Conference Highlights 

About the subject

Pediatric gastroenterology developed as a sub-specialty of pediatrics and gastroenterology. It is concerned with treating the gastrointestinal tract, liver and pancreas of children from infancy until the age of eighteen. The principal diseases associated with it are acute diarrhea, persistent vomiting, gastritis, and problems with the development of the gastric tract.

Pediatric gastroenterology has reached great heights in North America and Europe. It began with the speciality of pediatrics, which was developed along with children’s hospitals in the 19th century. The concept of specialists concentrating on organ specific specialties started around the same time. Dr. Samuel Gee contributed to the development of the specialty in London with his focus on serious clinical conditions in children remarkably celiac disease and cyclic vomiting syndrome.

Who can participate?

  • Nutritionists
  • Pediatricians

  • Hepatologists




Track 01: Pediatric Gastrointestinal Problems | Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences | Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Functional gastrointestinal issues are common with grievances of stomach pain. Children with such issues suffer with frequent pain in the middle abdomen. When the pain or discomfort of the abdomen is suppressed by the bowel movements or stooling, the condition is said to be Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Symptoms of IBS include weight loss, blood in the stool, a family history of IBS and many more. Medication or treatment for such disorders depend based on the symptoms. There are even non-drug medicines, like, dietary changes, counselling, use of probiotics, relaxation techniques etc. Apart from abdominal pain, other GI disorders include:


Celiac Disease

Lactose Intolerance


Vomiting and regurgitation

Colic and Gas

Infections and Motor diseases

Peptic ulcers

Track 02: Gastrointestinal Manifestations in Autoimmune Diseases | Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Everybody experiences a stomach upset or abdominal pain from time to time. But, if the problem persists for a longer time or occurs frequently, it could be a sign of something critical. Many individuals have at least one immune system related digestive disorders, commonly termed as gastrointestinal related autoimmune disorders which are conditions that occur when the immune system of the body wrongly attacks a part of the gastrointestinal tract. Most of these are generally normal, and certainly not rare conditions. Some of them that are commonly observed in children are:

Autoimmune hepatitis

Celiac disease

Type 1 diabetes

Systemic vasculitis

Wegener granulomatosis

Churg-Strauss syndrome

Collagen vascular diseases

Track 03: Genetics in Gastroenterology | Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Various gastrointestinal disorders are acquired or have a hereditary predisposition engaged with disease expression. Latest research has revealed the genes that are responsible for the cause of these diseases. A few conditions now have genetic testing available for finding asymptomatic members of the family or to diagnose. Although, certain genes have been related with different infections, the development of the condition is not completely understood. 

Congenital GI anomalies

Inherited colon cancer syndromes

Juvenile polyposis

Hereditary hemochromatosis

Polycystic liver disease

Track 04: Pediatric Hepatology | Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Pediatric liver diseases are not very common. Hepatitis is more common in children. Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C are the major causes of liver cancer. These liver disorders could be due to drug overdose, genetic or metabolic disorders, impaired drug metabolism or damage to the pancreas or biliary duct caused by infection, bleeding, obstruction or cancer. Other liver disorders include jaundice, fatty liver disease, liver cirrhosis and many more.

Cholestatic liver disease

Viral hepatitis

Crigler-Najjar syndrome

Track 05: Pediatric Pancreatic Disorders Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

There are numerous inherited or genetically acquired pancreatic disorders in children. Depending on the condition acquired, side effects may develop at any time from birth to adulthood. More than 25 diverse digestive enzymes which are secreted into the digestive tract to separate dietary protein, fat and starches into simple molecules are made by the pancreas. These simple molecules later het absorbed into the body. Maximum reserve capacity of the pancreas must be lost before the pancreas fail and symptoms of swelling and malabsorption develop. Children suffering with GI issues due to pancreas failure need to enzyme replacement therapy.

Cystic fibrosis


Schwachman Diamond syndrome

Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction (SOD)

Gallstone disease


Annular pancreas

Track 06: Pediatric Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopic methodology has turned to be a fundamental methodology for assessment and treatment of GI ailments. The areas covered under GI endoscopy include signs for indicative and helpful esophagogastroduodenoscopy and ileocolonoscopy; endoscopy for foreign body ingestion and corrosive ingestion, upper and lower gastrointestinal bleeding; endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and endoscopic ultrasonography.

Track 11: Microbiome of GIT | Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

The intestinal microbiota is a complete collection of bacteria and microbes within the gastrointestinal tract. The GIT contains tens of trillions of microbes, including a wide range of species, the majority belonging to the phyla Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes. The microbiome of the gut contains approximately 3 million genes that are unique. The microbes and the GIT share a symbiotic relationship between each other. The microbes help to get energy from food and synthesis of vitamins and amino acids, thereby offering protection from pathogens. Damage to the intestinal microbiota homeostasis is found to be associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), celiac disease, food allergies, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, cancer, obesity, and cardiovascular disease.

