Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of the brain that affects people worldwide. It is characterized by recurrent seizures, which are brief episodes of involuntary movement that may involve a part of the body (partial) or the entire body (generalized), and are sometimes accompanied by loss of consciousness and control of bowel or bladder function. Approximately 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy, making it one of the most common neurological diseases globally.

Nearly 80% of the people with epilepsy live in low- and middle-income countries. People with epilepsy respond to treatment approximately 70% of the time. About three fourths of people with epilepsy living in low- and middle- income countries do not get the treatment they need. In many parts of the world, people with epilepsy and their families suffer from stigma and discrimination. Of total medical costs Epilepsy alone results in an estimated annual cost of $15.5 billion.

 This session is an effort to address all areas related to Epilepsy and includes overview of Epilepsy in developing brain, Epileptogenesis, Genomics, Etiology and its Epidemiology, Translational research and its clinical aspects along with Epilepsy drug market. And our meeting include sessions which explain how the Epileptic networks and Neuronal circuits wired in the “normal” brain are essential to determine how a fault in this wiring leads to chronic seizures.
