Tracks and Sessions
Track 1: Influenza Pandemic
Flu pandemics have wave nature; in 1918-1919, 1889-1990 pandemics, the flu was observed in three to four waves with increased mortality. In 1918, deadly strain of influenza A virus resulted in the pandemic; Spanish flu which was a subtype of H1N1 strain. It lasted from 1918-1920. Estimates show that around 40-50 million people were killed in the pandemic while new estimates shoew that around 50-100 million people died. It was considered as “greatest holocaust in history” which was responsible for mortality of people similar to that of the “Black Death”
Track 2: Influenza Virus
Seasonal influenza normally known as "flu", is an irresistible sickness caused by a flu infection. Side effects can be gentle to extreme. The most widely recognized manifestations include: a high fever, runny nose, sore throat, muscle torments, cerebral pain, hacking, and feeling tired. It can be hard to recognize the regular cool and flu in the beginning times of these diseases. Flu is a blend of side effects of normal cool and pneumonia, body hurt, cerebral pain, and weariness. Looseness of the bowels isn't regularly a side effect of flu in adults, despite the fact that it has been found in some human instances of the H5N1 "bird flu" and can be a manifestation in children.
Track 3: Immunology and Genetic Features
RNA viruses from the Orthomyxoviridae family are responsible for the Flu. All the influenza viruses consists of eight single negative stranded RNA segments as their genome. These segments are encapsulated in protein capsids. The capsid consists of antigenic glycoproteins Neuraminidase (NA) and Hemagglutinin(HA); parts of virus which are recognized by the host immune system to generate an immune response. Due to variations in HA and NA proteins, human immune system have many challenges to create immune response.
Track 4: Clinical Impact and Diagnostic Approaches
Precise and early finding of flu viral contaminations are basic for fast commencement of antiviral treatment to lessen flu related harshness and mortality both among regular plagues and pandemics. A few distinct methodologies are at present accessible for determination of flu diseases in people. These incorporate viral release in cell culture, immunofluorescence measures, nucleic corrosive enhancement tests, immunochromatography-based fast indicative tests, and so on. More current symptomatic methodologies are being created to conquer the constraints related with a portion of the traditional identification strategies.
Track 5: Stature of Influenza Vaccine
Flu jabs, Flu shots or commonly known as influenza vaccine protect against influenza infection. The viral structure changes very rapidly, hence the vaccine is prepared twice a year, but the effectiveness of vaccine varies from year to year. According to CDC, vaccination helps in reducing the deaths, sickness, hospitalizations etc. effect of vaccine on children younger than 2 years and on individuals above 65 years is still unknown due to lack of research
Track 6: Anti-influenza drugs
Antiviral drugs are effective only if they are given at early stages, it can help inn reducing the risk of severe complications. Many viruses are capable of developing resistance against these drugs which lead to loss in efficacy of drugs. A vast range of drugs is available now against influenza, but it is not in clinical use yet. The anti-influenza drugs target the viral components as they are not subject to genetic variation. Side effects of these anti-viral drugs still remain as a disadvantage.
Track 7: Monitoring and Regulation
In influenza virus, a continuous antigenic drift is observed. To overcome this, vaccines have to be designed periodically for wild type of influenza viruses along with the different emerging strains of the virus which are found in the particular season. Pandemic preparedness which can occur from antigenic shifts
Track 8: Zoonotic diseases
Infections which are transmitted to humans through animals are known as zoonotic diseases. Above 60% of the diseases which we are infected are zoonotic. The diseases range from mild such as stomach illnesses to fatal such as rabies. Many of the illness are due to contaminated food materials, especially of animal origin food like meat which is consumed raw or not cooked properly. Influenza, the H1N1 strain is also zoonotic. The origin of these diseases is mostly animals but eventually gets transferred to humans.
Track 9: Emerging zoonotic diseases
Many factors are responsible for the emergence of zoonotic diseases which include environment associated with the pathogens and their hosts that act as their reservoirs. The factors responsible for these are farming practices modernization, destruction of habitat, climate change and human encroachment. Increase in emergence of zoonotic diseases around the globe has resulted in increased recognition of emergence of the disease. With the help of new technologies, sensitivity and the scope of the detection and diagnostic ability is expanded. Although this is true, but the pathogen may go unrecognized if there is no substantial outbreak of the disease.
