field. This conference
is a collaborative event for the researchers from both
business and academia background and offers current and recent information on
of lung cancer, as well
as the possible therapies
and strategies to shape the future of lung cancer and COPD
research. We encourage physicians, nurses, researchers and
scientists as well as patients and advocates in the
lung cancer field
and those interested in attending this Conference. It is only
through an exchange of the widest variety of research that we can offer the
best program and benefits to our members and patients.
Track 1- Lung cancer:
Lung cancer or malignancy, generally called lung carcinoma, is a debilitating lung tumour depicted by uncontrolled cells advancement in tissues of the lung. This advancement can spread past the lung by the strategy of metastasis into neighbouring tissue or distinctive parts of the body. Most developments that start in the lung, known as basic lung malignancies, are carcinomas. The most surely understood appearances are weight decrease, shortness of breath, and chest torments.
Two types of lung cancer are as follows:
COPD is a kind of the lung ailment and exceptionally common issue that causes from the interaction of hereditary helplessness. COPD is a lung contamination that results from checks in the flying courses of the lungs that provoke breathing issues. COPD might be ensnared by unending bronchitis or emphysema; a couple of patients make the two issues that provoke additional breathing issues. A couple of clinicians think about steady bronchitis and emphysema as basically advance indications of COPD. Mischief to the lung tissue after some time causes physical changes in the lungs and the aeronautics courses wind up observably halted up with thick organic liquid. Consistence twists up evidently crippled in light of this lung tissue hurt. This weakened consistence or adaptability of the lungs suggests that oxygen can't get to the air spaces where oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange occurs in the lung. This all prompts hacking to remove the thick organic liquid and over the long haul, inconvenience in unwinding.
It is discovered that not a solitary quality records for a noteworthy piece of the articulation however a polygenic model is in charge of quality control. The noteworthy innovative advances have been made in hereditary assessment of complex maladies, in COPD there is an inadequacy of Alpha-1 Anti-trypsin (an uncommon acquired issue). It tends to be affected by ecological variables and cigarette smoking.
Track 3- Tuberculosis:
Tuberculosis (TB) is
sickness as a general rule caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). Tuberculosis
generally impacts the lungs, yet can
moreover impact distinctive parts of the body. Tuberculosis is
spread through the air when people who have dynamic Tuberculosis in
hack, spit, talk, or wheeze.
People with sit without moving Tuberculosis
don't spread the infirmity. Dynamic
sullying happens simply more frequently in people with HIV/AIDS
and in the people who smoke. Finish of
dynamic Tuberculosis relies
upon chest X-pillars,
and furthermore minor examination and culture of body fluids.
Finding of torpid Tuberculosis
relies upon the tuberculin
skin test (TST) or blood tests.
Track 4- Diagnostic Evaluation of lung cancer:
The recognition and conclusion of lung growth and COPD can be assessed by playing out the accompanying tests: Spirometry, chest radiography, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, CT filter, Arterial blood gas examination, Severity, finish blood check, transthoracic ultrasonography and Lung work tests. Spirometry estimates the measure of wind current obstacle display and is by and large done after the utilization of a bronchodilator. An Arterial blood gas test estimates the oxygen level in blood and the outcome can indicate how serious COPD is and whether tolerant need oxygen treatment. The differential conclusion is likewise performed for testing the asthma, congestive heart disappointment and aspiratory embolism.
Respiratory dissatisfaction in like manner can happen if your lungs can't really remove carbon dioxide (a waste gas) from your blood. An intemperate measure of carbon dioxide in your blood can hurt your body's organs. Respiratory frustration happens on account of lacking gas exchange by the respiratory system, inferring that the vein oxygen, carbon dioxide or both can't be kept at standard levels. A drop in the oxygen passed on in blood is known as hypoxemia; a climb in vein carbon dioxide levels is called hypercapnia.
Track 6- Cancer Awareness and Prevention:
Avoiding exposure to cancer causing substancesTaking medicines or vaccines
Track 7- Asthma:
Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airways to the lungs. It makes breathing difficult and can make some physical activities difficult or even impossible. Asthma symptoms, which include coughing, wheezing, and chest tightness, are common in an asthma attack. Sometimes asthma is called bronchial asthma or reactive airway disease.Asthma can be controlled with proper treatment..
Types of Asthma Include:
It is serious, sometimes life-threatening, and can get worse quickly. But it’s generally treatable and most people can recover from it. Fast diagnosis and treatment are important to your organs need enough oxygen to work right and keep you going.
Track 9- Bronchitis:
Bronchitis is an inflammation in the lungs that some people call a chest cold. It can be a miserable, but minor, illness that follows a viral illness like the common cold or may follow a more serious condition like a chronic smoker's hack. Bronchitis can also be caused by exposure to smoke, chemical irritants, or bacteria. A cough, phlegm, and feeling tired are typical symptoms of bronchitis, but these are also symptoms of other illnesses, so getting the right diagnosis and treatment is important.
Acute bronchitis: This is the more common one. Symptoms lasts for a few weeks, but it doesn't usually cause any problems past that.
