7th International Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Conference

Date: October 22-23, 2018

Venue: Rome, Italy

COPD Conference 2018 has been composed with many fascinating and enlightening scientific sessions. It includes all the features of  Pulmonology.

Track 1: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

COPD is a group of progressive lung diseases. The common are emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Many people with COPD have both of these conditions. Emphysema slowly destroys air sacs in lungs, which affects with external air flow. Bronchitis causes inflammation and narrowing of the bronchial tubes, which permits mucus to form. It also includes asthma and certain forms of bronchiectasis. COPD makes it harder to breathe. Indications may be mild at initial stage with cough and shortness of breath. As it progresses, it can become increasingly difficult to breathe. COPD Conferences focus on the modern approaches of Pulmonology.

Track 2: COPD Pathogenesis

Inflammation is present in the lungs, especially the small airway routes, of all people who smoke. COPD Pathogenesis is typical defensive reaction to the inhaled toxins is enhanced in COPD, leading to tissue destruction, debilitation of the defence mechanisms and interruption of the repair mechanisms. In general, the inflammatory and structural changes in the airway routes increased with disease seriousness and hold on even after smoking cessation. Other than inflammation, two different procedures are associated with the pathogenesis of COPD—an irregularity amongst proteases and antiproteases and an imbalance amongst oxidants and antioxidants agents in the lungs. Pulmonary Conferences expresses various developing treatments for COPD.

Track 3: Asthma and COPD

Bronchial Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease are obstructive pneumonic sicknesses that influenced a large number of people everywhere throughout the world. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a group of pulmonary diseases that block air stream in the lungs. Asthma is a chronic disease noticeable by spasms of bronchi, due to inflamed and narrowed airways in the lungs. Asthma causes difficulty in breathing that often results from an allergic reaction. There is large evidence that treatment with anti-inflammatory drugs reduces morbidity and mortality in asthma. Inhaled corticosteroids appear to have a place in the management of severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, perhaps by decreasing the frequency of exacerbations. Lung Conferences envelop the fields of asthma and COPD which have important similarities and differences. Asthma and COPD are chronic inflammatory diseases that include the little airway routes and cause airflow impediment, both result from gene environment communications and both are typically characterized by mucus and bronchoconstriction.

Track 4: Epidemiology of COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a preventable and treatable disease in responsible for human and economic burden around the world. Cigarette smoking is the fundamental hazard factor for COPD in the developed world, although other essential respiratory disorder incorporate word related exposures, air contamination, airway route hyper responsiveness, asthma, and hereditary predisposition. In the vast majority of the world, Epidemiology of COPD prevalence and mortality keep on rising in light of increases in smoking addiction, especially by women and adolescents. COPD is likewise an imperative reason for disability, and is connected to comorbid diseases, for example, depression and cardiovascular disease, which adds to the large economic burden related with this issue. Better public health and medical intercessions that target both the risk factors for COPD and look toward prior mediation may decrease growing public health impact of COPD. COPD Conferences will focus on the understanding of all the pulmonary treatments.

Track 5: COPD Therapeutics

The objective of COPD therapeutics is to enhance a patient's functional status and quality by protecting optimal lung function, enhancing indications, and keeping the recurrence of COPD exacerbations. At present, no medicines aside from lung transplantation have been appeared to significantly enhance lung function or decrease mortality; however, oxygen therapy and smoking cessation may decrease mortality. Once the diagnosis of COPD is established, it is essential to educate the patient about the sickness and to empower their active interest in treatment. Bronchodilators are the foundation of any COPD treatment regimen. They work by enlarging aviation routes, accordingly diminishing airsac protection. Pulmonary Conferences provides a multidisciplinary to pulmonology researchers.

Track 6: COPD Exacerbations

Constant Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) experiences long-term and dynamic damage to their lungs. This impacts air flow to the lungs. Doctors in some cases call this condition chronic bronchitis or chronic emphysema. Those with COPD can experience periods when their signs are much worse than normal. This is known as an acute exacerbation. Shortness of breath and chest tightness is present in many cases. A patient encountering a COPD exacerbation may need to search for medicinal help at a hospital. COPD exacerbations can be harmful because they can make damage to the lungs. COPD, keeping a compounding from happening can enable you to live a healthier life and diminish risk of death. Self-management and prevention for COPD will be beneficial for future exacerbation. Lung Conferences will explore the application of pulmonology.