Track 12: Therapeutic Management of GI Complaints | Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Gastrointestinal complaints or otherwise called symptoms  are common medical conditions that include stomach upset, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, gas in the GI tract, or changes in bowel habits (e.g., diarrhea, constipation).

Gastrointestinal problems occur when the mucous membrane of the digestive tract is inflamed, irritated and infected. Vomiting, diarrhea, aches and fever may accompany gastrointestinal problems. Common causes of gastrointestinal problems are viruses, food-borne illness Gastrointestinal problems may last from one day to more than a week, depending on the cause.

Some common symptoms of GI diseases are:

Difficulty in stool movement, Irregular bowel habits, Rectal bleeding, Fistula, Stomach cramps, Flatulence, Incontinence, Hemorrhoids, Diverticulitis. There are some GI diseases that are asymptomatic.

GI disease is diagnosed by the following tests:

·         Ultrasound – A probe is inserted in your anal area to see if the nerves respond and if there are scar tissues around the area.

·         X-Ray – It is helpful when  you want to spot signs of malformations.

·         MRI – A more in-depth look at the inside of your body.

·         Colonoscopy or Endoscopy – A probe is inserted either through your mouth or via the anus, depending on where the possible problem lies. The camera then takes note of any irregularities in the passage so that the doctor can make the diagnosis.

Treatment of GI diseases depends on the type of gastrointestinal disease. Some of the treatment methods are:

·         Antibiotics – to prevent the infection from spreading.

·         Surgery – to remove the problem or to implant a device that helps your body cope with the disease.

·         Diet – Intake of foods that give your body the essential nutrients to fight the disease.

Track 13: Nutrition in Gastrointestinal Infections | Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is essentially in charge of acquiring and digesting food, retaining supplements and water, and removing wastes from the body through defecation. A proper diet and functioning GI tract are necessary for the delivery of supplements, prevention of nutritional deficiencies and repair of damaged intestinal epithelium. Although both the supplements and non-nutritional segments of diet are essential to the health of GIT, they additionally might cause or show impact on the GI pathology. A perfect diet plan may profoundly affect intestinal recuperation and management of interminable or serious GI sickness.

Track 14: Trends to Shape the Future of Gastroenterology | Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

The gastroenterologist of the future will face great changes in the scope and delivery of health care, driven by significant economic and demographic pressures, social trends, and technological innovations and scientific advances.

The changing economics of health care is a major driver of change. Because health care costs have been rising at unsustainable rates for businesses and families, payers and consumers are increasingly demanding demonstrable transparency, quality, and value. In addition, rising consumerism and competition within the health care system will demand that gastroenterologists add demonstrable value to health care through differentiation of skills, innovation, and demonstrable quality, defined as both traditional measures of morbidity and mortality and through measures of patient access and satisfaction as well as cost efficiency.

Future gastroenterologists will have substantial opportunities to add health care value because advances in genetics, proteomics, and related fields hold the promise of improved disease prevention and targeted pharmacologic interventions. Advances in information technology, imaging, and endoscopy will make data increasingly available and will facilitate improved disease diagnosis and management. Gastroenterologists will play important roles in both clinical arenas, providing advanced endoscopic procedures and managing broad-based health care teams caring for individuals with complex gastrointestinal (GI) problems, and in management areas, such as creating and administering wellness programs that address costly chronic diseases such as alcohol abuse, obesity, and other common problems.

Track 16: Neonatal and Pediatrics Nutrition Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Pediatrics is the branch of medication that incorporates the therapeutic care of newborn children, kids, and young people. Neonatology is a branch of pediatrics that deals with the premature or ill infants. The new-born infants who are suffering from low birth weight, congenital malformations, sepsis, pulmonary hypoplasia, birth asphyxias and prematurity are treated in consideration. Practicing physician in the area of neonatology is referred as neonatologist and Pediatrics is referred as pediatrician.

Track 17: Pediatric Parental Nutrition Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Safe, long-term parenteral nutrition was first inculcated new-born by the starting 1972. Since that time, it has subsidized vitally to the survival of many children around the world. Soon the new changes in the parenteral nutrition, however, it added a serious problem associated with it. Uniqueness in the characteristics of the neonatal has added to the implementation of the pediatrics nutrition in itself.

Track 18: Malnutrition in Children Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Malnutrition or malnourishment is a condition that results from eating a diet lacking in nutrients. Malnutrition in children is especially harmful. The damage to physical and cognitive development during the first two years of a child’s life is largely irreversible. Malnutrition also leads to poor school performance, which can result in future income reduction. Adults who were undernourished as children are at risk of developing diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular issues.

Track 19: Pediatric Diet Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

These diets provide adequate nutrition for the child of any developmental age and will aid in establishing good eating habits.: These diets are based on the basic food groups with considerations of the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) for age. Food group quantities may be divided to include between-meal snacks. The age of the child will determine consistency and amount of foods to be eaten. Education, with the support of the health care community, combined with health policy and environmental change to support optimal nutrition and physical activity, are central to this health strategy.

