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.