Track 7: Types of COPD

People with different types of COPD experience difficulty in breathing and shortness of breath. The two principle infections that fall under the extent of COPD are: Chronic bronchitis, which involves a long-term cough with mucus, it is a long-term inflammation of the bronchi, which results in increased production of mucus, as well as other changes. These changes may result in breathing problems, frequent infections, cough, disability, anxiety and depression. Emphysema, which involves damage to the lungs over time. Emphysema is a chronic lung condition in which alveoli may be: destroyed, narrowed, collapsed, stretched, and over-inflated. This can cause a reduction in respiratory capacity and breathlessness. Harm to the air sacs is irreversible and brings about permanent "holes" in the lung tissue. COPD Conferences will focus on the different techniques used in pulmonology.

Track 8: COPD: Sign and Symptoms

For Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease there are no sign and symptoms or sometimes it may show mild symptoms. As the disease gets inferior, symptoms usually progress more severe. The first symptom of COPD is usually a long-term or chronic cough. If you have COPD, you also may often have colds or other respiratory infections such as the flu, or influenza. Pulmonary Conferences discuss about the COPD symptoms, often don't appear until significant lung damage or lung cancer has occurred, and they usually worsen over time, particularly if smoking exposure continues. Symptoms include increasing breathlessness – this may just occur when exercising at first and you may sometimes wake up at night feeling breathless, a persistent chesty cough with phlegm that never seems to go away, frequent chest infections, persistent wheezing.

Track 9: Genetic risk factor of COPD

Even if an individual has never smoked or been unprotected to pollutants for an extended period of time, they can still develop COPD. Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD) is the most commonly known genetic risk factor of COPD in emphysema. Alpha-1 Antitrypsin related COPD is caused by a deficiency of the Alpha-1  in the bloodstream. Without the Alpha-1 Antitrypsin protein, white blood cells begin to harm the lungs and lung deterioration occurs. The World Health Organization and the American Thoracic Society suggests that each individual determined to have COPD be tested for Alpha-1. Pulmonary Conferences also discusses about different types of genes which may be a cause of pulmonary diseases.

Track 10: Lung cancer

Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are at increased risk for both the development of primary lung cancer, as well as poor outcome after lung cancer diagnosis and treatment. Because of existing impairments in lung function, patients with COPD often do not meet traditional criteria for tolerance of definitive surgical lung cancer therapy. Emerging information with respect to the pathophysiology of COPD in lung resection demonstrates that postoperative decrements in lung capacity may be less than anticipated by traditional prediction tools. In patients with COPD, more inclusive consideration for surgical resection with curative intent might be appropriate as constrained surgical resections or nonsurgical therapeutic options provide inferior survival. Besides, optimizing perioperative COPD therapeutic care as indicated by clinical practice rules including smoking cessation can possibly minimize morbidity and enhance functional status in this often severely impaired patient population. Lung Conferences concentrates on the risk factor for development of lung cancer.

Track 11: COPD and Cardiovascular Diseases

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is related with increased risk of cardiovascular disease, for example, heart failure or a heart attack. The lungs and the heart work firmly together to supply the oxygen; oxygen in the air that comes into the lungs is moved into the circulation system, which the heart at that point pushes out to rest of the body. But diseases in both the heart and the lungs often go together. If person have COPD then there is a higher risk of having cardiovascular diseases. Comorbidities and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are pervasive, with cardiovascular disease being the most well-known and significant. Risk factors for COPD and Cardiovascular Diseases, such as smoking, low socioeconomic class, and a sedentary lifestyle contribute to the natural history of each of these conditions. COPD Conferences will focus on the scope of COPD related to cardiovascular diseases.

Track 12: Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension is a type of high blood pressure that impacts the arteries in lungs and the right side of heart. In one type of pulmonary hypertension, modest arteries in lungs, called pulmonary arterioles, and capillaries become narrowed, blocked or destroyed. This makes it harder for blood to flow through lungs, and raises pressure inside the arteries of lungs. As the pressure builds, heart's lower right chamber (right ventricle) must work harder to direct blood through lungs, in the end causing heart muscle to debilitates and fail. Few categories of pulmonary hypertension are serious conditions that become progressively worse and sometimes become fatal. Pulmonary hypertension can lead to a number of COPD complications such as blood clots in the lungs, sickle cell disease and sleep apnea. Although a few kinds of pulmonary hypertension are not curable, treatment can help decrease symptoms and enhance quality of life. Pulmonary Conferences concentrates on the impact of pulmonary hypertension.

