Track 3: Rheumatologic Disorders
The group of diseases which affects the joints, muscles and connective tissues are categorized as Rheumatic Diseases. Some Rheumatic diseases considered as autoimmune diseases in which body’s own immune system attack on the parts of the body. Approximately there are 100 types of rheumatic disorders. It includes degenerative disorders like Osteoarthritis and inflammatory condition such as rheumatoid arthritis. Some major rheumatic disorders are Ankylosing Spondylitis, Gout, Osteoporosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) characterized by the inflammation of joints, Sjogren's Syndrome and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus which is a chronic disease that affects the joints, muscles and other parts of the body and Lupus can be called as collection of autoimmune diseases in which body’s own immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks its own normal, healthy tissues. The treatment plan of Rheumatic disorders includes medication like NSAID’s, DMARD’s and Biologic etc. and regular exercise and a healthy diet with stress management. Many rheumatic diseases are chronic in nature but with effective management, many people with rheumatic diseases lead happy and satisfy lives.

Track 4: Lupus
Lupus is one of the disorders of an immune system that are chronic in nature. It is an autoimmune disease which can affect any part of the body (skin, joints or any organ inside the body). In Lupus host antibodies does not able to understand the difference between the foreign invader to the body and body’s healthy tissues and starts damaging the own healthy tissues which create inflammation. The people with lupus have many different symptoms like painful or swollen joints, extreme fatigue, dry mouth, skin rashes, fever, and kidney problems. At present, there is no cure for lupus but I can effectively manage with treatment through drugs. Lupus Foundation of America.

Track 5: Soft Tissue Rheumatism
Soft tissue rheumatism is a disease which is used to describe the group of conditions that cause due to the pain, swelling, stiffness or inflammation around the soft tissues around the joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles etc. This disease has a category of disorders include tendinitis, bursitis, tenosynovitis, Enthesitis, myofascial pain syndrome, fibromyalgia, and capsulitis. Soft tissue rheumatic disorders refer to non-articular pain; patients often attribute their symptoms to nearby joints. This disease is treated by Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and non-narcotic drugs and corticosteroids injections for relieving pain. Physical and occupational therapy is promoted for swift body movements.

Arthritis is described as a cluster of more than 100 types of different joint disorders featuring inflammation of one or more joints. There are different cause of happening arthritis include injury (leading osteoarthritis), heredity factors, autoimmune (Rheumatoid Arthritis), by the effect of infections i.e. bacterial or viral, by metabolic abnormalities such a gout and pseudo gouts and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. Arthritis causes inflammation, Joint pain, swelling, redness, joint stiffness etc. The common form of arthritis is Osteoarthritis occurs due to the daily wearing and tearing of the joint, trauma to the joint, Infection of the joints and age-related factors. Due to the wearing of cartilage, it becomes rough and the space between the bones decreases and decrement in the lubrication of joints causes friction between the bones and produce painful spurs resulting joint destruction and deformity. I t can affect larger as well as smaller bones of the body like hip, wrist, knee etc. Women are more likely to have osteoarthritis than men. According to Arthritis foundation it is the leading cause of disability in America. Arthritis can be managed effectively; physical exercise and maintaining a healthy weight helps to reduce the pressure on your joints. It is the best way to prevent from arthritis. NSAID’s, DMARD’s and corticosteroids are used in medication treatment of Arthritis, Herbal medication also a good effect on arthritis. Surgery is the end stage treatment of arthritis.

Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease(when body’s immune system attacks on its own healthy tissues) in nature which is triggered by the body’s own faulty immune system and affects the joints of the body mainly knuckles, wrist, knees, and other body parts also like including the eyes, lungs, skin, heart and blood vessels. It is a chronic Inflammatory type of disorders that affects the lining of joints and causes a pain, swelling, fever, limping, stiff joints etc. that can result in bone erosion and permanent joint destruction and deformity. The cause of RA is not completely understood. Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis JRA most common type of arthritis in children or teenagers’ causes’ persistent stiffness, swelling, joint pain. It can be fatal sometimes and leads to the serious problems such as growth problems and eye inflammations. There is no cure for RA till now but it can effectively manage the proper treatment by using pharmacological treatment using Disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs DMARDs combines with Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs NSAIDs, Injections of Glucocorticoids are highly effective, TNF-alpha inhibitors, T-cell activation inhibitors, B-cell depletes, IL-6 inhibitors, JAK inhibitors, immunosuppressant’s, and steroids. The introduction of Gene expression is a new advancement in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Another method is reconstructive surgery provides great improvements of patients with end-stage rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis is a sub-type of Arthritis and a degenerative disorder in nature caused by the trauma, aging joints, and obesity etc. It is a common chronic condition of the joints. A cartilage is a rubbery material found at the covering of the bone provides a smooth motion of between the joints and act as a cushion between the Bones. In OA cartilage breaks down which results in inflammation, pain, swelling, stiffness etc. In worse condition cartilage wears away and rubbing of bone against which results in the deformity or joint destruction. I t can affect both larger and smaller joints of the body but more often occurs in knees, hips and lower back of the body.