Chronic bronchitis: This one is more serious, in that it keeps coming back or doesn’t go away at all. It’s one of the conditions that make up what's called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Pneumoconiosis is a lung disease caused by certain dust particles that are most often found in a work environment. Symptoms of pneumoconiosis include difficulty breathing and a cough. Pneumoconiosis can happen when a person breathes in dust particles such as asbestos, coal dust, or silica. If these particles enter airways or air sacs in the lungs, they can cause inflammation as the body tries to fight them off. The dust particles that cause pneumoconiosis are usually found in the workplace, so it is often called as an occupational disease. While pneumoconiosis is not curable, there are a variety of ways to manage it.
Track 10- Pneumoconiosis:
Track 11- Emphysema:
Emphysema is a form of chronic (long term) lung disease. This and chronic bronchitis are the two types of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the third- leading cause of death in the USA. These conditions are called "obstructive" because it's as though something is blocking the smooth flow of air in and out the lung.
Track 12- Cystic Fibrosis:
Cystic Fibrosis affects the cells in your body that make mucus, sweat and digestive fluids. Normally these are very thin and slippery to keep systems in your body running smoothly. But if you have Cystic Fibrosis, they become thick and glue like. This blocks the tubes and ducts throughout your body.
Over time, mucus builds up inside your airway. This makes a struggle. The mucus traps germs and leads to infections. It can also cause severe lung damage like cysts (fluid-filled sacs) and fibrosis (scar tissue). That's how Cystic Fibrosis got its name.
Track 13- Bronchial Carcinoids:
Bronchial carcinoids account for up to 5% of lung cancers. These tumours are generally small (3-4 cm or less) when diagnosed and occur most commonly in persons under age 40. Unrelated to cigarette smoking, carcinoid tumours can metastasize, and a small proportion of these tumours secrete hormone-like substances. Carcinoids generally grow and spread more slowly than bronchogenic cancers, and many are detected early enough to be surgically removed. Cancers of supporting lung tissue such as smooth muscle, blood vessels, or cells involved in the immune response are rare in the lung.
Bronchoconstriction is a
condition in which the smooth muscles of the bronchus contracts. The bronchus is a pathway that
moves air to and from the lungs. This muscle contraction causes
the bronchus to narrow and
restrict the amount of air passing into and out of your lungs. Bronchoconstriction usually
occurs in , , and other
lung diseases. However, bronchoconstriction can
also happen to those without any lung disease during intense
exercise. The specific cause of bronchoconstriction isn’t
known. However, some things are known triggers of bronchoconstriction as well
These triggers may include:
Common trigger of bronchoconstriction is intense or strenuous exercise. When this condition happens to someone with asthma, it’s called exercise-induced asthma. However, it can also sometimes occur in people who don’t have any type of lung disease. In this type of constriction the bronchoconstriction only happens when the people are performing strenuous exercise. The condition is alleviated when the exercise is stopped. This can be called as exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB). The triggers of EIB may include those listed above for bronchoconstriction in general. But the primary trigger of EIB is endurance activities. This type of activity includes long periods of deep breathing.
Track 15- Pneumonia:
Symptoms of Pneumonia-
The symptoms of pneumonia can develop suddenly over 24 to 48 hours, or
they may come on more slowly over several days.
Feeling generally unwell
Sweating and shivering
Loss of appetite
Track 16- Pulmonary Hypertension:
Pulmonary hypertension is a type of high blood pressure that affects the arteries in your lungs and the right side of your heart. In one form of pulmonary hypertension, tiny arteries in your lungs, called pulmonary arterioles, and capillaries become narrowed, blocked or destroyed. This makes it harder for blood to flow through your lungs, and raises pressure within your lungs arteries. As the pressure builds, your heart's lower right chamber (right ventricle) must work harder to pump blood through your lungs, eventually causing your heart muscle to weaken and fail.
Some forms of pulmonary hypertension are serious conditions that become progressively worse and are sometimes fatal. Although some forms of pulmonary hypertension aren't curable, treatment can help lessen symptoms and improve your quality of life.
The signs and symptoms of pulmonary hypertension in
its early stages might not be noticeable for months or even years. As the
disease progresses, symptoms become worse.
Pulmonary hypertension symptoms include:
Dizziness or fainting spells (syncope)
Chest pressure or pain
Bluish color to your lips and skin (cyanosis)
Racing pulse or heart palpitations
Track 17- Pulmonary Embolism:
Pulmonary embolism is a blockage in one of the pulmonary arteries in your lungs. In most cases, pulmonary embolism is caused by blood clots that travel to the lungs from the legs or, rarely, other parts of the body (deep vein thrombosis). Because the clots block blood flow to the lungs, pulmonary embolism can be life-threatening. However, prompt treatment greatly reduces the risk of death. Taking measures to prevent blood clots in your legs will help protect you against pulmonary embolism. Pulmonary embolism symptoms can vary greatly, depending on how much of your lung is involved, the size of the clots, and whether you have underlying lung or heart disease.
Common symptoms include:
Shortness of breath. This symptom typically appears suddenly and always gets worse with exertion.
Chest pain. You may feel like you're having a heart attack. The pain may become worse when you breathe deeply (pleurisy), cough, eat, bend or stoop. The pain will get worse with exertion but won't go away when you rest.
Other signs and
symptoms that can occur with pulmonary embolism include:
Leg pain or swelling, or both, usually in the calf
Rapid or irregular heartbeat
Light headedness or dizziness