Track 13: Pathophysiology of COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a life-threatening condition. It affects lungs and ability to breathe. The pathophysiology of COPD is the physical changes associated with it, start with damage to airways and the air sacs in lungs. It progresses from a cough with mucus to difficulty breathing. To understand pathophysiology of COPD, it is essential to understand the structure of the lungs. When you inhale, air moves down in trachea through two tubes called bronchi. The bronchi branch out into smaller tubes called bronchioles. At the ends of the bronchioles are little air sacs called alveoli. And at the end of alveoli are capillaries, which are tiny blood vessels. Lung Conferences envision the pulmonology.

Track 14: Co-Morbidities of COPD

Additional pulmonary comorbidities impact the anticipation of patients with COPD. Tobacco smoking is a typical hazard factor for much comorbidity, including coronary illness, heart failure and lung cancer. Comorbidities, for example, pulmonary artery disease and malnutrition are specifically caused by COPD, while others, such as fundamental venous thromboembolism, anxiety, depression, osteoporosis, obesity, metabolic disorder, diabetes, sleep disturbance and anaemia, have no clear physiopathological association with COPD. Co-Morbidities of COPD shared conviction between the majorities of these extra pulmonary signs is chronic systemic inflammation. These diseases potentiate the morbidity of COPD, prompting expanded hospitalisations and healthcare costs. They can frequently cause death, independently of respiratory failure. Comorbidities make the management of COPD difficult and should be evaluated and treated adequately. COPD Conferences enlighten the recent advances in COPD and pulmonology research.

Track 15: COPD Complications

Individuals with COPD can be in risk for serious complications that can not only put their health in jeopardy, but can also be fatal. Cor Pulmonale of COPD bring down extremity edema (swelling) in a patient with COPD Complications is typically an indication of cor pulmonale (pulmonary hypertension and right-sided heart failure). Acute COPD Exacerbations are portrayed by an unexpected increment of manifestations. Cough and sputum production increases. At the point when respiratory failure happens in a patient who slowly, there is a moderate decrease in lung capacity and rising levels of carbon dioxide in the blood. The expanding carbon dioxide makes an opiate impact in the patient, who gradually loses awareness and quits relaxing. Different difficulties of COPD incorporate pneumonia, polycythemia, and pneumothorax. Pneumonia caused by bacterial disease can prompt respiratory failure in these patients. Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most well-known reason for bacterial pneumonia in patients with COPD. Pneumothorax happens when a hole develops in the lung, enabling air to escape into the space between the lung and the chest wall and collapsing the lung. Polycythemia in COPD is the body's endeavour to adjust to decreased amount of blood oxygen by expanding the generation of oxygen-conveying red blood cells. While this might be useful temporarily, overproduction eventually clogs small blood vessels. COPD Conferences provides global forum for discussion about new innovation of pulmonology research.

Track 16: Pulmonary diseases-treatment and therapies

There's currently no cure for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), yet pulmonary diseases treatment and therapies can help moderate the movement of the condition and control the side effects. Medicines include: quit smoking, inhalers and pharmaceuticals – to help make breathing easier, pulmonary rehabilitation – a specific program of exercise and education surgery or a lung transplant – although this is only an option for a very small number of people. Much of the treatment for COPD includes self-management and prevention of COPD. Oxygen therapy can improve quality of life and is the only COPD therapy proven to extend life. Surgery is an option for some people with some forms of severe emphysema who aren't helped sufficiently by medications alone. Surgical options include: Lung volume reduction surgery, Lung transplant and Bullectomy. COPD Conferences will disclose the application of different treatments and therapies.

Track 17: Pediatric Pulmonary, Critical care and Sleep

Much of the focus of pulmonary rehabilitation, research and pneumonic medication goes toward the youngest individuals from society-the newborns. For instance, the reason for pulmonary stenosis is because of improper pulmonary valve improvement in the initial two months of fetal development. It's congenital but treatable. With a sound pulmonary stenosis diagnosis the heart valve can be replaced or repaired and children can grow to lead normal healthy lives. Sleep apnea affects premature babies. A situation called apnea of prematurity exists when the child doesn’t breath for 20 seconds or more. It is a pulmonary disease that can be treated with ventilation machines and medications. COPD Conferences explains about pediatric pulmonary, critical care and sleep which includes Pediatric emergencies, Pneumonia, Respiratory failure, Pediatric in-patient and critical care, Sepsis and Head Trauma & Concussion.

