    Russian Medical Development: News

    Post  KomissarBojanchev on Sat Oct 04, 2014 9:00 am

    Surprisingly nothing has been spoken here about what medical technology russia is developing and I can't find anything. Everything medical related is being spearheaded apparently by american, japanese, and some west EU universities. Is it because there is none? Sad

    Anyway if you can find links post them here.

    I think it is of paramount technology for russia to have completely indigenous medicines and technologies in order to free themselves from Bigpharma and  western GMO medicines. It should also develop where western medical corporations block progress due to being a threat to their market share.

    The USSR had an excellent medical development and healthcare program directed for all social classes, unlike only the bourgoisie like in the west. Everything went to hell when privatisation occured. Lets hope russia can still be heir to USSR's great medical legacy.

    Unfortunately one thing that i've found disturbing in most east european countries(including russia and my own) is the obsession with alternative treatment with herbal and spiritual medicine. We have the widespread belief that some siberian weeds or ritual  is far superior than all modern medicine. This type of thinking has in the impediment of medical progress in russia as well as creating easy scams. Lets hope russians and east europe will become more enlightened in the future.

    i readed ~3 years ago about russia's pharma industry, it indeed only covers a part of internal market, and russia is indeed a pharma importer and not a pharma exporter, i will try to look at it again some time soon

    and having a more or less good healtcare and doctors doesnt have anything to do with healtcare/pharma industry, for medical devolopment you dont need doctors, you need chemists and bioengineers + world class R&D facilities

    Keep in mind a lot of the wests medical development is contributed by russian emmigrants. So russia should hurry to massively improve its R&D facilities.

    thats easy to say, most of the stuff used ther needs to be importet also, for world class R&D you need sensetive and critical equipment that is used in such laboratories that only i few countrys produce.

    and you cant make everything, you can't just "jump in beetwen" a long year research for a whatever lets say "new" cancer threatment pill, everything needs year long groundwork befor you even start a project.
    we need to concentrate onthe things we do good now and are actaully producing and slowly expand on the things we can do to at least more or less be able to sate our own internal market. but ther is nothing even close to a "umbrella corporation" (see what i did ther pirat ) in russia that will domante the "global market"

    actaully bayer seems to be investing quite good in the russian market!! i know they have a strong foot in russia, i will look later if they might have already build producing facilieties in russia for pharmacutical production

    Drug companies spend enormous amounts on developments and charge enormous amounts for their products, often when cheap natural alternatives with fewer side effects exist.

    It is not about health... it is about making money... they are worse than Lawyers and Used Car Salesmen and Politicians.

    Actually I take that back.

    Since I said this I have seen a documentary on western drug companies and the vast majority of their money is spent on marketing and bribes and they spend very little on actual development.

    Most governments around the world spend rather more on developing new drugs than drug companies.

    Share of Russian medical drugs on domestic market up to 28%

    MOSCOW, August 29. /TASS/. The share of Russian manufacturers of medical drugs on the domestic market this year has been up to 28%, Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov told the Rossiya-24 television news channel in an interview.

    "This year the segment of Russian producers on the market of pharmaceuticals has grown to nearly 28%," he said.

    Russia registers most effective drug for Ebola – Putin

    Russia has registered a new Ebola drug that appears to be more effective than all of the other medicines currently being used to treat the disease, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced during a meeting with the Cabinet.

    “We have registered a medicine for the Ebola fever that, after a series of tests, demonstrates high effectiveness. Its effectiveness is higher than that of those remedies that are used in the world up to now,” the Russian president said, as quoted by TASS.

    Russia has developed and registered two separate Ebola vaccines, both of which surpass their counterparts in effectiveness, with one of the medicines designed specifically for people with immunodeficiency, Russian Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova said during the meeting.

    “In December, Russia registered two Ebola fever vaccines, which were developed by the Gamaleya Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences and tested in cooperation with the Health and Defense ministries,” Skvotsova said, as quoted by TASS.

    “One of the vaccines is absolutely unique and has no analogues in the world. It provides 100 percent immunity to the disease,” she added, stressing that the second vaccine for people with immunodeficiency also surpasses its British counterpart in efficiency.

    According to the minister, the west-African country of Guinea, where the latest outbreak of the disease took place, has already addressed Russia, asking for its help in dispensing the new medicines on its territory “in the coming months.”

    Vladimir Putin has already authorized the health and foreign ministries to begin work with the African side. He also expressed gratitude to “the scientists and all specialists that worked on the project” and congratulated them on their success, calling it “a major step forward in fighting infectious diseases,” as reported by TASS.

    The registration documents for the new vaccine were filed in late December as the cure was passing the final stages of clinical testing. Olga Golodets, Deputy Prime Minister for Social Policy, announced earlier that the new Ebola medicine had been successfully tested on people.

