Sessions / Tracks

Track 1: Acute Exacerbation of COPD

COPD exacerbations are also known as acute exacerbations which is a worsening of COPD symptoms. An acute exacerbation is defined as increased breath shortness, increased production of sputum. There are many causes of acute exacerbation are: Respiratory exacerbation, in which many bacteria (pathogens) and viruses, not only this but allergens, toxins and air pollution is also responsible for COPD. It can be prevented by vaccination against the pathogens and also by some agonists (long acting beta-adrenoceptor agonists (LABAs)), inhaled corticosteroids, antibiotics and antivirals.

Track 2: Genetics of COPD

COPD is a type of the lung disease and highly prevalent disorder that causes from the interplay of genetic susceptibility. It is found that not a single gene accounts for a major part of the expression but a polygenic model is responsible for gene control. The significant technological advances have been made in genetic evaluation of complex diseases, in COPD there is a deficiency of Alpha-1 Anti-trypsin (a rare inherited disorders). It can be influenced by environmental factors and cigarette smoking.

Track 3: Chronic Pulmonary Hypertension

Chronic Pulmonary hypertension is a type of increase blood pressure in the lungs arteries and right side of the heart.  Pulmonary hypertension symptoms include the breath shortness, chest pain and swelling of legs. In this hypertension, the pulmonary arterioles and capillaries become narrowed, destroyed and blocked, which makes the capillaries difficult to flow the blood through lungs.

Track 4: Prevention and management of COPD

COPD Patients faces difficulty in clearing their lungs; with dusts, bacteria and other pollutants presents in surrounding atmosphere/environment. In most cases, COPD are potentially preventable through decreasing the smoke exposure and improving air quality. COPD exacerbations, hospitalizations and death can be cured by Influenza vaccination. It is known that, there is no alternative cure for COPD, but the symptoms are curely treatable and its progression can be delayed. It can be managed by the reducing the risk factors and by preventing and treating the acute exacerbation and associated illness. Breathing may be supported by Noninvasive ventilation.

Track 5: Pathophysiology and Pathogenesis of COPD

The pathogenesis of COPD is that constant airflow restriction. Airspace inflammation appears to be diverse in vulnerable smokers and Chronic Inflammation includes a power of breathed in aggravations, for example, CD8+ T lymphocytes, neutrophils, and macrophages, B cells and macrophages together  when activated, these cells start a inflammatory cascade(tumor necrosis factor alpha) and prompts to structural changes. Airway rebuilding in COPD is an immediate consequence of the inflammatory response related with COPD and resulting in the narrowing of the airways. Chronic Inflammation may also be added by bacterial infection.

The diseases that includes under the COPD are: Chronic Bronchitis, Emphysema and COPD-Asthma overlap. Bronchitis causes inflammation and irritation of the airways in the lungs. Over time, this mucus plugs up airways and makes breathing difficult. Emphysema is a common type of COPD in which the lung’s air sacs become damaged and destroyed. This damaged area makes difficulty for the people with emphysema to expel air from their lungs. Asthma COPD Overlap Syndrome (ACOS) usually includes increased reversibility of airflow obstruction, systemic inflammation and eosinophilic bronchial

·         Chronic Pulmonary Hypertension

·         Chronic Pulmonary Rehabilitation

·         Alpha-1 antitrypsin(AAT) deficiency

Track 6: Lung cancer and its function

Lung cancer is a lung tumor that is malignant, which is caused by uncontrolled cell growth in the lung’s tissues. It is also known as lung carcinoma, and the growth can spread beyond the lung by the process of metastasis into nearby tissue or other parts of the body. Patients with COPD are at high risk for both the development of primary lung cancer. There are two main types of lung cancer are small-cell lung carcinoma(sclc) and non-small-cell lung carcinoma(nsclc). The common symptoms for lung cancer are coughing (including coughing up blood), weight loss, shortness of breath, and chest pains. On the other hand, the chronic pulmonary disease could be a influencing factor in lung cancer, it increases the oxidative stress and results in DNA damage, chronic exposure,and increased cellular proliferation.

Track 7: COPD Epidemiology

COPD Epidemiology is the review and investigation of the examples, causes, and impacts of Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in the population. According to the World Health Organization, COPD is the fourth foremost cause of death in the world, with almost 2.75 million deaths per annum, or 4.8% of deaths. In France, the mortality rate is approximately 40 deaths per 100,000 populations. At one time, COPD was more regular in men, but since of expanded tobacco use among ladies in high-wage nations and the higher danger of introduction to indoor air contamination in low-wage nations, this disease affects men and women almost equally.

Track 8: Risks of COPD and Cardiovascular Diseases

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (lung disease) and cardiovascular disease (heart disease) both share tobacco (smoking) as a major risk factor. Cardiovascular Disease significantly contributes to both mortality and morbidity in COPD. The other risk factors which are responsible for both COPD and Cardiovascular disease that includes:

·         a sedentary lifestyle contribute to the natural history of each of these conditions. Novel mechanisms are involved in the pathology and genetics of cardiovascular disease, and these may play an important role in driving the risks associated with COPD.

Track 9: Diagnostic Evaluation of COPD

The detection and diagnosis of COPD can be evaluated by performing the following tests: Spirometry, CT Scan, Chest X-ray, Arterial blood gas analysis, Severity, complete blood count, transthoracic ultrasonography and Lung function tests. Spirometry measures the amount of airflow obstruction present and is generally done after the use of a bronchodilator. An Arterial blood gas test measures the oxygen level in blood and the result can show how severe COPD is and whether patient need oxygen therapy. The differential diagnosis is also performed for testing the asthma, congestive heart failure and pulmonary embolism.

Track 10: Co-morbidities and COPD

Comorbidities and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are ubiquitous. Comorbidities such as coronary artery disease, diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, hypertension and muscle weakness are commonly seen in the person with Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Smoking of tobacco is a common factor for many of these comorbidities and COPD, making it tough to draw conclusions about the relationship between COPD and these comorbidities including Lung Cancer. Pneumonia occurs when bacteria enter the lungs; which can weaken the lungs by creating an infection. This can lead to continuous illness and this downward spiral can lead to a rapid deterioration of health in COPD patient. Respiratory Insufficiency is a major complication of Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Market Analysis

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an umbrella term used to describe obstructive lung diseases including emphysema, chronic bronchitis, refractory asthma and some forms of bronchiectasis. This disease is characterized by shortness of breath and cough with sputum production.
