will endorse methods to assist make this simpler.

  • Brain Areas
  • Convolutional Neural Network
  • Non-invasing Imaging

Track 6: Genetic Study of Epilepsy points to potential new therapies:

Researchers in comparison the DNA of greater than 15,000 human beings with epilepsy to the DNA of 30,000 human beings with out epilepsy. This has created a better knowledge of genetic factors that contribute to the most common kinds of this circumstance, and the results tripled the number of recognized genetic associations for epilepsy and implicated 11 new genes.The researchers discovered that the general public of modern-day anti-epileptic pills directly goal one or extra of the associated genes and recognized a further 166 tablets that do the same. those pills are promising new applicants for epilepsy therapy as they without delay target the genetic basis of the disease. This work illustrates the strength of scientists taking part throughout international locations and continents. discovering these new genes for epilepsy gives vital statistics toward novel treatments for the situation. this is another vital step on the road closer to curing the epilepsies.

in addition to the biological insights provided by using the findings, this look at will encourage researchers to expand customized and precision treatment options for patients with difficult and complicated epilepsy. this could offer better seizure manage and will allow stepped forward pleasant of lifestyles for patients and households. Over a hundred and fifty researchers, primarily based across Europe, Australia, Asia, South america and North the us, finished the research. They worked together as part of the international League in opposition to Epilepsy (ILAE) Consortium on complicated Epilepsies. The ILAE Consortium become shaped with the aid of researchers in 2010, recognising that the complexity of genetic and environmental elements underlying epilepsy could require studies throughout large datasets, and therefore extraordinary collaboration on an global scale.

  • Relaxation Therapies
  • Music Therapy
  • Art Therapy

Track 7: Neuropsychiatric Disorder:

Neuropsychiatric problems also are called intellectual problems results in diseases originate from the nervous device. It consists of Addictions, youth, and development, ingesting issues, Degenerative disorders, temper disorders, Neurotic disorders, psychosis, and Sleep problems. In Alzheimer’s disorder, the memory gets disturbed and while attention deficit is on the whole affected in sufferers with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Neuropsychiatric issues are not unusual in patients with cease-stage renal ailment (ESRD). They include “hardware” disorders which are generally neurological of their presentation and “software” issues that could extra regularly be within the medical province of the psychiatrist.

  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Dopamine
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Depression

Track 8: Seizure Types:

A seizure, technically called an epileptic seizure, is a duration of signs due to abnormally excessive or synchronous neuronal pastime inside the mind. Outward effects vary from uncontrolled shaking actions involving tons of the body with lack of focus(tonic-clonic seizure), to shaking actions concerning handiest a part of the frame with variable stages of attention (focal seizure), to a diffused temporary lack of attention (absence seizure). maximum of the time those episodes final much less than 2 minutes and it takes some time to go back to normal. lack of bladder control might also arise.

Seizures can be provoked and unprovoked. Unprovoked seizures occur with out a regarded or fixable cause such that ongoing seizures are in all likelihood. Unprovoked seizures may be prompted through pressure or sleep deprivation.sicknesses of the brain, where there has been as a minimum one seizure and a long term chance of further seizures, are collectively called epilepsy. A seizure that lasts for greater than a quick period of time is a scientific emergency. Any seizure lasting longer than 5 minutes have to be dealt with as repute epilepticus.A first seizure usually does not require long term remedy with anti-seizure medications except a selected problem is discovered on electroencephalogram (EEG) or mind imaging. generally it is safe to complete the paintings-up following a unmarried seizure as an outpatient.in many, with what appears to be a primary seizure, other minor seizures have formerly passed off.Up to ten% of human beings have at the least one epileptic seizure. Provoked seizures arise in approximately 3.five per 10,000 human beings a 12 months whilst unprovoked seizures occur in about 4.2 in keeping with 10,000 people a yr.  After one seizure, the danger of experiencing a 2nd is set 50%.Epilepsy influences about 1% of the populace at any given time with about four% of the populace affected at some point in time.[  nearly 80% of those with epilepsy live in developing international locations. Many places require human beings to prevent using till they have now not had a seizure for a selected period of time.

