Scientific Sessions

Session 1: Lung cancer

Cancerous tumour is a group of cancer cells that can grow into and destroy nearby tissue and can spread to other parts of the body. When cancer starts in lung cells, it is called as primary lung cancer. Cells in the lungs sometimes change and no longer grow or behave normally. These changes may lead to non-cancerous tumours such as hamartoma and papilloma.

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC)
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)
  


Session 2: Stages & Severity of Lung Diseases

There are two stages in small cell lung cancer. They are limited stage and extensive stage. Whereas non-small cell lung cancer is divided into four different stages depending upon the tumour size and location, number of nearby lymph nodes that have involved and how far the cancer has spread.

 

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. It mainly affects middle-aged or older adults who smoke.it is not contagious. The breathing problems gradually worsen over time and can limit normal activities, particularly if smoking exposure continues increasing breathlessness.

Cough with phlegm
Frequent chest infections
Persistent wheezing
 
 
Session 4: Causes of COPD

Long-term exposure to lung irritants that damage the lungs and the airways is the main cause of COPD. Lungs may become inflamed and narrowed. The main cause is smoking, while in few cases it may be due to air pollution, chemical fumes and dust or occur as a result of a rare genetic problem.
Bronchitis
Emphysema
 
 

Inflammation is present in the lungs of people who smoke. This response to the inhaled toxins is increased in COPD, leading to tissue destruction, impairment of the defence mechanisms and disruption of the repair mechanisms. In general, the inflammatory and structural changes in the airways increase with disease severity and persist even after the smoking cessation. Apart from inflammation, two processes are involved in the pathogenesis of COPD—an imbalance between proteases and antiproteases and an imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants in the lungs.
Tuberculosis
Asthma
Pneumonia
Bronchiolitis
Ciliary dysfunction or primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD)
Pulmonary hypertension
Hyperinflation
 

Session 6: Surgical & Radiation Oncology

Surgical oncology is the branch of surgery applied to cancer; it focuses on the surgical management of tumours, especially cancerous tumours. As one of several modalities in the management of cancer, the specialty of surgical oncology, before modern medicine the only cancer treatment with a chance of success, has evolved in steps similar to medical oncology (pharmacotherapy for cancer), which grew out of haematology, and radiation oncology, which grew out of radiology. The proliferation of cancer centres will continue to popularize the field, as will developments in minimally invasive techniques, palliative surgery, and neo-adjuvant treatments. Radiation oncology is one of the three primary specialties, the other two being surgical and medical oncology, involved in the treatment of cancer. A Radiation Oncologist is a specialist physician who uses ionizing radiation (such as megavoltage X-rays or radionuclides) in the treatment of cancer. Brachytherapy is an advanced cancer treatment. Radioactive seeds or sources are placed in or near a tumour itself, giving a high radiation dose to a tumour while reducing the radiation exposure in the surrounding healthy tissues. External beam therapy (EBT), also called external radiation therapy, is a method for delivering a beam or several beams of high-energy x-rays to a patient's tumour. Intraoperative radiation therapy or IORT is the application of therapeutic levels of radiation to the tumour bed while the area is exposed during surgery.

Session 7: Comorbidities of Pulmonary Diseases

COPD, like other chronic disorders, has been associated with comorbidities that increase in number and severity with age. Comorbidities increase the risk for exacerbations and increase the risk of mortality. Over 80% of patients with COPD were estimated to have at least one comorbid chronic condition. Comorbidities like diabetes mellitus, cardiac disease, osteoporosis, hypertension, cachexia, sleep disturbance, and psychological disorders are commonly reported in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Tobacco smoking is main risk factor for many of these comorbidities as well as for COPD.

Session 8: Lung Diseases, Cancer & its Epidemiology

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is responsible for early mortality, high death rates and significant cost to health systems. The projection for 2020 indicates that COPD will be the third leading cause of death in the world.  Active smoking remains the main risk factor, but other factors such as occupational factors, infections and the role of air pollution also play a major role. Prevalence of COPD varies according to the country, age and sex. The major challenge in the coming years will be to prevent onset of smoking along with early detection of the disease in the population. An estimated 328 million people have COPD worldwide and in 15 years, COPD is expected to become the leading cause of death worldwide.