Rheumatic Diseases is characterized by inflammation (redness, heat, swelling, pain etc.). Some form of rheumatoid arthritis such as lupus effect the other organs of the body, a complete physical examination of heart, abdomen, lungs, nervous system, eye, ear and throats etc. is necessary. The doctor may order some test to confirm diagnosis with the help of sample like blood, synovial fluid etc. some common test that are used in diagnosis are:- Antinuclear antibody (ANA), C-reactive protein test, Complete blood count (CBC), Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (sed. rate), Rheumatoid factor, Synovial fluid examination. X-Ray techniques are also used for the diagnosis; it provides the images of bones. Some non-invasive techniques are Computed Tomography, (magnetic resonance imaging) MRI, and arthrography shows the image of whole joint. Musculoskeletal ultrasonography becoming an important diagnostic tool in RA. Clinical investigation is done with the help of Sonography. Schober's test is used in these disorders for the measurement of ability of a patient to flex his/her lower back. An Arthrogram diagnostic test is used to examine the injury in the bones, Fluoroscopy technique is used to show the clear images of the bones. There are different types of tools and techniques available such as MR arthrography test, cytopathology, sonography and low bone marrow density and its association with disease and some other measurement in rheumatoid arthritis will be discussed under this track.

Therapies for rheumatic diseases vary depending upon the type of diseases or condition. The treatment of rheumatic diseases includes Exercise: - Physical activity help to reduce the joint pain, joint stiffness and increase the flexibility and mobility of the bones, the strength of muscles and endurance. Exercise helps to reduce weight which in turn reduces the pressure on the joints. The physiotherapist plays a major role in the management of patients with rheumatic diseases and helps the patients to achieve and maintain optimal function and independence. Therapists help patients to manage pain and promote mobility and day to day activities and stay active in the home, community and leisure settings. A well-balanced diet along with the exercise helps people to manage their weight and stay healthy. Medication plays a major role in the treatment of the people with rheumatic diseases; it depends on the condition and individual. The medication does not provide a cure but limits the symptoms of the diseases prevent the progress of disease for further damage to the joint and other parts of the body. A variety of drugs used in the medication some of these is: - DMARD’S, Disease-Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drug, NSAID’s (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) and glucocorticoids, steroids etc. are generally used in the medication. Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure in Orthopedics, or total joint reconstruction is the cure at the end stage of the diseases. Advancement in the field of biologics approved for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, these genetically engineered proteins derived from human genes which play a pivotal role in fuelling inflammation, the main feature of rheumatoid arthritis.
Knee replacement treatment, immunological therapy, and chemotherapy for arthritis with the physiotherapeutic treatments, instruments, and advancement will also be discussed under this track.

