    MOSCOW, November 9 - RIA Novosti. More than 80% of injured SVO participants return to military service after prosthetics, said Denis Kovlen, head of the department of physical and rehabilitation medicine at the Kirov Military Medical Academy.

    Over 80% of patients (from among the participants of the SVO - ed.) with traumatic amputations of limbs today, after rehabilitation and prosthetics, return to military service and continue it,” Kovlen said at a round table on the topic “Comprehensive rehabilitation of combatants and civilians, victims of the actions of the Ukrainian side during the special military operation (SVO)."

    The colonel of the medical service added that this figure “neither after the Great Patriotic War, nor after Afghanistan - such figures have never been achieved.”

    In the rehabilitation and educational center operating on the basis of the Military Medical Academy named after S.M. Kirov, the head of the Department of Military Education - Deputy Head of the Main Personnel Department of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, Major General Igor Muravlyannikov presented state awards, certificates of completion of the course of additional vocational education, military ranks and orders of Courage to military personnel participating in a special military operation.

    Major General Igor Muravlyannikov conveyed the words of gratitude to the servicemen from the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, General of the Army Sergei Shoigu for the courage, bravery and bravery shown in the performance of military duty.

    The event was also attended by Alexander Novikov, Acting Deputy head of the Western branch of the FSAU Roszhilcomplex, who handed over housing documents to more than 60 servicemen.

    "For military personnel who have decided to continue military service after treatment, rehabilitation and professional retraining, housing specialists have already selected and prepared places of residence in selected regions of the country," Alexander Novikov said.

    The head of the Military Medical Academy, Lieutenant General of the Medical Service Yevgeny Kryukov, spoke about the program of further rehabilitation of servicemen and medical support at new places of military service: "In order to restore the lost functions, modern prostheses have been selected, manufactured and customized for each of you. A course of training in the use of them was conducted. An individual rehabilitation program has been developed for each of you, according to which, in the future, measures will be taken to maintain the prostheses and replace them if necessary."

    The Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation decided to ensure the possibility of further military service for all servicemen who were injured during a special military operation (optional). The new specialties received will allow servicemen who have been injured to continue serving in new military positions in organizations of the Russian Ministry of Defense.

    For reference:

    For each serviceman, a military position is introduced in military commissariats, military units, institutions and organizations of the Ministry of Defense of Russia. In order to complete military service in these positions, military personnel must be trained to perform their duties.

    The training programs include:

    - the basic part, which provides for the study of federal legislation and regulatory legal documents in the field of state defense and mobilization work, as well as the activities of military commissariats;

    - the variable part, the content of which is aimed at training in the performance of duties in the position to which the serviceman is appointed.

    The final certification of military personnel is planned in the form of an interview. Upon completion of the training, the relevant documents will be issued to the persons who have successfully mastered the training program.

    All teaching materials, electronic textbooks and other electronic educational resources for conducting training sessions have been developed and are ready for training.

    For the implementation of educational programs, qualified teaching staff of the Military Medical Academy named after S.M. Kirov was selected from among candidates of sciences with relevant experience in training officers.

    This is only one of the directions of a large-scale program of measures aimed at the social rehabilitation of wounded servicemen, approved by the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation.

    The program also provides for measures to restore health and medical rehabilitation, an individual approach to determining further service assignments and a special procedure for military service, the provision of social benefits and guarantees, as well as housing.

    Almost all the wounded who end up in Russian hospitals from the Northern Military District return to duty, and the mortality rate does not exceed 0.45% - this is several times less than during military conflicts of the recent past, the head of the main military clinical hospital said in an interview with Izvestia. hospital named after N.N. Burdenko Denis Davydov. Over the past year and a half, Russian military doctors have gained unique experience that no other country in the world has, he is sure. What this experience consists of, why the nature of injuries has changed, what operations are now performed right on the line of combat contact, and how modern exoprosthetics allow soldiers to remain in service - read in Izvestia’s conversation with Denis Davydov. “The means of destruction have changed a lot”

    — What are the features of a special military operation compared to previous conflicts from the point of view of military medicine?

    — The SVO is enormously different from the combat operations that we faced 15–20 years ago. A huge number of unmanned weapons are used that do not require the direct participation of people. The means of destruction have changed greatly, they have become more sophisticated.

    We see that there are relatively few bullet wounds - about a quarter. The rest are mine-explosive and fragmentation. And the wounding elements have become different : materials that cause the greatest damage are now selected for them, and there are a lot of them.

