Track 2: Device-Related Infections

Medical devices are responsible for a large proportion of nosocomial infections, mainly in critically ill patients. The infections associated with the devices can cause significant medical and economic sequela. The bacterial colonization of the indwelling device may be a prelude to both the infection and the malfunction of the device. The pathogenesis of the infections associated with the devices is centred on the multifaceted interaction of microbial, device and hosts factors.

Track 7: Microbial Biofilms

Microbial biofilms develop when microorganisms irreversibly adhere to a submerged surface and produce extracellular polymers that facilitate adhesion and provide a structural matrix. The Surface may be an inert, non-living or living tissue. Microorganisms may originate from the skin of patients or health workers, from tap water to which ports of entry are exposed, or from other sources in the environment. To better understand and control biofilms on permanent medical devices, researchers must develop reliable sampling and measurement techniques, study the role of biofilms in antimicrobial resistance, and to establish the link between biofilm contamination and infection of the patient.

Track 8: Emerging Infectious Diseases

Emerging infectious diseases are caused by newly recognized species or strains (such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, HIV / AIDS) that may have evolved from a known infection (such as influenza) or spread to a new population (Such as West Nile fever) or undergoing ecological transformation (such as Lyme disease) or re-emerging infections, such as drug-resistant tuberculosis. Nosocomial infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus are emerging in hospitals and are extremely difficult to treat as they are resistant to many antibiotics. Many emerging diseases are zoonotic - an animal reservoir incubates the body with only intermittent transmission in human populations.

Track 9: Antibiotics and Antimicrobial Use

Antibiotics are one of the most important therapeutic discoveries in the history of medicine. They have revolutionized the way we treat patients with infections and help reduce mortality and morbidity. Unfortunately, antibiotics are more likely to be misused. They are often unnecessarily prescribed for viral infections, against which they have no effect. Not only antibiotics, other antivirals and antimicrobials are losing their effectiveness due to their irrational use and causing antimicrobial resistance.

Track 10: Microbial pathogenesis and Antimicrobial Resistance

Microbial Pathogenesis reviews about the molecular and cellular mechanisms of infectious diseases. It covers microbiology, host-pathogen interaction and immunology related to infectious agents. Antimicrobial resistance refers to the natural ability of microbes to evolve genetically to counter medications. The misuse of antibiotics leads to the appearance and selection of resistant bacteria. Now the whole world is facing situation where infected patients cannot be treated effectively because the responsible bacterium is totally resistant to the antibiotics available.

Track 11: Infection Prevention and Control

Infection control concerns the prevention of nosocomial and healthcare acquired infections. These infections are often caused by violations of infection control practices and procedures, contaminated and non-sterile surfaces or by sick hospital staff. It requires an integrated approach, a follow-up program that includes the following key elements as limiting the transmission of organisms between patients in direct patient care through hand washing and the use of appropriate gloves and aseptic practice, strategies for isolation, sterilization and disinfection practices, and nutrition and immunization, limiting the risk of endogenous infections minimizing invasive procedures and promoting optimal use of antimicrobials, infection surveillance, Identification and control of epidemics, prevention of infection among staff members, strengthening of patient care practices and continuous training of staff.

Track 12: Epidemiology and Public Health

Epidemiology is the "who, what, when, and where" of infectious diseases. The agents are transmitted through the air, food, insects, and some spread through person to person. Some agents occur worldwide, and others only in certain geographic areas or ecological circumstances. Every life form built its own profile vital. It is essential to discover the emergence of "new" diseases. Epidemiology helps develop the methodology to be used in clinical research studies, and  to a lesser extent, basic research in the biological sciences. Epidemiological studies involve an introduction, all the historical background, sources of surveillance data, laboratory diagnosis, the biological characteristics of the organism, mechanisms and routes of transmission, pathogenesis and immunity response the host, and finally the prevention, control and treatment. Epidemiologists with the help of the study design, data collection and statistical analysis of data, as well as the interpretation and dissemination of results that include peer review and the occasional systematic review. In this, they help implement and evaluate interventions at individual and community level

  • To prevent infection (primary prevention)
  • To prevent the development of disease (secondary prevention) and also
  • To prevent death and disability (tertiary prevention) associated with the disease

Track 13: Opportunistic Infections

Opportunistic infection is an infection caused by pathogens like bacteria, viruses, fungi or protozoa that take advantage of an opportunity that is not normally available such as a host with a weakened immune system, a modified micro biota (like disturbed Intestinal flora) or violated the integumentary barriers. Many of these pathogens do not cause disease in a healthy host that is a normal immune system. However, a compromised immune system, penetrating injury or lack of competition from normal commensals presents an opportunity for the pathogen to infect.

Track 14: Therapeutic Approaches

Nosocomial infections are a major challenge for patient safety. Empirical antibiotic therapy should be based on thorough clinical evaluation and local epidemiological data on potential pathogens and susceptibility to antibiotics. The chosen therapy must be effective, limit the toxicity and be the narrowest spectrum possible. The choice of parenteral, oral or topical antibiotic formulations is made on the basis of clinical presentation (site and severity of infection).

Track 15: Vaccines and Immunization

A vaccine is a biological product that provides active acquired immunity to a particular disease

A vaccination is the injection of a killed or weakened organism that produces immunity against particular organism in the body.

Immunization is the process by which a person or animal is protected from disease. Vaccines cause immunization, and there are also some diseases that cause immunization after a person recovers from the disease.