Track 18: Depression and anxiety in COPD

Depression and anxiety in COPD are regular in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), assessments of their pervasiveness differ significantly. These likely reflect the assortment of scales and strategies used to measure such symptoms. Patients with COPD with three or more comorbidities are more likely to be frequently hospitalized and may die prematurely compared to COPD patients without comorbidities.  An uplifted experience of dyspnoea is probably contributing component to anxiety. Feelings of depression may be precipitated by the loss and grief associated with the disability of COPD. Smoking has been associated with nicotine addiction, and the factors that contribute to smoking may also predispose to anxiety and depressive disorders. The cause of depression and anxiety symptoms are multifactorial and include behavioural, social and biological factors. Lung Conferences exhibits randomized controlled trials show that activity exercise training and precisely chose pharmacological treatment are regularly effective in ameliorating anxiety and depression.

Track 19: Self-Management and Prevention of COPD

Self-Management and Prevention of COPD interventions help patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) acquire and practise the skills they need to carry out disease-specific medical regimens, guide changes in health behaviour and provide emotional support to enable patients to control their disease. Patients with COPD confirmed by spirometry and symptoms and airflow obstruction should be monitored regularly to guide modification of treatment and to identify complications early Pulmonary Conferences will be focused on the self-management support programmes should be collaborative between healthcare professionals and patients, to help them acquire skills to understand and manage their medications and exacerbations of COPD, adopt healthier behaviours and manage the social-emotional consequences of the disease.

Track 20: Case Report

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is one of the leading causes of disability and death worldwide. COPD exacerbation is usually treated with antibiotics, systemic corticosteroids, and inhaled bronchodilators. COPD exacerbation was treated repeatedly with standard therapy. Dynamic expiratory computed tomography of the chest was done, which revealed concomitant tracheomalacia. COPD and tracheomalacia may coexist during recurrent exacerbations of COPD, and delayed diagnosis can be associated with severe comorbidities. Ordering the appropriate imaging technique may aid in the correct diagnosis and facilitate appropriate management. COPD Conferences will survey the evolution of pulmonology.

Importance & Scope

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the fourth leading causes of death in the world. Moreover, among the top five causes of death, this disease is the only one with increasing mortality rates. COPD is an essential public health problem in many countries which is evaluated to become the fifth reason for disability. COPD is a common condition that mainly affects aged or adults who smoke. The condition cannot be cured or reversed, but for many people treatment can help them to keep it under control so it does not affect their daily activities. COPD Conference 2018 is to understand the depth of the disease and proceed for the future research.

The COPD Conference 2018 will discover the new concepts and informative session program including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops on a variety of topics, poster presentations and various programs for participants from all over the world. We delightedly invite you to join us at the COPD Conference 2018, where you will have essential experience with scholars from around the world. All members from COPD Conference 2018 organizing committee look forward to meet you in Rome, Italy.

Why Rome?

Rome is the capital city of Italy and is the fourth most populous city in the European Union. It is the center of the Metropolitan City of Italy, which has a population of 4.3 million residents. Rome is a nationwide and major international center for higher education, containing numerous academies, colleges and universities. In Rome multiple national research centers for the treatment of COPD exist. It appears important to understand similarities and differences among them and how they might influence patient management in order to improve future development at both global and national levels. Due to the advancements in the field of COPD research in Rome , it is being the suitable destination for the conference.

Market Analysis Report:        

Increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases owing to the growing aging population and increasing pathogens in the environment has been the key factor driving the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) market globally. Pharmaceutical companies have been developing new bio-based medications in combination with bio-technology which promises immense growth opportunities along with sustainable development for COPD market over the next decade.

The global COPD drug market is a multi-billion dollar market which has a history of several decades and has witnessed number of technological advancements and product development over the past few years. Upcoming treatment methodologies such as once-a-day combination products and monoclonal antibodies have created new opportunities for the market growth. The global market for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) prescription drugs was valued at $34.9 billion in 2011. This figure is expected to reach $38 billion in 2012 and $47.1 billion in 2017, growing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4%.

Currently, North America leads the global market for COPD drugs and devices. However, North America and Europe is expected to lose out some of the market share to other emerging regional markets owing to the expiry of several patens of pharmaceutical companies operating in these regions. Asia Pacific is estimated to be the rapid regional market for COPD due to the increased incidence of respiratory diseases in industrial regions. 

Figure 1: Regional scope of COPD

A large decrease in COPD mortality rates COPD deaths fell only slightly, from 3 million in 1990 to 2.8 million in 2010 because the mean age of the population increased. The number of COPD deaths in 2010 would have risen to 5.2 million if the age specific mortality rates had remained constant. Changes in smoking led to only a small increase in age specific mortality rates. Global outlines of mortality are changing, mainly due to three related transformations: an epidemiological transition driven by change in global risks, with falling death rates in childhood associated with infectious disease, a demographic transition with more people surviving into later life, and a health care transition with improved efficacy of both preventive and curative or palliative treatments.