  • Focal Seizures
  • Generalized seizures
  • Absence seizures
  • Myoclonic seizures
  • Atonic seizures

Track 9: Ketogenic Diet(KD):

The ketogenic food regimen (KD) is a high fat, low starch, controlled protein diet that has been applied for the reason that 1920s for the treatment of epilepsy. The consuming habitual is a healing remedy and is commonly simply idea about when no less than two suitable meds have been tried and not labored. The ketogenic eating regimen is a built up treatment desire for kids with hard to control epilepsy. a few grown-u.s.a.can also earnings via nutritional medications, but extra data is needed about the impact and consequences for grown-ups, and grown-up drug treatments are proper now just handy in multiple united kingdom facilities. nutritional drug treatments for epilepsy have to simply be pursued with the help of an carried out epilepsy professional and dietician. The call ketogenic means that it produces ketones inside the frame. (keto = ketone; genic = generating) Ketones are fashioned whilst the frame uses fat for its source of power. Typically the frame uses carbohydrates (along with sugar, bread, pasta) for its gas. because the ketogenic eating regimen is very low in carbohydrates, fats come to be the number one gasoline as an alternative. The body can work thoroughly on ketones (and fat). Ketones aren't risky. They may be detected inside the urine, blood, and breath. Ketones are one of the more likely mechanisms of action of the food plan, with higher ketone degrees frequently main to progressed seizure control. but, there are many other theories for why the eating regimen will paintings.

  • Medium-chain triglycerides
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Hypersynchronous
  • Fueling brain function
  • Neurotrauma

Track 10Idiopathic Localization-Related Epilepsies (ILRE):

Idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) is a set of epileptic issues which can be believed to have a strong underlying genetic foundation. patients with an IGE subtype are normally in any other case everyday and have no structural mind abnormalities. human beings also often have a own family records of epilepsy and appear to have a genetically predisposed risk of seizures. IGE tends to take place itself between early early life and formative years despite the fact that it is able to be finally diagnosed later. The genetic cause of a few IGE types is thought, even though inheritance does now not always comply with a simple monogenic mechanism.The motive of those localized (focal) seizures is not yet regarded, but some studies factors to a genetic element. The character’s mind and brain characteristic may additionally seem ordinary treatment for these epilepsies begins with anticonvulsant medications. Epilepsy surgical treatment together with laser ablation or temporal lobectomy can be an alternative, especially whilst the reason of the seizures is an abnormality inside the mind along with mesial temporal sclerosis.

  • Benign myoclonic epilepsy in infancy
  • Generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus
  • Epilepsy with myoclonic absences
  • Epilepsy with myoclonic-astatic seizures
  • Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy

Track 11: Epilepsy and Brain Mapping:

New technologies can accurately identify the seizure attention. Enhancement of modern-day technologies are being applied in new approaches to enhance surgeons' capabilities to discover and disrupt the supply of the seizure, and tailor their method to each individual. mind mapping is a hard and fast of neuroscience techniques predicated at the mapping of (organic) quantities or residences onto spatial representations of the (human or non-human) mind resulting in maps.

All neuroimaging may be taken into consideration part of brain mapping. One such map, known as a connectogram depicts cortical regions round a circle, organized by lobes. Concentric circles inside the ring constitute diverse commonplace neurological measurements, inclusive of cortical thickness or curvature. inside the middle of the circles, traces representing white count fibers illustrate the connections between cortical regions, weighted by way of fractional anisotropy and power of connection.

  • Cortical stimulation mapping   
  • Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)
  • Medical image computing
  • Positron emission tomography (PET)
  • Diffusion MRI (dMRI)

 

 

 

 

Track 12: Vagus Nerve Stimulation:

Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is a clinical treatment that entails handing over electrical impulses to the vagus nerve. it's miles used as an add-on treatment for sure styles of intractable epilepsy and treatment-resistant despair. frequent aspect outcomes encompass coughing and shortness of breath. extreme side consequences may also include problem speaking and cardiac arrest. VNS devices are used to treat drug-resistant epilepsy and remedy-resistant predominant depressive sickness (TR-MDD).in particular, it's miles used for treatment-resistant focal epilepsy.As of 2017 the efficacy of VNS for TR-MDD became doubtful. Vagus nerve stimulation includes the usage of a tool to stimulate the vagus nerve with electric impulses. An implantable vagus nerve stimulator is presently FDA-authorized to deal with epilepsy and melancholy. there may be one vagus nerve on each side of your body, running out of your brainstem thru your neck for your chest and abdomen.

