TRACK 1: Gastroenterology: Clinical and Diagnostics

The gastrointestinal diseases need treatment, pharmacological treatment are separated into 2 groups- the Prescription Drugs and Over the Counter (OTC) drugs. Gastrointestinal drugs are approved based on the diagnostic outcomes generated through the haematological or imaging tests. The most common diagnosis is completed through endoscopy. The treatments are recommended based on gastrointestinal tract disorders, gastrointestinal tract walls disorders, gastrointestinal motility disorders, gastrointestinal cancers.

  • Probiotics
  • Peritoneal infections
  • Over the Counter Drugs (OTC)

TRACK 2: Gastroenterology and Hepatology

Gastroenterology and Hepatology are the parts of human body science in which we study about the human digestive system disorders. In these divisions the Researchers are concentrating on preventing and treating digestive system and liver disorders. Gastroenterologist and Hepatologists aid the human beings for providing treatment to these kinds of problems. Both Gastroenterology and Hepatology are being used to treat liver diseases, liver cancer, and liver disorders.

TRACK 3: Gastrointestinal Immunology and Pathology

The gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) takes part in double role of human physiology: digestion and uptake of nutrients and the other daunting task of keeping immune homeostasis (defending the body from possibly dangerous microbes, while inducing tolerogenic responses to innocuous food, commensals and self-antigens). Gastrointestinal Pathology is sub-part of surgical pathology. It takes part with the investigation and exposure of neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the digestive tract and accessory organs, such as the pancreas and liver.

  • Surgical Pathology
  • Immune Homeostasis

TRACK 4: Gastrointestinal Oncology and Radiology

Digestive cancers can have extensive effects on our health, nutritional status, and quality of life. It shows the indications of internal bleeding, acute pains, swelling, inability to digest, trouble in swallowing or chronic constipation or severe diarrhea. Radiology can be done in many ways like x-ray, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging. Computed tomography currently allows broad assessment of abdominal and pelvic inflammatory and infectious processes, obstruction, tumour detection and staging, and display of vasculature and blunt trauma effects.

TRACK 5: Gastrointestinal Disorders

Gastrointestinal Disorders is the word used to refer to any disorder or disease that happens within the gastrointestinal tract. The gastrointestinal tract (also called the GI tract) is a sequence of hollow organs that form an elongated continuous passage from our mouth to our anus. A sum of different conditions or diseases can affect the GI tract and have an impact on digestion and/or our overall health. Some circumstances have similar symptoms, and additional medical investigations may be vital before a doctor arrives at a diagnosis.

TRACK 6: Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) take place when stomach acid repeatedly streams back into the tube connecting the mouth and stomach (esophagus). This backwash (acid reflux) can annoy the lining of the esophagus. Many people experience this acid reflux from time to time. GERD is slight acid reflux that happens at least twice a week or adequate to severe acid reflux that happens at least once a week.

TRACK 7: Pancreatic Diseases

The pancreas is a gland behind the stomach and in front of the spine. It creates juices that aid to break down the food and hormones that help to regulate blood sugar levels. Difficulties with the pancreas can lead to numerous health problems. The pancreas too plays a role in diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the beta cells of the pancreas no longer create insulin as the body's immune system has attacked them. In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas loses the capacity to secrete sufficient insulin in response to meals.

  • Pancreatitis
  • Pancreatic Cancer
  • Cystic Fibrosis

TRACK 8: Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) signifies a collection of intestinal disorders that cause prolonged inflammation of the digestive tract. It’s accountable for breaking down food, extracting the nutrients, and eliminating any useless material and waste products. Inflammation anyplace along the digestive tract interferes with this normal process. IBD can be very painful and troublesome. In rare cases, it might even be life threatening.

TRACK 9: Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is carefully linked to overweight or obesity and inactivity. Metabolic syndrome is a bunch of conditions that happen together, increasing the danger of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. These conditions comprise of increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and irregular cholesterol or triglyceride levels.

  • Diabetes
  • Blurred Vision
  • Obesity

TRACK 10: Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer (CRC), also identified as bowel cancer, colon cancer, or rectal cancer, is the growth of cancer from the colon or rectum (parts of the large intestine).Signs and indications may comprise of blood in the stool, a variation in bowel movements, weight loss, and fatigue. Most colorectal cancers are due to old age and lifestyle issues, with only a minor amount of cases due to underlying genetic disorders. Risk factors comprise of diet, obesity, smoking, and absence of physical activity. Dietary factors that intensify the risk include red meat, processed meat, and alcohol.

TRACK 11: Gallbladder and Biliary Disease

The gallbladder is a small pear-shaped sac set below the liver. Inflammation is the cause of majority gallbladder diseases due to irritation of the gallbladder walls, which is also known as cholecystitis. This inflammation is often due to gallstones hindering the ducts leading to the small intestine and affecting the bile to build up. It may finally lead to necrosis (tissue destruction) or gangrene. Biliary disease refers to diseases distressing the bile ducts, gallbladder and other structures involved in the production and transportation of bile. Bile is a fluid formed by the liver that helps in digestion.

TRACK 12: Obesity or Bariatric Surgery

Obesity has turn out to be a global health problem that adds to many life-threatening and disabling diseases, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus and coronary artery disease. Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) comprises of a range of measures implemented on individuals who have obesity. This is completed by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch.