    In the meantime, several other Ebola vaccines have been developed and tested in countries affected by the epidemic. One of them was created by the Merck, a US company, and tested by the World Health Organization (WHO) in Guinea last year, with preliminary results demonstrating a high rate of effectiveness after testing more than 4000 patients, ABC News reported.

    Another vaccine designed for people with immunodeficiency has been developed in the UK.

    An outbreak of the Ebola fever started in December of 2013, spreading from Guinea to neighboring Liberia and Sierra Leone. The epidemic claimed the lives of 11,000 people in these three countries, with 28.000 infected with the deadly virus.

    The WHO is soon expected to declare an end to Africa’s Ebola epidemic, as it has been 42 days since the region’s last registered Ebola case, which is longer than the virus’ 21-day incubation period, ABC News reports.

    From the Communists

    https://www.rt.com/politics/333482-communist-mps-urge-putin-to/

    A group of Communist Party lawmakers are calling on President Vladimir Putin to halt the current healthcare reforms because market-oriented optimization could allegedly boost mortality rates and lead to violations of basic Human Rights.

    The letter was signed by 50 lower house MPs, including the head of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Gennadiy Zyuganov. Its main provisions are based on the 2015 Audit Chamber report that listed a number of serious negative effects of the healthcare reforms that were launched in Russia several years ago.

    In particular, the authors of the petition point to the mass personnel cuts in medical institutions that are being held “without any prior planning or consideration of the capabilities of those who remain.”

    The reported growth in the average salary in the medical sphere has been achieved not through the growth of wage rates, but through the seriously increased work load for the average worker, the authors of the letter noted. At the same time, the quality and availability of medical services have not yet improved, they added.

    According to official plans, by 2018 the Health Ministry intends to close 11.2 percent of hospitals and 7.2 percent of all clinics and dispensaries.

    At the same time, the quality and affordability of medical services are becoming worse, the Communists said in their letter. They pointed out that in some places across the country people have to travel dozens of kilometers to see a doctor or wait for up to six weeks to get an ordinary ultrasound scan. “As a result, few people, especially in villages, can receive their medications, even if these medications are sponsored from the budget. Even fewer people can afford to buy medications from their own budget,” the letter reads.

    The lawmakers noted that in 2014 the mortality rate was up by 2.2 percent compared to the previous year, and attributed this fact to the alleged failure of the reforms.

    “The optimization of the medical sphere has violated the basic Human Right of Russian citizens – the right to healthcare. The policy of cutting jobs in medical institutions and the liquidation of these institutions must be radically reconsidered,” the MPs wrote in their letter.

    In addition, the Communist lawmakers proposed that the Health Ministry consider the possibility to introduce a different payment system in the medical industry and get rid of the “unjustified gap” between the incomes of hospital directors and ordinary doctors. They also urged the authorities to introduce a type of system that would guarantee the responsibility of civil servants for the results of the various reforms they launch.

    The head of the lower house Committee for Healthcare, MP Sergey Furgal (LDPR), commented on the letter, saying that the problem it highlighted certainly existed, but could be solved without the president’s involvement. “We have already passed in the first reading the bill that forbids the closure of medical institutions without approval from ordinary citizens living in the region where this happens. We have practically stopped this process already,” Frugal told the online daily Gazeta.ru.

    He added that people in the Health Ministry also understood the problem and were looking at a number of measures to keep the negative consequences of the planned changes to a minimum.

    Earlier this month, the Communist Party of the Russian Federation approved and forwarded to the president an anti-crisis program based on the nationalization of mineral resources, a state monopoly on alcohol and tobacco, and restrictions on capital outflows. Communist leader Gennadiy Zyuganov promised that the anti-crisis proposals would form the core of the broader program prepared by his party for the next State Duma elections, due in September.

    Russia: Scientists develop molecule to speed up tissue healing

    Russian scientists have reportedly discovered a molecule that quickly regenerates damaged human tissue, presenting the work from their lab in Chelyabinsk, Friday. The medicine is based on a unique artificially produced peptide called Acegram, which has both antibacterial and antiviral effects, as well as stem cell growth stimulation.

    I have a question about the status of Healthcare in Russia, does Russia Still has universal Healthcare? is it expensive for the average Russian to get treatment for diseases/injuries? I've watched an episode of Real Russia where the host had a foot injury and he said treatment expenses for fractures is covered by the government. But then I saw this news about a young woman who needs to raise money for her cancer treatment. http://www.ntv.ru/video/1335267/

    When I googled Healthcare in Russia I also stumbled upon this propaganda(highly exaggerated?) article from bloomberg., In Putin’s Russia, Universal Health Care Is for All Who Pay
    So what is Really the state of Healthcare in Russia? is it improving? are ordinary Russians getting the adequate attention for their medical needs?