    The medical service had to learn all this very quickly and quickly adapt . It turned out, in general, quite successfully.

    — We communicate at the International Forum on Surgery of Contemporary Armed Conflicts. Do Russian military doctors have anything to tell about it, based on the experience of the SVO?

    — There are a number of technologies, the use of which on the battlefield 10–15 years ago we could not imagine, but today this is the practice of military doctors. First of all, this is prosthetics for the main functions of the body - the heart, lungs - directly on the line of combat contact. This technique is called extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Previously, damage to large vessels, the heart, and lungs inevitably led to death. Now, immediately after being wounded, almost in a trench, we can establish this system and ensure the functioning of the vital functions of the body.

    We learned how to quickly immobilize a wounded person. We have rod devices that help to completely immobilize a segment of any limb in 15–20 minutes.
    Operational intervention: the first ambulance train was sent to the Northern Military District zone
    It will provide urgent assistance to the wounded, their recovery and evacuation.

    These technologies were previously unavailable so close to the war zone. Now this makes it possible to save the lives of military personnel, quickly prepare them for transportation, provide pain relief, carry out anti-shock measures, and then transport them for further treatment.

    Today we have stronger drugs: painkillers, antibiotics, drugs that help correct the psychological state of military personnel.
    “Exoprosthetics have reached a new level”

    — At the forum it was said that the concept of “non-transportable wounded” is disappearing. Has this problem really been solved?

    — The Afghan and Chechen campaigns confirmed the experience of the Great Patriotic War: medical evacuation measures have their own laws, and they must be strictly observed.Many pathologies were considered a contraindication for transportation. Now we can say that only head wounds remain such an obstacle : you have to be careful there, and you cannot evacuate immediately after a wound or operation. As for injuries to all other segments of the body, we can safely deliver any wounded person in any condition to the stage of highly qualified medical care.


    — Have you been able to reduce the mortality rate among the wounded?


    — Hospital mortality now does not exceed 0.45%. And this is a colossal breakthrough for the military medical service. During the Great Patriotic War this figure was 7.5%, during the Afghan campaign - 4.4%, during the fighting in the North Caucasus - 1.1%. As for hospital mortality in the Ukrainian Armed Forces, it is many times higher.
    Protective cover: a gun that heals wounds has been created in Russia
    How a new development will help doctors in a combat zone

    — One of the topics discussed at the forum is the increase in the proportion of wounded who return to duty after treatment. What is the dynamic here?

    — During the Great Patriotic War, doctors returned about 75% of the wounded to duty. Now we manage to return 98%. The rest are forced to take a commission due to health reasons.

    Previously, people with an amputated arm or leg had to leave the Armed Forces. With rare exceptions, of course: we remember them from literature - for example, the pilot Alexei Maresyev. Now this has become a common occurrence.

    - What does this have to do with?

    — Firstly, a new level of exoprostheses. As you pass by, you won’t even notice that the person is missing a limb or a segment of it, and it has been replaced with an exoprosthesis.And besides, we have quite a lot of positions, and there is a need for these people to continue serving in the Armed Forces and continue to help the army.

    After severe injuries, people return to serve in units where staff work and training are carried out. These people have vast experience, the Ministry of Defense needs them.

    Even during the rounds that we constantly conduct in the hospital, many of those who have serious injuries ask: “Can I remain in the Armed Forces? I want to continue to serve, please leave me.” Naturally, we are doing everything possible to socialize them and prevent the army from losing experienced servicemen. “Many civilian doctors came as volunteers and went to the Northern Military District zone”

    What problems do military doctors most often encounter?

    “It is very difficult for us to combat the resistance of microorganisms and their growing resistance to antibiotics.

    We also need technologies that make it possible to safely prosthetize the vital functions of the body.

    Materials are needed that will be even more inert and will not interact with bone and soft tissue, allowing for individualization of the design. Although already now the lion's share of designs are, in fact, printed on a 3D printer and have an individual character for a particular wounded or injured person. This needs to be developed, this is the future.

    — Do you feel supported by your civilian colleagues?

