    What, they claim Russia is behind in medical equipment manufacturing? If that is what they claim, then they are beyond stupid.

    Like all nations - Russia is ahead in some fields and behind of some too. But Russia is not shut down country and hospitals can still afford to buy foreign equipment if domestic is lacking. What is not to understand?

    Scientists create modified fullerene capable of fighting HIV

    Scientists believe that the results of their research will enable the creation of antiviral fullerene-based medications with great prospects

    MOSCOW, March 28. /TASS/. Researchers from the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technologies (Skoltech), the Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics RAS, M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU), and Rega Institute for Medical Research KU Leuven (Belgium) produced new substances based on fullerene with one showing pronounced antiviral activity against the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and others, Skoltech’s press office announced. The study’s results were published in the journal, Organics & Biomolecular Chemistry.

    "Previously, we had developed methods to synthesize substances with bonds of C-C, C-S, C-N, and C-P between the fullerene frame and organic functional groups. Water-soluble compounds synthesized according to our methods have a broad range of biological activities including antiviral, antitumor, and neuron-protecting properties," commented Skoltech Professor Pavel Troshin, who is one of the study’s authors, at the Institute’s Center for Electrochemical Energy Storage.

    Carbon atoms can be bound to each other in different ways yielding various modifications, for instance, graphite, diamond, or graphene. One of the modifications is fullerene where carbon atoms form closed frame structures. A ball-shaped molecule consisting of 60 carbon atoms looks very similar to a football.

    The fullerene molecules are hydrophobic, hence, making them soluble in water, several ionic functional groups (the molecular fragments) should be attached which change fullerene’s properties. The addition of functional groups to fullerene is a challenge for organic chemists. In this study, the researchers decided to begin not with fullerene, but rather with chloro-fullerene which includes 6 chlorine atoms apart from the carbon frame and which can be easily produced from the original fullerene. By substituting chlorine atoms with functional groups, various fullerene derivatives with different features including antiviral activity can be produced.

    "The biological impact of compounds markedly depends on the type of bond between the carbon frame and functional groups. This is what motivated us to focus on the synthesis and investigate a principally new group of substances where the functional groups are bound to the carbon frame by means of C-O bonds. When studying the interaction of chloro-fullerene C60Cl6 with alcohols, we discovered several new reactions enabling the production of various classes of compounds with added alcohol and hydroxyacids fragments. In the research performed by our colleagues from the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium, the water-soluble derivative of fullerene with five residuals of 3-hydroxypropane acid demonstrated pronounced inhibiting activity toward HIV," Professor Troshin noted.

    Scientists believe that the results of their research will enable the creation of antiviral fullerene-based medications with great prospects and launch them on to the pharmaceutical market in the future.

    Rostec Presents Modernized Robotic Nurse

    Concern Tecmash (part of Rostec) has presented the first sample of modernized Angel automated diagnostic and therapeutic system for human life support at the BIOTECHMED forum. The robot can perform new diagnostic functions, and it also became less heavy and more compact.
    The robotic nurse is to provide medical care during primary diagnostics, automated control over vital functions of an injured person, and to ensure invasive administration of prescribed drugs in accordance with a specific algorithm. Currently, the Angel diagnostic systems are already used by EMERCOM of Russia and several regional medical institutions.

    Modernization of the system considerably increased Angel's diagnostic capability. It will be able to record a synthesized 12-lead electrocardiogram and decipher it, measure respiration characteristics, conduct non-invasive cardiac output monitoring, and add height, weight and sex of a patient and data from an electronic stethoscope. The complex can transfer all these data via telecommunication channels and select a mobile network operator with the strongest signal. The system became even more compact after the modernization. Its weight was reduced from 22 kg to 8 kg.

    Angel uses the data to diagnose traumatic and burn shock, intoxication, head injuries, radiation sickness, hemorrhagic shock, acute cerebrovascular accident, hypo- and hyperglycemic coma, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) of adults, bronchial asthma, arrhythmogenic disorders of cardiac functions, septic and cardiogenic shock, pulmonary thromboembolism, and acute coronary syndrome.

    "High-tech developments used in healthcare, including Angel, ensure higher quality of medical care provided for the population, and its availability. Functions of the system combine the competences of several medical professionals specializing in relevant spheres, which is of critical importance when there is a lack of doctors. For instance, during man-made disasters and in an emergency, in remote residential areas or when a patient is transported," says Executive Director of Rostec Oleg Yevtushenko.

    The BIOTECHMED forum is held in Gelendzhik from September 9 through September 11, 2018. It is a combination of an academic conference (in terms of giving experts an opportunity to exchange opinions) and a display area to provide for relevant and objective assessment of industry development prospects and making informed decisions. BIOTECHMED aims to make market participants interested in synergy to ensure transition to medicine of new generation and to form common understanding of problems, tasks and opportunities. The conference will be attended by more than 1,500 representatives of the business and academic community of Russia and other countries.

    Concern Tecmash was established in 2011. Concern Tecmash specializes in the development and production of ammunition supplies for the combat capabilities of the main strike forces of the Armed Forces. Highly effective modern weapons produced by Tecmash are used by the armed forces of more than 100 countries. Key activities of Tecmash include development and production of multiple launch rocket systems, small-caliber ammunition for ground forces, the Navy and the Air Force, engineer ammunition, aerial bombs, RPG, melee weapons, field and naval artillery, explosives, etc. Civilian products include fuel for the fuel and energy complex, industrial and medical coolers, agricultural machinery and concumer goods. Vladimir Lepin is Director General of Tecmash.

    Putin hails Russia’s growing pharmaceutical industry

    The president visited the Geropharm company in St. Petersburg, which produces biotechnology medicines

    ST. PETERSBURG, November 16. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin is satisfied with the development of domestic technologies that facilitate the production of effective medicines to treat serious diseases, as he himself said during a visit to the Geropharm company in St. Petersburg.

    "I am very pleased to find out that the company was established from scratch. It is very impressive that its founders succeeded in recruiting experts, taking the first steps, launching an industrial production division and eventually acquiring a significant position on the market," Putin said, welcoming the company’s plans to expand production and reach foreign markets.

    The president pointed out that the visit to the insulin producer was dedicated to World Diabetes Day marked on November 15. He noted that about 4.5 mln people in Russia suffered from diabetes. "Plans are that the plant will produce enough insulin to meet our country’s demand," Putin said.

    "Improving the people’s quality of life and increasing life expectancy is one of the country’s top priorities, as everything must be based on people’s needs, including our national projects," the Russian president stressed. "People nowadays can combat diseases, even the most dangerous ones, thanks to cutting-edge technologies and new generations of drugs, as science - and biotechnology in particular - has been rapidly advancing," he noted.

    The president also said that advanced technologies made it possible to greatly increase the number of people saved from serious diseases. In this regard, he pointed to the growth of Russia’s pharmaceutical industry. "In the past six years, nearly 3,000 Russian medicines have been registered, which fully meet quality and safety criteria," Putin said.