In traditional vagus nerve stimulation, a device is surgically implanted under the skin in your chest, and a cord is threaded under your pores and skin connecting the tool to the left vagus nerve. whilst activated, the tool sends electric signals along the left vagus nerve in your brainstem, which then sends alerts to sure regions for your brain. The proper vagus nerve isn't used as it's more likely to carry fibers that deliver nerves to the coronary heart.New, noninvasive vagus nerve stimulation gadgets, which do not require surgical implantation, had been approved in Europe to treat epilepsy, melancholy and pain. A noninvasive device that stimulates the vagus nerve changed into currently accredited by means of the food and Drug management for the treatment of cluster headaches in the united states of america.

  • Hoarseness
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Tingling or prickling of the skin
  • Insomnia
  • Worsening of sleep apnea

Track 13: Pacemaker Of Epilepsy:

Simply as a pacemaker controls heart rhythms, a brand new implantable tool for the mind detects ordinary interest and corrects it – earlier than someone with epilepsy stories a seizure. This modern device is known as a neurostimulator, and it's far a proven remedy option for adults who've disabling seizures that are not controlled via medicine. Once the physician programs the device to come across and reply to a patient’s mind hobby, the device automatically delivers focused treatment when the affected person wishes it. It extensively reduces seizures, with endured development over the years. sufferers report higher cognitive function, quality of lifestyles, and mood. It additionally gets rid of the difficult side effects some patients experience on anti-seizure medicines.Pacemakers should assist guard epilepsy sufferers from unexpected unexplained demise, say British researchers.Approximately 1 in 1,000 people with epilepsy die unexpectedly every year, leaving no clues approximately what killed them.To see if heart rhythm troubles might be at work, researchers recruited 10 men and 10 girls with epilepsy. Their instances had been critical sufficient that every one individuals had previously been considered for surgical treatment in their epilepsy. None had heart disorder.Contributors heartbeats have been monitored via implantable recorders for up to 2 years. The devices were programmed to document extraordinarily slow coronary heart beats (forty beats in step with minute or much less) or very rapid coronary heart beats (at least 140 beats consistent with minute). The devices can also be activated externally to document the coronary heart's behavior all through seizures.

Track 14: Sleep Medicine:

Sleep medicine is a medical specialty or subspecialty devoted to the diagnosis and therapy of sleep disturbances and disorders. From the middle of the 20th century, research has provided increasing knowledge and answered many questions about sleep-wake functioning. The rapidly evolving field has become a recognized medical subspecialty in some countries. Dental sleep medicine also qualifies for board certification in some countries. Properly organized, minimum 12-month, postgraduate training programs are still being defined in the United States. In some countries, the sleep researchers and the physicians who treat patients may be the same people.

Sleep medicine physicians are nationally regarded for their expertise in the diagnosis, treatment and care of sleep disorders. Sleep problems that manifest as chronic ailments are approached from a chronic disease management standpoint, integrating the social, behavioural, environmental and clinical aspects of chronic disease control. A neurologist treats brain and nervous system disorders that may contribute to sleep problems. An otolaryngologist treats ear, nose, and throat conditions. This doctor may evaluate snoring and other breathing problems associated with sleep disorders.Some of famous sleeping pills are Ambien, Ambien CR (zolpidem tartrate), Dalmane (flurazepam hydrochloride), Halcion (triazolam), Lunesta (eszopiclone) etc.

  • Parasomnias
  • Narcolepsy
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Restless Legs Syndrome
  • Circadian Rhythm Sleep

Track 15: Semiology and pathophysiology of Epilepsy:

Pileptic seizures are labeled with the aid of a diffusion of symptoms. Their standard semiology served for a long time as the fundamental tool to classify epilepsy syndromes. The signs and symptoms of epileptic seizures encompass the subsequent spheres: sensorial sphere, attention, motor and autonomic spheres. most seizures involve multiple sphere, however, a few like for instance aura (sensorial sphere) or dialeptic seizures (attention) involve handiest one sphere. The major medical features of a seizure decide the seizure classification. the following review gives an advent into the semiological seizure classification. This method allows us to better become aware of the epileptogenic quarter of our sufferers and to select the simplest scientific or surgical treatment.Pathophysiology is a union of pathology and body structure that explains the sensible variations in a diseased kingdom.