    — After the start of the special military operation, civilian hospitals, institutes, federal and other centers called and offered help. Many doctors came as volunteers and went to the North Military District zone. And now many travel and sign contracts for military service. We were not left alone. The medical service of the Armed Forces felt the shoulder and saw that it had a huge resource to replenish its ranks with qualified specialists. And these people come not under duress or in search of some benefit, but at the behest of their hearts.
    Late payment: when will doctors’ salaries be increased?
    The implementation of the new remuneration system has been postponed once again

    The North Atlantic Alliance, which has a huge amount of technology, people, resources, money, and capabilities, is actually fighting against us. We are confronting, essentially, alone. But time has shown that we have turned from twigs into a bundle that cannot be broken. Our level of consolidation is one of the keys to success.

    Timely provision of medical care to a wounded soldier during an armed conflict is something on which his life directly depends. But what is meant by “timely”?

    Sergei Polikarpov, a volunteer military doctor, surgeon and oncologist with twenty years of experience, spoke about this in an interview with the TacticMedia channel.

    As the expert put it, extreme medicine in combat conditions is primarily associated with three difficulties: a massive influx of wounded, a catastrophic lack of time to provide assistance and limited resources.

    To provide the most effective first aid in the event of a mass influx of soldiers with injuries of varying severity, there is a procedure called triage. According to Polikarpov, the following categories are distinguished.

    Hopeless (black) is a fighter who is silent and does not breathe. If there is a mass intake, two artificial breaths are given to him. If there is no effect, further manipulations are not carried out due to extreme time constraints.

    Red – silent and breathing well. This category includes severe patients who may die in the next 10-15 minutes.

    Yellow – talks, answers questions, screams and can move limbs. Helping him can be delayed for 10-15 minutes.

    Green - wounded, but walks, talks and is able to help himself. At least the first one. Doctors deal with such fighters last of all.

    Regarding the concept of “golden hour,” which can often be found in literature and articles on tactical medicine, as the military surgeon explained, the first peak of mortality of soldiers after being wounded, according to statistics, occurs at 40-45 minutes. Thus, the concept of “golden hour” is somewhat simplified.

    The second and third peaks of mortality, as stated by the volunteer doctor, occur in the time period of 2-3 hours and after the second week, respectively.

    Also during the conversation, Polikarpov spoke about one prevailing myth, which says that most wounded soldiers die from painful shock. According to the military doctor, there is no pain shock as such. A wounded soldier dies from hemorrhagic shock, that is, from blood loss.

    92% of all casualties in all armed conflicts bleed to death - the expert emphasized.

    Pharmacies reduce sugar, by Polina Gritsenko for Kommersant. 12.15.2023.

    An analogue of Ozempic appeared on sale despite the Danish patent

    The fact that the Danish Novo Nordisk has a patent for the popular drug for controlling glucose levels “Ozempic” did not prevent the appearance of a local analogue of the drug in pharmacies. Sales of “Quincenta” released by Promomed began in several chains in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Only Novo Nordisk itself can ban the circulation of generics, but it will probably be more profitable for the company to reach an agreement with manufacturers of analogues, experts say.

    The Promomed company's drug for controlling sugar levels, semaglutide, under the brand name "Quincenta", appeared in the pharmacies "Zdorov.ru" and "Fialka" in Moscow and St. Petersburg, Kommersant discovered on the online display windows of these pharmacies. According to AptekaMos.ru, “Quincenta” can also be purchased at REDapteka in Moscow and “People’s Pharmacy” in St. Petersburg. The cost of "Quincenta" is from 5.65 thousand to 5.7 thousand rubles. per package.

    “Quincenta” is a generic version of the popular drug “Ozempic” registered in October by the Danish Novo Nordisk. It is indicated for controlling glucose levels in diabetics, but off-label in Russia it is also used for weight loss. In 2022, sales of Ozempic worldwide increased by 77%, to DKK 59.75 billion (RUB 825.3 billion), Novo Nordisk reported. The company must stop supplying Ozempic to Russia by the end of this year; now the drug is sold only with preferential prescriptions.

    "Quincenta" went on sale despite the presence of a patent for the original "Ozempic" in the Russian Federation, which is valid until 2035. Promomed told Kommersant that they are in correspondence with Novo Nordisk and, in parallel with providing patients with vital drugs, are resolving legal aspects. Novo Nordisk declined to comment.

    Another analogue of semaglutide under the brand name Semavica is being prepared for sale by Geropharm. The first three series of this drug were put into circulation on December 11, according to data from Roszdravnadzor. “Geropharm” in the fall turned to the government with a request for a compulsory license, said the general director and co-owner of the company Pyotr Rodionov. The company offered Novo Nordisk to start producing Ozempic at its facilities, but did not receive a response. Geropharm told Kommersant that Semavik will go on sale after the government’s decision on compulsory licensing.

