Anti-aging medicine is now leading buzzword in biomedical technologies BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Thousands of the world's preeminent physicians and researchers in aging intervention convene 12-15 December 2013 at The Venetian Resort & Exposition Center (Las Vegas, NV USA) to showcase advanced anti-aging and regenerative biomedical technologies from across the globe. Representatives from 65 countries will attend, including health ministers and sports federation officials from China, Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brazil.

After 22 years, anti-aging medicine is now the leading buzzword in biomedical technologies. The field attracts Wall Street and Silicon Valley moguls--most notably, Larry Page, 40-year-old CEO of Google, who recently launched Calico, a biotech company with a mission to combat aging and aging-associated diseases.

"Anti-aging medicine is the new Internet of healthcare. As the antithesis to Obamacare, anti-aging medicine saves countless lives and increases both lifespans and healthspans," says Dr. Ronald Klatz, President of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M; www.worldhealth.net & www.a4m.com). "Preceding the establishment of A4M in 1991, the global anti-aging market stood at zero dollars. Valued at $250 billion in 2012, and projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5.7%, analysts at BCC Research expect the industry to top $345 billion in 2018," observes A4M Chairman Dr. Robert Goldman.

At the A4M's World Congress on Anti-Aging Medicine, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will receive the Infinity Award, the highest honor bestowed by the A4M, a non-profit scientific medical society of 26,000 physician and scientific members from 120 nations. A4M bestows this award to Gov. Schwarzenegger to recognize his early leadership role in securing landmark funding in the area of stem cell research, piloting an initiative to direct $3 billion in government funds to the field. In addition, the Infinity Award recognizes Gov. Schwarzenegger's lifetime of accomplishments as a champion bodybuilder, Hollywood action hero, successful businessman, environmentalist, philanthropist, best-selling author, and California's 38th Governor. He is also the founder of the non-profit organization R20: Regions of Climate Action and the USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy, which is devoted to seeking bipartisan solutions to public policy issues.

Actress, author, and health advocate Suzanne Somers will present evidence to demonstrate the wide-ranging health benefits of natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Thanks to the educational efforts of both the A4M and Ms. Somers, BHRT is now widely considered a safe and effective therapy for maintaining youthful metabolism, physical health, mental and emotional wellness, and vitality at any age.

ER physician and host of the Emmy award-winning talk show, "The Doctors," Travis Stork, MD will share insights to empower patients to achieve "Your Best Life." Gynecologist Judith Reichman, MD will present evidence to help "Slow Your Clock Down," based on approaches to combat aging as seen on her public television series "Straight Talk on Menopause."

Complementing the appearances of these celebrities are over 80 medical and scientific experts speaking on diverse facets of the science of aging intervention, to include: - Massimo Dominici, MD, Professor in Oncology & Hematology at the University of Modena (Italy), will review "Stem Cells: Understanding Aging as a Platform to Enhance Tissue Regeneration" - Christoph Westphal, MD, PhD, Board of Fellows for Harvard Medical School, will share "Pharmaceutical Approaches to Treating Aging: The Sirtris Story" - Michael Murphy, PhD, Group leader at the MRC Dunn Human Nutrition Unit (United Kingdom), will present "The Development of Mitochondria-Targeted Therapies for Age-Associated Diseases" - Abraham Morgentaler, MD, FACS, Clinical Professor at Harvard Medical School, will present the latest evidence for "Testosterone Therapy in Men."
