    So recommended price is about $70 US dollars.... or $700,000 if it ever reaches the west...

    Pretty good price for something that will only be used when it is needed... ie sick patients in hospital that already have covid would use this... $70 to inject this and quickly free up a bed is good value for money...

    Mir-19 medication effective against all coronavirus strains, Russian official says, 16/11/2021.

    Phase one clinical trials had confirmed that the nasal form of the medication was well-tolerated, Head of Russia’s Federal Medical-Biological Agency Veronika Skvortsova notes.

    MOSCOW, November 16. /TASS/. The Mir-19 anti-coronavirus drug is capable of blocking the viral replication site so it is effective against all virus strains, Head of Russia’s Federal Medical-Biological Agency (FMBA) Veronika Skvortsova told the Rossiya-24 TV channel on Tuesday.

    "A medication has been developed that is capable of blocking the replication site of the SARS-Cov-2 virus. The replication site is crucial for the virus, not only for some particular strain but for the entire SARS-Cov-2 lineage, which is why it is a universal solution," she pointed out.

    Skvortsova noted that phase one clinical trials had confirmed that the nasal form of the medication was well-tolerated. "The drug is safe for humans as it only impacts the virus and not the entire body. It is a highly specific aetiotropic antiviral drug," she stressed.

    The Mir-19 medication, designed to prevent and treat coronavirus, is suitable for inhalation and nasal administration. It halts virus replication and prevents the most severe forms of the infection, as well as pneumonitis and the acute respiratory distress syndrome that the infection causes.

    Russian Exporters Hold Talks During Medical Exhibition in Germany, 22/11/2021.

    Moscow (Sputnik) – Russian exporters of medical equipment held more than 200 meetings to discuss more than $36 million of products at the largest international medical exhibition Medica 2021 in Düsseldorf, the Russian Export Centre (part of VEB.RF Group) reported.

    “From 15 to 18 November the largest international medical exhibition Medica 2021 was held in Düsseldorf, Germany. With the support of REC, 22 Russian companies producing medical products took part in the exhibition. On average, the business potential of one meeting amounted to $172 thousand, while the overall potential of the meetings amounted to more than $36 million,” the REC informed.

    REC traditionally organises targeted meetings with potential buyers for each exporter. “After four days of work of Russian exposition, a total of 207 business meetings have been held at the exhibition,” the REC added.

    As a result of targeted meetings, Russian companies concluded contracts and signed agreements on the delivery of their products to foreign markets. For example, Triton Electronic Systems LTD has signed a supplement to the contract for the amount of 945 thousand euros for the supply of multi-gas monitors. The contract provides for the supply of AMG-06 Anesthesia monitors to EU countries and worldwide through a global European distributor.

    Arrangements have also been made for the future deliveries of intensive care and resuscitation equipment worth 3 million euros over the next two years. Intensive care and resuscitation equipment of Triton Electronic Systems LTD is already supplied to 40 countries. LLC “Medical Biological Union” and the company “First Med” from Egypt have also signed an agreement on delivery of laboratory diagnostic kits, test materials for haematological analysers and standard serum panels to the Egyptian market. LLC “Razvitie” has concluded contracts with Sandor Medicaid’s Pvt. Ltd from India and Echo Medical Supplies from Jordan. Details of the agreement (volumes of deliveries) are under discussion between the parties concerned.

    The same documents have been signed by LLC “Potok Inter” and Sana Klinik Service GmbH (Germany).

    Russian vaccine exports exceeded $ 1 billion, a record since the 1990s, 11.12.2021.

    In October, Russia shipped abroad a record amount of "other vaccines for humans" - almost as it did all summer. Since the beginning of the year, the export of the main "vaccine code", which has grown sharply since the start of shipments of "Sputnik V", has exceeded $ 1.2 billion.

    For ten months of this year, Russian exports of "other vaccines for people" (according to the classification code of the commodity nomenclature of foreign economic activity 3002200009) in value terms amounted to more than $ 1.2 billion (608.6 tons in physical terms), follows from the data of the Federal Customs Service (FCS ) analyzed by RBC. Shipments of these vaccines jumped to $ 356 million in October, more than double the September volume. The October result is a record in the entire history of Russia since the early 1990s. Previously, the export of vaccines for humans, even in annual terms, never exceeded $ 71 million (export for 12 months of 2020).

    The global economy is a political farce. Perhaps the safest vaccine making a a small fraction of the money that Pfizer and Moderna's
    crapcines are still making. Over 50 billion US as far as I can tell based on their profits.