8th International Conference of Orthopedic Surgeons and Rheumatology
March 22-23, 2017 Rome, Italy
ConferenceSeries Ltd is pleased to announce the commencement of the 8th International Conference of Orthopedic Surgeons and Rheumatology on March 22-23, 2017 at Italy, Rome. Theme of the conference is “Scientific colloquy on advancement in the discipline of Orthopedics and rheumatology.” The purpose of the conference is to elucidate the disease from a number of scientific aspects, present an opportunity to meet and network with renowned Rheumatologists, pharmacists and allied health professional from around the world and listen to top speakers on new development that will advance the future of Rheumatology.
The conference highlights the following topics
Rheumatology described as the study of rheumatism which focused on the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic diseases which mainly affects the joints, muscles and the connective tissues around the joints and bones. Nowadays it is a common health problem in the developing world. Around 100 different diseases have been classified within the Rheumatology. These rheumatics’ disease also links with the cardiovascular diseases such as myocardial infarction and strokes and affects the other parts of the body like lung, kidneys nervous system, skin etc. The disease Rheumatoid Arthritis affects approximately 1% of the total world population in the form of diseases. A complete understanding of the pathophysiological process underlying rheumatic diseases will initiate the development of new drugs.
Market Analysis and Case study of Rheumatic Diseases
Rheumatic’s diseases are cause behind severe long term pain and physical disabilities. According to survey in Europe 20-30 % of adults are affected at any one time. According to British Society of Rheumatology around 10 million people in UK suffer from arthritis of which almost 0.7 million have Rheumatoid Arthritis. Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis which is rheumatic disorder in the children up to the age of 16, JIA cause joints pain, swelling, warmth, tenderness and stiffness that last for at least 6 weeks. Around 12000 children in UK suffer from idiopathic disorder. According to CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), An estimated 78 million adults at the age of 18 and older will have diagnosed with arthritis by the year 2040 as compared with the 52 million adults in 2010-2012. Two third of those with arthritis will be women.
Highlighting some of the common type of Rheumatic disorders
- Out of every 1 lakh people 41 are diagnosed with RA.
- The prevalence varies between 0.3% and 1% and is more common in women and in developed countries, Hormones in both play a role in either preventing or triggering it.
- RA generally starts at the age of 30-60 and somewhat later in life in men. However RA can strike at any age-even small children can get it. Around 3 lakh children have the juvenile form of rheumatic disease.
- By the year of 2030, at least 50% of patients suffer from rheumatic diseases in developing countries are unable to hold down a full time job.
The effect of arthritis on individual is significant. About 22.7 million of the 52.5 million adults with arthritis report the restrictions in their daily work activities due to the arthritis. Functional limitations in daily work activities are common in adults with arthritis; 40% report it is “very difficult” to perform 1 of 9 important daily functional activities. Figure 1 shows the occurrence of certain functional limitations. Impairment in the ability to perform routine activities may interfere with the ability of people to work, function in their community, or care for their family.
Fig.1 Functional limitations among patients with Arthritis
Note:-Functional limitation describe very difficult to cannot do level for the activities mentioned in fig.1
Physical activity and exercise plays a major role in giving a benefit to the people with arthritis by improving pain, function and physical and mental level, many patients reports no free time for physical activities. 24% of adults with arthritis report no leisure time physical activity, a higher proportion in comparison to the adults without arthritis. (18.6%) (Age-adjusted prevalence estimates). The individuals with low level of physical activities have a risk of inactivity associated diseases like cardiovascular, diabetes and functional limitations with obesity.
Figure 2) Age- Adjusted Occurrence of Physical Inactivity* among Adults with and without Arthritis
According to the data collected from the Spanish Society for Rheumatology there was new cases of hip fracture within a 14 years period. The increment observed was mainly 64% in women in comparison to 19% in men. 13% of patients suffered from a fracture die after 3 months which rises to 38% after 2 years. 45% of patients suffer from vertebral fracture bear functional damage and 50% are bothering partial or total disability.
According to the survey of SPANISH REGISTRY OF ADVERSE EVENTS OF BIOLOGICAL THERAPIES IN RHEUMATIC DISEASES out of 6,754 patients in the hospitals in Spain 56% of those were suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis, 12% from Ankylosing Spondylitis, another 12% from Psoriatic Arthritis and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis counted to 4.9 %.
Rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA), Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), Fibromyalgia (FM) and Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) are very common among adults. The incidence and prevalence of these rheumatic diseases are high. The existence prevalence of RA in adults is 3.4 percent and it is highly associated with age. Whereas the prevalence is only one percent of adults under the age of 30 and 6.25 % in adults over the age of 70. The lifetime prevalence of rheumatic diseases at the age of 40 in women tends to be higher in comparison to men and becomes twice than as in men after the age of 70. The burden originate by Rheumatic diseases is high. Not only they impair function and quality of life but also the important cause of chronic health problems (approx. 40 percent), long-term affliction (approx. 50 percent) and short-term affliction (approx. 30 percent) compared to the other common diagnoses. The number of people with arthritis and associated diseases is projected to 67 million by 2030.

- By the year of 2030, at least 50% of patients suffer from rheumatic diseases in a developing countries are unable to hold down a full time job.
- Osteoarthritis is a kind of degenerative joint disorder and one of the ten most disabling disease in developed countries.
- The prevalence of osteoarthritis is increasing indefinitely with age. Men are more affected as compare to women among those ages of ˂45 years, whereas women are more frequently affected among those aged at ˃55 years.
- A recent study found that women who have menstruation at the age of 11 or earlier had a 9-15% higher risk of hip/knee replacement surgery as compare to adults.
- On account of worldwide estimation 9.6% of men and 18.0% of women aged over 60 years have symptomatic osteoarthritis.
