Anti-aging meet to focus on technologies

Dubai, October 7, 2009

Emerging revolutionary technology will be the highlight of an upcoming conference on anti-aging and aesthetic medicine in Dubai.

The second Dubai Congress on Anti-Aging and Aesthetic Medicine (DCAAAM) will be held on November 8 and 9 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

DCAAAM is held in association with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M), which has a membership of more than 20,000 physicians and scientists from 90 countries.

“The event will include cutting-edge research and products, much of it not seen before in the Gulf,” said Robert Goldman, chairman of A4M.

“Exhibitors will cover every area of anti-aging from lab technology, medical suppliers, cosmetic surgery clinics, fitness and weight-loss companies to supplements and nutrition products,” he added.

“The latest breakthroughs in anti-aging medicine lie within the arena of regenerative medicine, which applies advanced biomedical technologies for the purposes of renewing body tissues to peak function for prolonged periods of time,” Goldman continued.

“Key subjects in regenerative medicine include stem cell therapeutics, genetic engineering and genomics, nanotechnology and therapeutic cloning.”

Kuwait-based Bader Sultan & Brothers Company (BSBC) – a leader in the field of medical services and supplies since 1960, representing more than 200 international firms in the region – is the Platinum sponsor of DCAAAM 2009.

BSBC will be showcasing its extensive world-class range of plastic-derma and wellness products.

“This event will enable us to interact with healthcare professionals throughout the world and enlarge our dimensions to provide a healthier lifestyle to the people in the Middle East,” said Emad Al Zaben, general manager of BSBC.

He added: “BSBC will be assisted by top internationally acclaimed medical experts who will conduct workshops at the congress.”

In addition, it will also be organising a seminar with celebrity doctors on the latest trends in the cosmetic field.

Exhibitor Metametrix, a pioneer in the development of metabolic, toxicant and nutritional testing, will be attending the Congress this year to introduce its latest diagnostic programmes.

“Attending DCAAAM will give us the opportunity to introduce our latest technology to the Middle East,” said Dr J Alexander Bralley, CEO Metametrix.

“Metametrix continues to develop innovative testing profiles with ‘Next Generation Technology’ to further advance treatment options for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, inflammatory, mental/emotional, and autism spectrum disorders,” he added.

RegenLab from Switzerland will make its debut at DCAAAM 2009, a company at the forefront in the preparation of platelets rich plasma, used in both the aesthetic industry for skin rejuvenation and for surgical procedures to foster the healing process.

The market for anti-aging products in the combined geographic region of the Middle East (including the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Kuwait, Iran, Iraq and Syria) and Africa stood at $4.41 billion in 2007, says a report by US industry analysts Global Industry of San Jose.

Furthermore, the report states that the market is growing at a compounded annual rate of 7.78 per cent over the period 2001-2010, and is projected to rise to $5.58 billion by 2010. – TradeArabia News Service