 

The first and important step in diagnosing COPD is a thorough evaluation by an experienced doctor. There are different types of breathing tests that can be done during pulmonary function testing which helps the doctor to understand the severity of disease. Diagnosis of COPD involves:
Spirometry
Lung diffusion tests
Alpha-1- antitrypsin deficiency screening
Body plethysmography
Complete blood count
Pulse oximetry
Arterial blood gases
Chest x ray
CT scan
 
 

Session 10: Clinical Trials on COPD

Drug-treatment trials have allowed useful advances to be made in the treatment and diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The two main clinical trial designs are randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and observational studies.  RCTs are generally considered to provide more robust evidence than that obtained from observational studies. However, well-designed comparator controlled RCTs, although successful, have been shown to have some limitations, such as a lack of generalizability. Observational studies can generate valuable data.

 

Session 11: Cancer Biology & Genetics

 

Cancer is caused when cells within the body accumulate genetic mutations and start to grow in an uncontrolled manner. Understanding how cancer develops and progresses, including how gene mutations drive the growth and spread of cancer cells, and how tumors interact with their surrounding environment, is vital for the discovery of new targeted cancer treatments.

Tumor Biology

Cancer Epigenetics

Oncogenes & Proto-oncogenes

Tumor Suppressor Genes



About one-third of lung cancer patients are diagnosed with localized disease that may be treated by either surgical resection or, if the patient is not a candidate for full surgical resection, with definitive radiotherapy Another third of patients have disease that has already spread to the lymph nodes. In these cases, radiation therapy along with chemotherapy and occasionally surgery is used.

Short acting bronchodilators
Corticosteroids
Protein kinase inhibitors
Methyl xanthine
Long acting bronchodilators
 
 

Most people have mild forms of the disease for which small therapy is needed. Even for more advanced stages of disease, effective therapy is available that can control symptoms, reduce risk of complications and exacerbations, and improve the ability to lead a healthy and active life. Treatment may differ from person to person. Treatment includes:
Smoking cessation
Medications
Phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitors
Theophylline
Antibiotics
Oxygen therapy
Pulmonary rehabilitation program
 
 

Mutational analysis and genomics profiling in recent years have advanced the field of lung cancer genetics significantly. It is becoming more accepted now that the identification of genomic alterations in lung cancer can impact therapeutics, especially when the alterations represent “oncogenic drivers” in the processes of tumorigenesis. Genetic testing is now a routine part of diagnosis and staging for every patient suffering with lung cancer and COPD. Genetics plays an important role as less than 20% of smokers develop this deadly disease in their lifetime and non-smokers with a family history of cancer have an increased risk of lung cancer.

 

A risk factor is anything that affects a person’s chance of getting a disease. Lung cancer is the most frequent malignant neoplasm in most countries, and the main cancer-related cause of mortality worldwide. The geographic and temporal patterns of lung cancer incidence, as well as lung cancer mortality, on a population level are chiefly determined by tobacco consumption, the main aetiological factor in lung carcinogenesis.
Tobacco smoke
Exposure to radon
Exposure to asbestos
Inhaled chemicals
Air pollution
Family history

 

Diagnosis is the process of finding out the cause of a health problem by performing various tests.
Chest X-ray
CT scan
PET-CT scan
Bronchoscopy and biopsy
Thoracentesis
Endoscopy
Sputum tests
  

 

Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease require greater motivation to seek help when symptom changes occur and are unaware of their increased risk of developing lung cancer further. Prevention of COPD is very crucial. People with COPD have difficulty in clearing their lungs containing bacteria, dusts and other pollutants. This may lead to lung infections that may cause further damage to the lungs. With the advent of industrial control measures to minimize air levels, acute pulmonary syndromes have virtually disappeared in respective to COPD. 
Smoking cessation
Vaccinations like influenza vaccination and pneumococcal vaccine
Avoiding exposure to second-hand smoke
Protecting against chemicals, dust and fumes
 

Market Analysis

       Importance & Scope of Lung Cancer And COPD Conference 2019

Lung cancer

The global lung cancer therapeutics market is expected to grow significantly in the future. North America dominated the global lung cancer therapeutics market over the past few years. The high demand in the region was sustained by factors which include increasing occurrences of lung cancer and rising levels of geriatric population. Asia-Pacific is projected to foresee the highest growth rate in the global lung cancer therapeutics market over the next eight years. Lung cancer is the leading cause of death in Europe, accounting for approximately 350 million deaths annually.

COPD

Increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases owing to the growing aging population and increasing pathogens in the environment has been the key factor driving the asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) market globally. Worldwide US continent is the largest market for COPD. A recent market assessment study shows that COPD is the major cause of death, whose prevalence is on the rise and is predicted to be the third leading cause of death globally by 2030. Increase in commonness of COPD, increment in the geriatric populace and development of the pharmaceutical business are foreseen to fuel the development of COPD treatment market in Asia Pacific.