Epilepsy pathophysiology is referred  among the inhibitory (γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA)) as the branch in the stability and the excitatory (glutamate) neurotransmission.This shift happens due to both selective loss of inhibitory GABA-ergic neurons after precipitating epileptogenic insults (e.g., status epilepticus, stroke, and traumatic brain injury) and the reorganization of neuronal circuits that prefer hypersynchrony of neuronal populations (e.g., aberrant connections formed through the axons of dentate granule cells of the dentate gyrus, known as mossy fiber sprouting). Deficit in GABA-mediated signaling and augmentation of glutamatergic transmission which have been documented in lots of (despite the fact that no longer all) forms of epilepsy represent the basis for the pharmacotherapy of the ailment.

  • Glutamate–GABA hypothesis
  • Malformation
  • Voltage-gated sodium channels
  • Neuropeptides
  • Neuromodulator

Track 16: Occupational Therapy:

Health and the ethical treatment era had been diagnosed as the basis of occupational remedy. OT is using evaluation and intervention to boom, get higher, or preserve sizable sports, or occupations, of people, corporations, or agencies. it's miles an allied fitness profession executed by means of the usage of occupational therapists and Occupational remedy Assistants. OTs regularly works with humans with mental health problems, disabilities, accidents, or impairments. Occupational therapists address the need for rehabilitation  following an damage or impairment. while making plans treatment, occupational therapists cope with the physical, cognitive, psychosocial, and environmental needs concerned in grownup populations at some point of a diffusion of settings. OTs makes a speciality of prevention and remedy of intellectual infection in all populations. intellectual health illnesses which could require occupational treatment consist of schizophrenia  and specific psychotic problems, depressive issues, tension issues, eating issues, trauma- and stressor-related troubles (e.g. positioned up-worrying stress sickness or acute pressure ailment), obsessive-compulsive and related problems collectively with hoarding, and neurodevelopmental troubles consisting of autism spectrum sickness, interest-deficit/hyperactivity disease and getting to know problems. OT is the therapy opted for all forms of mental issues. They can also provide strategies to folks with epilepsy who additionally have extra problems that have an effect on their ability to perform exceptional-motor tasks, which incorporates writing, buttoning garments, or choosing up small gadgets.

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Hyperactivity disorder
  • Post traumatic stress disorder
  • Metacognitive therapy

Market Analysis

The epilepsy therapeutics market value in the eight major countries — the US, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK and Japan — will increase from $5.5 billion in 2020 to $6.5 billion by 2022, at a modest Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 3.9%, says a new report from business intelligence provider GBI Research.

According to the report*, the US will grow at a higher CAGR of 4.8%, climbing from $1.9 billion in 2020 to $2.6 billion by 2022. Meanwhile, the five European countries and Canada will achieve a combined, smaller CAGR of 3.1% during the forecast period.

GBI Research attributes the anticipated market expansion to new Anti-Epileptic Drugs (AEDs) that have been approved during the last five years. However, further growth will be limited by the recent patent expiration of key AEDs, such as Keppra (levetiracetam) and Lamictal (lamotrigine).

Greater than 220 million human beings are affected from neurology sickness which is unexpectedly fast growing disease in the Europe and USA. The information from the ecu brain Council indicates that a complete of 220.7 million human beings in Europe suffer from at the least one neurological disease this is higher as compared to the populations of Germany, France and great Britain combined. Headaches (152.eight million affected) which maximum common neurological disorders, accompanied by using sleep issues (forty four.9 million), strokes (8.2 million) and dementia (6.3 million). Many neurological sicknesses along with strokes, Parkinson’s or dementia have an age issue in that the occurrence of them increases with age. According to Euro static, the variety of people within the Europe over the age sixty five will double by the year 2060 to fifty two in line with cent. Neurological sicknesses will price EUR 336 billion in step with year. Neurological illnesses are one of the maximum highly-priced illnesses, which is extra than the whole budget of the German federal authorities. The 3 most highly-priced diseases are dementia (EUR a hundred and five billion), strokes (EUR 64 billion) and headaches (EUR 43 billion). An immediate non-medical charges account approximately EUR 122 billion while indirect prices as much as EUR 93 billion arising from sick leaves and early retirements.
