The German Federal Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Economics of the Northern Province of Mecklenburg - Vorpommern cordially invite you to attend a workshop informing about best healthcare practices and diabetes management from Germany. The workshop is organized at the occasion of the Arab Health 2012 on Monday, 23 January 2012 at 4.00 PM at the Shangri-La Hotel (Sheikh Zayed Road), Arjawan+Yasmin (1st floor) in Dubai.

About 366 million people worldwide are suffering from diabetes. The diabetes rate in the UAE is among the highest in the world with currently 19.2%. The Emirate of Abu Dhabi alone is spending more than AED 1 billion per year to treat diabetes and diseases connected with it.

Diabetes treatment programs have started worldwide and focus on prevention and personalized, evidence-based treatment, utilizing clinical practice guidelines and innovative technologies in diabetes care. Germany has strong expertise in the field of diabetes treatment and flagship projects like the Personalized Diabetes Management System of the Institute of Applied Diabetes Research Karlsburg (KADIS) are internationally groundbreaking.

The “German – Arab Workshop to Combat Diabetes – Experiences and Telematic Innovations” aims to inform healthcare professionals from the UAE and Gulf region about best practices from Germany and is designed to be an interactive exchange among local and international healthcare experts to show solutions for the effective treatment of a growing number of diabetes patients.

After the workshop you are cordially invited to join us for a networking reception in the foyer.

The seminar will cover the following topics:
• Worldwide Epidemic of Diabetes Mellitus: Challenge for Healthcare Authorities
• The Challenge of Diabetes Mellitus in Arabic Countries
• Cardiac and Vascular Complications of Chronic Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
• New Approaches to Treatment and Perspectives for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Im Focus: OU astrophysicist and collaborators find supermassive black holes in quasar nearest Earth

A University of Oklahoma astrophysicist and his Chinese collaborator have found two supermassive black holes in Markarian 231, the nearest quasar to Earth, using observations from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.

The discovery of two supermassive black holes--one larger one and a second, smaller one--are evidence of a binary black hole and suggests that supermassive...

Im Focus: What would a tsunami in the Mediterranean look like?

A team of European researchers have developed a model to simulate the impact of tsunamis generated by earthquakes and applied it to the Eastern Mediterranean. The results show how tsunami waves could hit and inundate coastal areas in southern Italy and Greece. The study is published today (27 August) in Ocean Science, an open access journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).

Though not as frequent as in the Pacific and Indian oceans, tsunamis also occur in the Mediterranean, mainly due to earthquakes generated when the African...

Im Focus: Self-healing landscape: landslides after earthquake

In mountainous regions earthquakes often cause strong landslides, which can be exacerbated by heavy rain. However, after an initial increase, the frequency of these mass wasting events, often enormous and dangerous, declines, in fact independently of meteorological events and aftershocks.

These new findings are presented by a German-Franco-Japanese team of geoscientists in the current issue of the journal Geology, under the lead of the GFZ...

Im Focus: FIC Proteins Send Bacteria Into Hibernation

Bacteria do not cease to amaze us with their survival strategies. A research team from the University of Basel's Biozentrum has now discovered how bacteria enter a sleep mode using a so-called FIC toxin. In the current issue of “Cell Reports”, the scientists describe the mechanism of action and also explain why their discovery provides new insights into the evolution of pathogens.

For many poisons there are antidotes which neutralize their toxic effect. Toxin-antitoxin systems in bacteria work in a similar manner: As long as a cell...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer IPA develops prototype of intelligent care cart

It comes when called, bringing care utensils with it and recording how they are used: Fraunhofer IPA is developing an intelligent care cart that provides care staff with physical and informational support in their day-to-day work. The scientists at Fraunhofer IPA have now completed a first prototype. In doing so, they are continuing in their efforts to improve working conditions in the care sector and are developing solutions designed to address the challenges of demographic change.

Technical assistance systems can improve the difficult working conditions in residential nursing homes and hospitals by helping the staff in their work and...