Track 20: Breast Feeding | Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Breastfeeding, also known as nurturing, is the feeding of babies and young children with milk from a woman's breast. Breastfeeding is the normal way of providing young infants with the nutrients they need for strong growth and progress. Colostrum, the yellowish, sticky breast milk produced at the end of pregnancy, is suggested as the perfect food for the new born. Breastfeeding has a number of reimbursements to both mother and baby.

Track 21: Baby Feeding Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Baby food is any soft, easily consumed food, other than breastmilk or infant formula, that is made specifically for babies, roughly between the ages of four to six months and two years. The food comes in multiple varieties and tastes. Baby food can be given when the child is developmentally ready to eat. Signs of readiness include the ability to sit without help, loss of tongue thrust, and the display of active interest in food that others are eating.

Track 22: Probiotics Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Probiotics are living bacteria and yeasts that are good for our health, especially to your digestive system. Probiotics are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they aid to keep your body healthy. We can also found them in some diets and supplements. When you lose "good" bacteria in your build with probiotics can support substituting them. They can help balance your "good" and "bad" bacteria to have infants body working like it should be.

Track 23: Infantcy Diseases | Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Diseases of infants present at birth developing within the first month of birth. Childhood disease and disorder, any illness, impairment, or abnormal condition that affects primarily infants and children. Childhood is a period characterized by change, both in the child and in the instant environment. Changes in the child linked to growth and progress are so striking that it is almost as if the child were a series of distinct yet connected individuals passing through infancy, childhood, and adolescence.

Track 24: Pediatric Food Allegry | Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

Food allergy is becoming a serious problem around the world, with an estimated 6–8% of youngsters affected at a connected age childhood. It is significant to recognize that the nutritional implications include not only the elimination of essential food from the diet.   Clinical awareness is required among health professionals as to the clinical characteristics, epidemiology, study, and supervision of food allergic disorders, as is the inclusion of a dietician as part of the allergy team. The food intake by the children with the unhygienic dietary interference can be an integral part of the allergy consultation.

Track 25: Pediatric Disorder Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

The categorized problems associated with the permanent or temporary diseases of a new born infant at the time of birth or the diseases developed within a span of first month after the birth. It may be included as the hereditary diseases or the diseases caused when the child is exposed to the environment, the pediatric disorder, illness, impairment or any abnormal condition that can affect the child in a primarily way should be cured in with in a stipulated time. The disorder should be treated with in a small amount of time so that the child born will not be affected by any kind of disorder in the coming future.

Track 26: Pediatric Nutrition Meeting Gastroenterology Conferences | Gastroenterology Events Gastroenterology Meetings | Gastroenterology 2018 | Hepatology Conferences Hepatitis Conferences | Nutrition Conferences

The aim of the study of Pediatrics nutrition meeting is to reduce infancy of deaths, control the spread of communicable sickness, promote healthy routines for a long aseptic life and help ease the problems of offspring and youths. It can be acknowledged that this can be reached by learning the primary subject on General Pediatrics. General Pediatrics includes the basic treatments involved for the betterment of pediatric health. The most significant problems can be due to nutritional insufficiencies to the overall health of infancy because growth and development can be seriously hindered by shortages in essential vitamins or nutrients.


Market Analysis

Pediatric gastroenterology is a branch of medicine concerned with treating the gastrointestinal tract, liver and pancreas of children from infancy until age eighteen. The principal diseases that can be treated are acute diarrhea, persistent vomiting, gastritis, and problems with the development of the gastric tract.

The development of the small intestinal biopsy was of particular importance in the emergence of pediatric gastroenterology, leading to an initial focus (in Europe, Australia, and Canada) on celiac disease. The development of the small intestinal biopsy was of particular importance in the emergence of pediatric gastroenterology, leading to an initial focus (in Europe, Australia, and Canada) on celiac disease. 

However, an adult gastroenterologist, Margot Shiner, made the first report of a small intestinal biopsy in a child with celiac disease. The 7-yr-old child, she reported, had a flat small intestinal mucosa. It ushered in a whole new era, and from that time on many papers began to appear describing small intestinal mucosal lesions in children in a wide range of disorders.

The global market of pediatric gastroenterology was valued at USD 7,281.6 Million in the year 2014. This market is expected to grow at a CAGR(Compund Annual Growth Rate) of 5.8% during the forecast period (2015–2020) to reach USD 10,209.4 Million by 2020. The growth in this market is mainly driven by the increasing prevalence of pediatric diseases owing to the rising population; increasing use of products in healthcare; and technological improvements in modern techniques. However, the presence of stringent regulations for process approval and medication errors associated with diagnosis may restrain the growth of the market during the forecast period.

It is estimated that through 2027, the GI sector is likely to increase at a 4.7 CAGR. Across product types, multispecialty centers were leading in the market with 65 percent market share in 2017.North America is likely to lead the market through 2027.Factors driving growth include a growing drive to lower healthcare costs and more Medicare spending on ASCs.vv