    Ministry of health of Russia registers MIR 19, new drug for treatment of COVID-19, 22.12.2021.

    The drug is used by inhalation, and can be applied to combat any variant of the coronavirus. After tests, no side effects were identified in patients.

    On Wednesday (22), the Russian Ministry of Health registered the drug MIR 19 for the treatment of COVID-19, developed at the Institute of Immunology of the Federal Biomedical Agency (FMBA).

    "The Ministry of Health of Russia has registered the Mir 19 drug for the treatment of the new coronavirus infection, developed on behalf of the head of the FMBA of Russia, Veronika Skvortsova, at the Institute of Immunology of the state Research Center of the FMBA of Russia," the FMBA statement says.

    The drug acts at the gene level, that is, selectively suppressing the activity of vital RNA sequences of the virus, without affecting the human genome.

    The institute also noted that the remedy, which use happens by inhalation in a hospital environment, is universal against any variant of the coronavirus.

    In addition, its safety and effectiveness have been proven. "In this regard, the development of adverse reactions in patients was not detected," the press office of the Institute specified.

    Scientists from Russia managed to create liquid medical pectin for the first time in the world #Биология and Medicine Yesterday at 16:21 284 0 Pectin, an incredibly useful substance found in fruits. It can be used for the prevention and treatment of many diseases, and such formidable as heart and oncological diseases. Pectin helps cleanse the body of harmful substances like salts of heavy metals, radionuclides, cholesterol and so on. Researchers from the State University "Dubna" together with colleagues from scientific organizations have developed the world's first industrial method for obtaining liquid medical pectin. According to them, the product developed using their technology is highly effective and can be used to prevent and treat many diseases. This was reported by the press service of the State University "Dubna". According to experts, the use of this natural thickener and a strong detoxifier significantly reduces the risk of heart and cancer, cleanses the body of harmful substances, such as salts of heavy metals, radionuclides, cholesterol and so on. Special highly purified pectins are used for the production of healthy and special (preventive and therapeutic) nutrition products. However, in its pure and stable form, it is very difficult to obtain it, since the additives of stabilizers and acids used to extract pectin from fruits reduce its beneficial properties, including the ability to "absorb" toxins. To solve this problem, scientists have developed a special technology for obtaining pectin, which is based on the rejection of the use of chemical reagents. And the product is obtained in liquid, not powder form. "By controlling the processes of pectin release at the cellular level with the help of innovative equipment made of chemically inactive materials, we obtained the highest quality product from different types of fruits. The process is completely based on resource-saving and waste-free technology. The rejection of chemical reagents made it possible to preserve the macromolecules of pectin, which, thanks to the liquid "format" of the product, form a three-dimensional network that further increases the detox effect, "said Raisa Gorshkova, a professor at dubna State University. At the heart of the pectin macromolecule are the carboxyl groups of galacturonic acid. Most of these groups are "free," which allows pectin to effectively bind and remove harmful substances from the body. On an industrial scale, pectin substances are obtained mainly from apple and citrus squeezes, sugar beet pulp, sunflower baskets, pumpkin.

    Implants on a 3D printer: how wounded soldiers are replaced with limbs in the Burdenko hospital

    Russian military doctors have introduced a new unique method for the complete restoration of limbs after mine-explosive and gunshot wounds. Now they are being carried out to some participants of the special operation, who were seriously injured in the battles. At the moment, no one has such technology, except for specialists from the Burdenko Main Military Clinical Hospital.

    On the operating table is a fighter who received a heavy gunshot mine-explosive wound. Lost a fragment of bone and skin. In the main military hospital of the country, they figured out how to help the patient with the help of 3D technologies and stem cells.

    An artificial implant was developed, which is now being implanted into the body of the operated person. The process is long and meticulous. The main thing is not to miss anything. Such an operation can last more than 11 hours. It all depends on the nature of the injury.

    A patient from the special military operation zone was taken to the hospital two weeks ago. From the foot, doctors say, there is practically nothing left. But in a short time, experienced surgeons managed to completely restore the limb. With a positive result of treatment, the victim will return to duty after 4 months.

    The operation is divided into two stages. The first one takes place entirely in the laboratory. Using the patient's genetic material, doctors recreate a lost limb that is connected to an implant made on a 3D printer.

