On behalf of ISANH International and ISANH Middle East, it is a great pleasure to announce the organization of ISANH Middle East Antioxidants World Congress which will be held in Beirut, Lebanon, on May 3-4, 2017.

The aim of this international congress is to gather all stakeholders in antioxidants field and their impact on nutrition and health. Participants will majority come from Middle East, Africa, Europe & Asia to discuss about some strategic axes during ISANH Middle East 2017.

Beirut Antioxidants 2017 congress will be dedicated to different targets:

  • Antioxidants & Oxidative Stress in health and medicine
  • Antioxidants & functional ingredients used in food & beverage industry
  • Practical applications of antioxidants in cosmetic industry
  • Dietary Supplements in Middle East

Antioxidants and Oxidative Stress in Health & Medicine

On the first part, the scientific committee will allocate time to discuss about oxidative stress and chronic diseases. We will present the recent advances and discuss how to decrease and modulate oxidative stress related diseases such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, infertility…

Clinical studies will be selected to present the subtle effects of antioxidants on health.

Antioxidants & Medical Food: Toward the personalization of medicine

During this session, the scientific committee will present the antioxidants in medical food for diabetes & obesity, cancer, ageing, neurodegenerative diseases and also specific medical food for babies and seniors.

Antioxidants & Functional ingredients in food and beverage

We cannot talk about beneficial effects of antioxidants without presenting how to formulate and use natural antioxidants.

During this session, we will answer the following questions:

  • How to use antioxidants to prevent food & beverage oxidation?
  • How to use antioxidants as antiomicrobial, natural conservators, antibacterial actor?
  • How to decrease glycation and Maillard Reaction?
  • How to decrease acrylamide formation?

A debate will be organized on the strategic theme: Natural vs synthetic antioxidants: bioavailability, toxicity and impact on gut microbiota.

A special session is dedicated to the valorization of natural sources of antioxidants, industrial byproducts as well as functional ingredients in the Middle East.

Practical Applications of Antioxidants in Cosmetic Industries

During this session we will discuss about the new trends in scientific research regarding the antioxidants in the cosmetic field. As for example:

  • Antioxidant strategies to delay skin ageing 
  • Targeting skin mitochondria: A promising strategy
  • How to increase skin antioxidant defense system?
  • Antioxidants to treat dermatologic disorders
  • Antioxidant and skin bioavailability: Recent advances and future vision

Dietary Supplements in the Middle East

Many antioxidants are used in many dietary supplements formulations to prevent diseases. The aim of session is to discuss about the recent advances, clinical studies, regulation and marketing of antioxidants in dietary supplements.

The status and regulation of dietary supplements in Europe is completely different than in Middle East. 

A round table discussion will be organized to discuss and how to harmonize the European and Middle East regulation?

We invite you to join us at the upcoming 13th International Conference on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases and related neurological disorders. The groundbreaking series of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Diseases Conferences attract international medical and scientific professionals worldwide. The Conference is at the forefront of unraveling the mechanisms and improving the treatment of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other related neurodegenerative diseases. AD/PDTM Conferences uniquely combine distinct neurodegenerative diseases in one setting and examine their similarities and differences; a strong focus is mechanisms of disease, prevention and therapy.

The forthcoming AD/PDTM meeting, in 2017 will take place in Vienna, Austria, one of the most classical cities in Europe.
The continuing success of the AD/PDTM meetings is the result of several key ingredients:​
  1. A high-quality scientific program covering most recent research, developments, and treatments, with emphasis on overlaps and congruent results among AD, PD and related neurological disorders.
  2. A multidisciplinary mix of participants representing both clinical investigators and basic scientists; as well as both established investigators and young upcoming talents.
  3. An International Scientific Advisory Board covering a broad range of expertise in AD, PD and related neurological disorders.
  4. A concerted attempt to provide an ambiance at the Conference that encourages interaction, exchange of ideas and networking opportunities among all participants.
  5. Travel grants and various awards to junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students, intended to encourage attendance by young scientists at the Conference.​​​​​
The remarkable success of the series of AD/PDTM Conferences is evident from the progressive increases from one congress to the next, in the number of participants to 3,152 in Nice in 2015, the number of countries represented to 81 in Nice, and the ratio of individuals below the age of 35 to that of the rest of the group. At AD/PDTM 2017 in Vienna we anticipate an attendance of more than 3500 participants.
The reason for this success is the uniqueness of the AD/PDTM meetings, their academic quality combined with the interactive and collegial environment. We believe that there is no other Conference in the world that presents such a high level of science in a condensed manner on one hand, yet on the other hand, provides an enormously comfortable atmosphere in which to enjoy it all.
We invite you to join us at the 13th International Conference on AD and PD, and we hope to welcome you in the Spring of 2017, in beautiful Vienna.
