Welcome to Oman Redox 2019 Congress

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the International Society of Antioxidants in Nutrition and Health in the Middle-East (ISANH - ME) and the Scientiifc Committee, we are pleased to announce the 21st ISANH Redox Congress, the 4th ISANH-ME Congress 2019 will be held at the Sultan Qaboos of Muscat, Oman, on March 4-6, 2019.

Oman will host three days conference dedicated to three Hot Topics: 

Session 1: Redox, Health & Medicine

- Oxidative stress & antioxidants recent advances in Health and Medicine.

- Antioxidants and oxidative stress in cardiovascular diseases, metabolic syndrome, obesity, hyperlipidemia and diabetes. Innovations in the Middle East.

In this session the impact of oxidative stress, antioxidants and natural ingredients in diseases and in health will be treated. A special insight will be dedicated to recent advances in this field, clinical studies will be selected to present the subtle effects of antioxidants on health.

Session 2: Antioxidants and Bioactive Molecules in Food Waste Valorization: A New Challenge for the Middle East

The aim of this session is to highlight our knowledge in the food waste valorization processes and to encourage all stakeholders in the food waste field in the Middle East to participate in order to put in place a regional task force for an innovative initiative aiming towards a reliable plan for better food waste and byproducts management and valorization.

Food waste valorization practices have gained much attention lately as a means of sustainable management, which can increase the profit for local economies. The value of food waste is associated with their content in dietary fibers and several bioactive molecules which can be capitalized in the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and nutraceutical industries. So far, these materials constitute an underexploited source for the recovery and production of natural compounds for food and other multiple industrial applications especially in the Middle East where more than one trillion dollars’ worth of food are wasted each year. Middle East nations are acknowledged as being the world’s top food wasters.

Session 3: First Microbiota & Metabolic Syndrome Middle East conference

During this session, we will try to answer many questions, among them: 

- Can we modulate the quality and diversity of human microbiota?

- What are the strategic mediators of gut microbiota?

- What is the influence of gut microbiota on the development and progression of chronic diseases?

Abstract submissions for consideration of potential inclusion as oral or poster presentation are welcome for all these topics.

With this exciting program, we look forward to welcoming you at the Sultan Qaboos University in Muscat, Oman next March.