       “The technique for replacing 3D defects in ordinary fractures is already in place. However, with gunshot defects, no one has ever used this. We are the first,” said the head of the operating department of the Main Military Hospital named after. N.N. Burdenko Igor Khomenets.

    The Burdenko Hospital was the first to use this technology. Doctors believe that it should become a breakthrough in military medicine.

       “Previously, such technologies were used only in foreign versions. But today we have been able to replace this technology, improve and improve it," - Deputy Head of the Main Military Hospital. N.N. Burdenko on research work Leonid Brizhan.

    Military doctors have already performed more than twenty successful limb replacement surgeries using 3D modeling. Some of their patients returned to perform combat missions in the special operation zone. ■

    That is amazing... essentially losing a foot and being back to "work" in four months!!!

    For people who don't have feet or arms... this is ground breaking stuff whether they lost of from injury or never had it because of a birth defect or disease or other cause... this is fantastic news.

    This looks like Pfizermectin is coming to Russia.

    Yes, that is what I thought when I read that article... but now with a bit of reflection I actually suspect it might have been part of a deal... ie you let use test patients in your country and we will let you sell some of your products in these countries... the obvious problem being deals with the west are not always properly honoured (grain deal) or not honoured at all (Minsk agreements).

    Russia should be careful.

    Wow, a breakthrough in military medicine

    Hope the reality matches the hype. If we can see some photos sometime then we can judge for ourselves

    Reminded me of what I read about the great Russian surgeon, Nikolai Pirogov, during the Crimean War. May we see a similar revolution in battlefield treatment now. Auto-translation from Wikipedia:

    In the 40-50s. the controversy of the Eastern Question sharply escalated. In October 1853, the Ottoman Empire declared war on Russia. On November 18, 1853, in the Turkish port of Sinop, the squadron of the Black Sea Fleet of Vice Admiral Pavel Stepanovich Nakhimov (1802-1855) utterly defeated the Turkish fleet. At the beginning of the Crimean War, on November 6, 1854, Pirogov, together with a group of doctors and nurses he led, left St. Petersburg for the theater of operations. Among the doctors were E. V. Kade, P. A. Khlebnikov, A. L. Obermiller, L. A. Beckers, V. I. Tarasov, Doctor of Medicine, and Pirogov’s faithful assistant, paramedic I. Kalashnikov. The nurses, in whose training Pirogov took part, represented the Exaltation of the Cross community of sisters of mercy, which had just been established on the initiative of Grand Duchess Elena Pavlovna. Pirogov was the chief surgeon of the city of Sevastopol besieged by the Anglo-French troops.

    Operating on the wounded, Pirogov for the first time in the history of Russian medicine used a plaster cast, giving rise to a savings tactic for treating limb injuries and saving many soldiers and officers from amputation. During the siege of Sevastopol, Pirogov supervised the training and work of the sisters of the Exaltation of the Cross Community of Sisters of Mercy. He divided them into four groups: dressings, pharmacists, housewives, as well as transport sisters who accompanied the wounded to the hospital. This was an innovation at the time. In addition, the sisters were engaged in cleaning, cooking and supervising the quartermasters. Of the 250 sisters of mercy who worked in Sevastopol, 17 died from injuries and illnesses. Pirogov wrote about the unprecedented activities of the sisters of the Exaltation of the Cross community and in memory of their feat "Historical review of the actions of the sisters of the Exaltation of the Cross in care of the wounded and sick in military hospitals in the Crimea and Kherson province from December 1, 1854 to December 1, 1856".

    The most important merit of Pirogov was the introduction of triage in Sevastopol - a method of sorting the wounded, first introduced in the Napoleonic army by military surgeon Dominique Jean Larrey. Pirogov, for the first time in Russia, proposed to distribute the wounded according to severity into five categories: 1) hopeless and mortally wounded; 2) seriously and dangerously wounded, requiring urgent assistance; 3) severe, capable of surviving delivery to the hospital after providing primary care; 4) to be sent to the hospital and 5) lightly wounded, who are assisted on the spot (applying a light bandage or removing a superficially sitting bullet). From this sorting, the entire medical and evacuation service of the Russian army subsequently grew. With great difficulty, Pirogov managed to organize the work of military transport teams with horses and comfortable carts, which made it possible to quickly deliver the wounded to the hospital. Therefore, Pirogov is justly considered the founder of a special area in surgery, known as military field surgery.

    For merits in helping the wounded and sick during this war, Pirogov was awarded the Order of St. Stanislav, 1st degree.
