Event Overview
Welcome message:

Epilepsy alone results in an estimated annual cost of $15.5 billion.


Our  Epileptic brain conference is assured to act as a catalyst for the advancement in Epilepsy by connecting adepts within and across disciplines under a single roof of knowledge, creating an environment conducive to information exchange, generation of new ideas and acceleration of applications to benefit the nascent research and society.


Importance and Scope:


Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of the brain that affects people of all ages. According to WHO (World Health Organization) statistics more than 50 million people were affected worldwide. It is estimated that every year nearly 2.4 million people are diagnosed with epilepsy and the population with active epilepsy is between 4 to10 per 1000 people. Nearly 80% of the individuals with epilepsy are found in developing regions. Approximately 500,000 Italians suffer from epilepsy, of which 125,000 have treatment resistant forms. Historically, the epilepsy research has been under-funded. 


Annually NIH spends $30 billion for medical research, but ½ of 1% is only spent on epilepsy research. Of total medical costs Epilepsy alone results in an estimated annual cost of $15.5 billion. In developing countries, this figure is often close to twice as high due to the higher risk of experiencing conditions which leads to permanent brain damage. The risk of premature death in people with epilepsy is two to three times higher than it is for the general population.


Target Audience:


Neurologists, Epileptologists, Pharmacists, Research scientists, Epilepsy organizations, Pharmaceutical (drug design and discovery) companies, Anti- Epileptic drug Industries, Epilepsy associations & foundations, Professors and Students from Academia interested in the study of Epilepsy.