Nosocomial infections (NI) or hospital acquired infections (HAI) are one of the major complications for health care professionals to tackle. Every day, NI results in prolonged hospital stays, long-term disability, and increased resistance of microorganisms to antimicrobials, massive additional costs for health systems, high costs for patients and their family, and unnecessary deaths. NI represents the most frequent adverse event during care delivery and no institution or country can claim to have solved the problem yet. Based on data from a number of countries, it can be estimated that each year, hundreds of millions of patients around the world are affected by NI.

Why Las Vegas, USA?

Las Vegas is the most populous city in Nevada, the seat of Clark County, and an internationally renowned major resort city for shopping and fine dining. Las Vegas, which bills itself as The Entertainment Capital of the World, is famous for the number of casino resorts and associated entertainment. A growing retirement and family city, it is the 28th most populous city in the United States.

The major attractions in Las Vegas are the casinos and the hotels. The most famous hotel casinos are located on Las Vegas Boulevard on the portion of that road known as the Las Vegas Strip. These larger casinos are located outside of the city. Many of these hotels are massive, providing thousands of rooms, with their large adjoining casino areas. There are many hotel casinos in the city's downtown area as well, which was the focal point of the city's gaming industry in its early days. Several large hotels and casinos are also located somewhat off the Strip, as well as in the county around the city.

Some of the most notable casinos involved in downtown gaming are on the Fremont Street Experience which was granted variances to allow bars to be closer together, similar to the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego.

Market Analysis:

Nosocomial and Healthcare-associated infections (NHAI) are the infections patients can get while receiving medical treatment in a healthcare facility–are a major, yet often preventable, threat to patient safety. Together with health care and public health partners, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working to bring increased attention to NHAI and prevention. Although significant progress has made in preventing some infection types, there is much more work to be done. On any given day, about one in 25 hospital patients has at least one healthcare-associated infection.

CDC’s annual National and State Healthcare-Associated Infections Progress Report (HAI Progress Report) describes national and state progress in preventing HAIs. Among national acute care hospitals, the most recent report (2014 data, published 2016) found:

  • 50 percent decrease in central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI) between 2008 and 2014
  • No change in overall catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) between 2009 and 2014
    • However, there was progress in non-ICU settings between 2009 and 2014, progress in all settings between 2013 and 2014, and even more progress in all settings towards the end of 2014
  • 17 percent decrease in surgical site infections (SSI) related to the 10 select procedures tracked in previous reports
    • 17 percent decrease in abdominal hysterectomy SSI between 2008 and 2014
    • 2 percent decrease in colon surgery SSI between 2008 and 2014
  • 8 percent decrease in hospital-onset Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) infections between 2011 and 2014
  • 13 percent decrease in hospital-onset methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteremia (bloodstream infections) between 2011 and 2014

The report also includes a national snapshot of HAIs in long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs) and inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs).

  • Long-Term Acute Care Hospitals: 9 percent decrease in Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections (CLABSI) and an 11 percent decrease in Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTIs) between 2013 and 2014
  • Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities: 14 percent decrease in CAUTI between 2013 and 2014

In 2014, results of a project known as the HAI Prevalence Survey were published. The Survey described the burden of HAIs in U.S. hospitals, and reported that, in 2011, there were an estimated 722,000 HAIs in U.S. acute care hospitals.

Additionally, about 75,000 patients with NIs died during their hospitalizations. More than half of all HAIs occurred outside of the intensive care unit. Steps can be taken to control and prevent HAIs in a variety of settings. Research shows that when healthcare facilities, care teams, and individual doctors and nurses, are aware of infection problems and take specific steps to prevent them, rates of some targeted HAIs (e.g., CLABSI) can decrease by more than 70 percent. Preventing HAIs is possible, but it will take a conscious effort of everyone–clinicians, healthcare facilities and systems, public health, quality improvement groups, and the federal government–working together toward improving care, protecting patients, and saving lives.

Conference Series invites all the participants from all over the world to attend “International Congress on Nosocomial and Healthcare associated Infections” (NHAI 2017) scheduled during October 02-04, 2017 in Las Vegas, USA. Nosocomial Infections 2017 brings together the global leaders in Nosocomial Infections and Healthcare to present their research at this exclusive scientific program. The Nosocomial Infections conference hosting presentations from editors of prominent refereed journals, renowned and active investigators and decision makers in the field of infectious diseases, immunology, microbiology, infection prevention and infection control. Nosocomial Infections 2017 Organizing Committee also invites young investigators at every career stage to submit abstracts reporting their latest scientific findings in oral and poster sessions.

Nosocomial Infections (NIs) or Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs) are a major complication for professionals of health care to tackle. Every day, NIs results in longer hospital stays, long-term disability, and increasing the resistance of microorganisms to antimicrobials, additional massive costs to health care systems, high costs for patients and their families, and unnecessary deaths. Prevention and infection control is needed to prevent transmission of infectious diseases in all health care settings. Infection prevention and control demands a basic understanding of the epidemiology of diseases, risk factors that increase patient susceptibility to infection, and the practices, procedures and treatments that may result in infections. The risk of acquiring Nosocomial infections is related to the mode of transmission of the infectious agent (e.g. Clostridium difficile -CDI, Surgical Site Infections-SSI, Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriacae -CRE, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus-MRSA, etc.) and the type of patient-care activity or procedure being performed and the underlying patient’s host defences.

The conference attains significance when we look at the Data and Statistics of Nosocomial Infections (NIs) or Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) by Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) .In 2014, the results of a project known as HAI Prevalence Survey were published. The survey describes the burden of nosocomial infections in US hospitals, and reported that in 2011 there were about 722,000 NIs in US acute care hospitals. In addition, approximately 75,000 patients with NIs died during their hospitalization. More than half of all hospital infections took place outside the intensive care unit.