  • Obesity
  • Coronary Artery Disease
  • Gastric Band

TRACK 13: Liver Diseases & Hepatitis

Hepatitis and cirrhosis are equally responsible for affecting the liver. Meanwhile hepatitis and cirrhosis are in numerous ways on a continuum of disease, the signs may be very alike. Hepatitis may or may not be reversible (curable), whereas cirrhosis refers to everlasting scarring of the liver, often as the consequence of chronic hepatitis. While certain forms of hepatitis may come on very rapidly, cirrhosis also tends to grow more gradually.

  • Jaundice
  • Cirrhosis
  • Bacterial peritonitis

TRACK 14: Intestinal Rehabilitation

Intestinal Rehabilitation mostly deals with the process of restoring enteral autonomy and thus letting freedom from parenteral nutrition commonly by means of dietary, medical and occasionally surgical strategies. Intestinal rehabilitation happens as a result of enhanced bowel adaptation or short bowel syndrome. A coordinated team of gastroenterologists, surgeons and nutritionists offer long-term care to patients with small or malformed intestines.

  • Short Bowel Syndrome
  • Motility Disorders
  • Absorptive Disorders

TRACK 15: Chronic Liver Disease

Cirrhosis is a long-term chronic liver disease. The most common reasons are hepatitis and other viruses, and alcohol abuse. Other medical problems can also affect it. The injury to the liver generally can't be reversed. The symptoms may vary, depending on how severe cirrhosis is. Mild cirrhosis might not cause any symptoms at all. Cirrhosis is a progressive liver disease that occurs over time. The injury to the liver can at times reverse or improve if the trigger is gone, such as stop drinking alcohol or if the virus is properly treated. The objective of the treatment is to slow down the buildup of scar tissue and avert or treat other health problems.

TRACK 16: Irritable bowel syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that upsets the large intestine. Signs and symptoms comprise of cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or both. IBS is a chronic condition that an individual needs to manage for a long term. Only a slight number of people with IBS have severe signs and symptoms. Some people can control their symptoms by handling proper diet, lifestyle and stress. More-severe symptoms can be treated with medication and therapy. IBS doesn't cause variations in bowel tissue or increases the risk of colorectal cancer.

TRACK 17: Hemorrhoids and Ulcerative Colitis

Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the lower rectum of an individual. Internal hemorrhoids are typically painless, but incline to bleed. External hemorrhoids might cause pain. Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are swollen veins in the anus and lower rectum, like the varicose veins. Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that is one of the causes of inflammation and ulcers in the digestive tract. Ulcerative colitis affects the innermost coating of the large intestine and rectum of an individual.

TRACK 18: Advancements in Digestive Diseases

Any disorder or problem in stomach tract can be identified as digestive disease. From last few years a lot of experts and researchers are working on digestive system and they have done a wonderful work in this field. Laparoscopies, x-rays, ultrasound, in vitro diagnostics, cancer screeningmagnetic resonance imaging, Cholangiopancreatography are the different methods of identifying these kinds of disorders. These types of novel inventions are helpful for the treatment and curing the digestive disorders. The effort on new technologies is still going on and it will benefit us to cure the disease in short time interval.

  • Laparoscopies
  • Ultrasound
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging

TRACK 19: Recent Advances in Gastroenterology

Gastroenterology has developed from the backwoods of medical specialties only over the past 20 years. It is because of enormous development in the area of diagnosis and treatment. Gastroenterology has undertaken binary fission into hepatology and “hollow organ” gastroenterology. Improvements in colorectal cancer screening, capsule endoscopy, cures for hepatitis C and novel biologic therapies are few of the new advances in gastroenterology.

  • Colorectal Cancer Screening
  • Capsule Endoscopy

TRACK 20: Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures in Gastroenterology

Diagnostic gastroenterology is the method that is used by the doctors and specialists for treating the disease by diagnosis of gastrointestinal system and these types of procedures helps to decrease the pain and improve the situation of the suffering persons. Cancer radiation therapy, chemotherapy, therapeutic endoscopy are the part of gastroenterology which are beneficial for curing and preventing the digestive disorders.

  • Chemotherapy
  • Therapeutic Endoscopy
  • Cancer Radiation Therapy


Scope and Importance

Market analysis of gastroenterology tells us about the significance of this subject in present, past as well as in the future. The term gastroenterology is connected to the gastrointestinal cancer, liver cancer, gastrointestinal disorders, cancers but it as well comprises the treatment, therapy, diagnosis and prevention from these types of disorders. In recent years loads of research work is going on for the human welfare. The chief objective for this kind of conferences is to spread alertness amongst the persons who are suffering from these kinds of disorders. According to the latest survey the half population of the world is suffering from these forms of disorders. It means out of 10 the 6 people are suffering from this disorder. According to the WHO report, colon cancer affected approximately 694,000 deaths in 2014.

Market Growth of Gastroenterology Therapeutics

The market development of gastroenterology comprises all the elements which are linked to the digestive tract all contains the worldwide data of diagnostic and therapeutic probable market growth in future. The scope of the global gastrointestinal therapeutics market was USD 34.0 billion in 2019 and is supposed to reach 65.1 billion by 2025, accelerating at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2017 to 2025. The global gastrointestinal drugs market is estimated to develop from $46.68 billion in 2020 to $48.74 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4%.