Track 10: Case study of various zoonotic diseases
Numerous zoonotic illnesses are anything but difficult to treat or counteract yet in creating countries particularly general wellbeing frameworks are not all around arranged for observing, diagnosing and treating these sicknesses. Fundamental cleanliness is a critical method to lessen dangers, particularly in circumstances where individuals and creatures come into close contact. This incorporates commercial centers, homesteads, zoos and – on account of dangers from pets – in the home. Seekers and shoppers of bramble meat may likewise be at higher dangers Journalists who cover zoonotic maladies should take care to be precisely when writing about danger. Stories recognizing with infection are of extraordinary enthusiasm to the general population subsequently writers should dependably pass on the data. Many zoonotic diseases are exceptionally basic in nature, yet to a great degree uncommon.
Track 11: Molecular biology of zoonotic diseases
The human pathogens that are currently in the healthcare concern and are originated from wild or domestic animals before they are adapted in humans. Pathogens that have the ability to infect various hosts are commonly seen emerging in human population. Therefore it is necessary to understand the genetic variation in the viruses which are capable of circulating in both humans and animals to understand cross species transmission of the diseases.
Track 12: Veterinary science
Zoonotic diseases can be transferred from animals to humans and hence both the veterinary and medical communities should work hand in hand for research, public and healthcare setting. For public health, surveillance of human and animal health is necessary for tracking and preventing zoonotic diseases. Comparative medicine which is a study of disease processes in different species including human and different animals can be carried out by medical research team and they should promote the study of zoonotic host-agent interactions. Comparative medicine can help in improvisation of prevention and control strategies of Zoonotic diseases.
Track 13: Tracking and preventing Zoonotic diseases
Zoonotic diseases are transferred to humans from animals. It is necessary to take preventive measures to avoid these diseases. This can be achieved by observing the activity of zoonotic diseases in the animals. Monitoring the animals will help in aiming the prevention and control measures for minimizing the impacts of zoonotic diseases on health.
Track 14: Global Zoonotic Disease Surveillance
Regular assessment and updating of the disease is necessary as it can help in finding the best procedures which can help against the zoonotic diseases. A new zoonotic disease can probably emerge from any animal which can be infected or which can remain as a reservoir for zoonotic disease. This has led to the development of the new disease surveillance system that gives best response in spreading the awareness about specific kinds of threats.
Track 15: Industry Analysis
The worldwide flu vaccine market is generally immaculate and can possibly treat any significant episode. The flu vaccine market in the US is the biggest market universally on account of its strong underlying forces and scope of development in the area. The development elements of the market incorporate increment in frequency of H1N1 episodes, rising spending on open social insurance programs, development of the market in rising economies, raising maturing populace and increment in spending on medications and human services consumption. The worldwide flu vaccine market is drifting with improvement of new medications, utilization of new innovations, ascend in FDA endorsements, and increment in productivity rate of flu immunizations, blasting open private organization and developing mindfulness. Be that as it may, the market development will be impeded by complex improvement and creation process, vague process for presentation of new immunizations and high R&D costs.
Track 16: Entrepreneurs in Public Health Care
Increase in livestock diseases and increasing populations has resulted in growth of market. Awareness about vaccination has escalated, but the consequence is higher costs of storage of vaccine has opened gates for many new ideas thus making a way for new entrepreneurs
Track 17: Public Awareness
Public awareness about zoonotic diseases is very important. Awareness can be brought about by gathering the challenges that various healthcare professionals undergo while treating or diagnosing a disease. To understand this, diagnostic dilemma which is associated with zoonotic diseases must be explained properly to the critical audiences. Health care professionals can reach to critical audiences through newspapers, emails, postings, street plays, which can inform them about the preparation during the lambing, calving and the kidding season. Along with these education about agricultural safety practices, may lead in prevention of diseases rather than implying management during crises.
