7th Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease

November 20-22, 2014 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The development of the next generation of Alzheimer’s disease treatments is among the most important health needs worldwide, but presents huge challenges. The goal of the meeting is to bring together today’s worldwide leaders in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease to discuss new results, candidate therapeutics, and methodological issues important to the development of the next generation of Alzheimer’s disease treatments.

Clinical trial teams from worldwide centers will report on their efforts to identify new biomarkers of disease as well as more sensitive clinical assessment tools to identify those at risk for AD, predict progression, and assess the effectiveness of new treatments.

The future of clinical trials may lie in the development of combination therapies of two or more drugs. CTAD 2014 will highlight the latest on trying to get these trials off the ground.

Overall, the aim of the conference is to overcome the hurdles and speed the development of effective treatments.

Antibiotic Alternatives for the New Millennium

Wednesday, 05 November 2014 09:00-Friday, 07 November 2014 17:00 London, United Kingdom

The inexorable rise in the incidence of antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens, coupled with the disappointingly low rate of emergence of new,clinically useful antibiotics, has refocused attention on finding alternatives to antibiotic treatments. This event will discuss the potential utility of phages, probiotics, antimicrobial peptides, herbal medicines and immune modulation for treating human and animal disease.

Who Should Attend

From researchers trying to find alternatives to therapies to pharmacists delivering treatments: any one with an interest in antibiotic alternatives would find this event of value.

Targeting VEGF-Mediated Tumor Angiogenesis in Cancer Therapy

Targeting VEGF-Mediated Tumor Angiogenesis in Cancer Therapy

June 19 - 20, 2014 The New York Academy of Sciences

A decade after the first cancer drug targeting VEGF signaling in tumor blood vessel formation received approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), significant effort has been dedicated toward progressing the research, development, and clinical application of anti-angiogenic cancer therapies.  Drawing on lessons learned from successes and failures, this conference will examine ways to improve cancer therapy by addressing urgent issues such as:

i. inherent /acquired resistance,

ii. immunomodulation,

iii. enhanced invasiveness / metastasis, and

iv. lack of validated predictive and prognostic biomarkers.

Presentations, including a keynote lecture by Harold F. Dvorak, MD, will explore VEGF-dependent and alternative mechanisms of angiogenesis. “Point–Counterpoint” debates between leading experts will aim to resolve controversies regarding the function of vascular normalization, treatment-induced metastasis, and the validity of hypertension as a physiological biomarker.

Clinical Translation of Stem Cells 2014

April 21-22, 2014 Palm Springs California

SELECTBIO Clinical Translation of Stem Cells 2014 brings together basic scientists, clinician-scientists, as well as medical practitioners/surgeons focusing on studying, characterizing, and deploying various classes of stem cells for therapeutic utility.

In addition to top-tier presentations during this conference, SELECTBIO has also partnered with surgeons and surgery centers in the Palm Springs area to offer conference delegates a "hands-on" Clinical Practicum providing conference delegates the ability to observe in real-time adipose tissue extraction and processing ex vivo.  This "hands-on" demonstration led by leading surgeons in the field is in full compliance with applicable laws and regulations and performed by board-certified surgeons.

This conference therefore provides valuable learning and networking experiences for both basic researchers and clinicians alike seeking the most up-to-date information, protocols, and products in this emerging field.

All delegates are automatically registered to the Clinical Practicum which will be conducted in the evening after the conclusion of the conference presentations.

Agenda Topics

• Adipose-derived Stem Cells

• Clinical Utility

• Disease Classes Addressed and Current Status of Ongoing Clinical Trials

• Regulatory Landscape and Ethical Considerations

• Research and Clinical Perspectives

◦ Cosmetic Surgery and Associated Applications

◦ Regenerative Medicine

• Translational Research Activities with Adult Stem Cells

• Umbilical Cord Blood-derived Stem Cells

This Conference and Associated Clinical Practicum is Ideally Suited for the Following Audiences:

• Basic Researchers Seeking to Drive their Innovations towards Translational/Clinical Applications

• Clinician-Scientists

• Cosmetic Surgeons, Surgeons Seeking to Understand the Regenerative Medicine/Stem Cells Space

• Attorneys, Investors, Regulatory Agency Professionals Seeking Clarity in the Regenerative Medicine/Stem Cell Therapy Field

11th Annual International Symposium of Ultrasound for Regional Anesthesia, Pain Medicine and Perioperative Applications (ISURA)
Canada
06/21/2014

11th Annual International Symposium of Ultrasound for Regional Anesthesia, Pain Medicine and Perioperative Applications (ISURA)

June 21-24, 2014 Toronto, Canada

The ISURA 2014 scientific program has included distinguished national and international guest faculty and University of Toronto faculty. There will be:

2 days of lectures and hands on workshops for regional anesthesia

2 days for pain medicine and MSK imaging

½ day of cadaver workshop for pain medicine (optional)

2 days for peri-operative application

Both basic and advanced procedures will be discussed. There will be plenty of time for panel discussion, group scanning, and hands on practice on live subjects, pig carcass, and phantom simulators.

By the end of the conference, the participants will be able to:

Describe the basic principles of ultrasound guided regional anesthesia and interventional pain procedures.

Identify proper approaches to image nerve and musculoskeletal structures and insert needle.

Critically interpret images of nerve, vessels and musculoskeletal structures including anatomical variants and artifacts.

Develop the cognitive and practical skills on the use of ultrasound for regional anesthesia and interventional pain procedures.

Develop a practical understanding of MSK imaging for pain evaluation.

Understand the utility of ultrasound for perioperative applications.

All in all, this conference is designed to provide anesthesiologists and pain practitioners a comprehensive review of ultrasound imaging for regional anesthesia, pain medicine (diagnosis and intervention) and perioperative medicine. Our panel of international and national renowned faculty will provide you with the latest developments and state-of-the-art information in the world of ultrasound.
