The Latest Developments in Bioelectronic Medicine: Bioelectronic Medicine Forum

A high number of chronic diseases is influenced by the nervous system. Activating or blocking peripheral nerves affects a lot of physiological functions – an effect that can be utilized for therapeutic treatment. At the Bioelectronic Medicine Forum in New York brings together scientific and practical experts who will discuss the present status in the development of new therapies in this field.

Electrical stimulation of nerves as a therapeutic way to treat diseases is an attractive alternative to pharmaceuticals which in many cases cannot help or cannot help any more. This option gets even more interesting especially because the development of new pharmaceuticals has stagnated in the past years.

Bioelectronic medicine can address many medical problems which could not be treated in a sufficient way so far like or example chronic and acute inflammatory diseases such as Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis or Lupus. Latest scientific findings increasingly indicate a positive therapeutic influence of bioelectronic therapies on clinical pictures like diabetes, hypertension, paralyses or maybe even cancer.

The Bioelectronic Medicine Forum is organized by Neurotech Reports with support of the Feinstein Institute. At the conference taking place on Thursday, March 22, at the Millenium Broadway Hotel CEO Dr. Jörn Rickert is presenting CorTec’s work on interfaces to the peripheral nervous system.