    The Ministry of Industry and Trade told Kommersant that the mechanism for issuing a compulsory license “requires careful application” to maintain a balance of interests of manufacturers and patients.

    As a representative of the Ministry of Industry and Trade recalled, companies have the right to demand a compulsory license through the court, citing insufficient use of the patent. According to the file of arbitration cases, as of December 15, no such applications had been received.

    As part of the government order, analogues of semaglutide have been purchased since November, as follows from the information on the government procurement website. According to Kommersant’s calculations, by December 14, the regions had signed contracts for the supply of Semavik or Quicenta for 147.2 million rubles. Contracts for RUB 52.9 million. are at the signing stage. Some agreements limit delivery to the end of 2023. There are no completed contracts yet.

    Alexey Mikhailov, head of patent practice at the Patentus bureau, says that only the manufacturer of the original medicine, if it is under patent protection, can obtain a ban on the sale of a generic through the court. DSM Group CEO Sergei Shulyak points out that if Novo Nordisk goes to court, it may receive a counterclaim for compulsory licensing due to non-use of the patent. In his opinion, it may be more profitable for the Danish company to negotiate with Promomed and Geropharm on the sale of generics under certain conditions.

    This drug is a quick fix. People are too lazy to reduce their glucose (including starches) and fructose intake and do intermittent fasting. The
    latter would do wonders for their health. The long term effects of the pharmaceutical are unknown and given the track record not likely to
    be good.

    No amount of fasting can cure diabetes. Sure it will lower blood sugar somewhat but people with advanced diabetes cannot have a normal glicemic level and maintain a normal weight with fasting alone.

    Try seeing pictures of terminal cases of diabetes before injectable insulin was invented. Advanced diabetes patients lose weight as the body becomes unable to use the glucose in the blood. Then they just die without treatment.

    As for negative long term effects of semaglutide it is known that it can cause cancer in some rare cases. Much more common side effects are nausea and vomiting.

    It is indicated for controlling glucose levels in diabetics, but off-label in Russia it is also used for weight loss.

    The misuse of drugs is a bad thing.

    Improved diet, and exercise are the best way to lose weight, and in extreme cases controlled diets are necessary.

    Many fat people have no self control and cannot be trusted with feeding themselves, or have enablers around them that help them with their problem.

    If you weight 200kgs and you have a dozen eggs and bacon and sausages and tomatoes and bread and potatoes for breakfast and you have a big cooked dinner and lunch as well then of course you are going to stay fat. If you eat chips and drink fizzy drinks and most importantly eat every time you are hungry then it is not murder it is suicide.

    Fat people just have to learn it is OK to be hungry and if you get hungry but you don't eat... you don't keep getting hungrier and hungrier until you die... eventually the feeling of hunger goes away and your body uses your fat reserves for the energy it needed.

    Sadly the fast food and snack food industry wants you to eat every time your body needs energy which is why your fat reserves never get used and your excessive eating means you put weight on.

    Taking a pill for it is like the oxycotton epidemic in the US where more people die from pain killers than from car accidents... but it is OK because most of it is prescribed by a doctor.

    Hopefully Russia looks carefully at the drugs they can create and only bothers spending money on the useful ones rather than the lazy fucker ones.

    Eat what you like but don't gain weight... a new drug called Speed.

    The world's first operation to replace a soft tissue injury by in situ bioprinting directly into a wound defect was performed by surgeons of the Main Military Clinical Hospital (GVKG) named after Academician N. N. Burdenko, the press service of the National Research Technological University "MISIS" (NUST MISIS) reported on December 26.

    The operation used a bioprinter developed by NUST MISIS scientists and 3D Bioprinting Solutions, a pioneer of Russian bioprinting. The bioprinter device contains a bioprinting system, computer vision and a robotic arm that supplies biopolymer to the wound.

    The trajectory of this robot after automatic scanning of the damage site was programmed by a MISIS specialist. Next, the bone marrow cells taken from the patient by the doctor were "tucked" into a bioprinter, and the robot carried out the bioprinting without human participation.

    The Ministry of Health stated that Russian medicines can replace foreign ones, 02.02.2024.

    Murashko: if there are problems with foreign medicines, they will be replaced by Russian ones.

    MOSCOW, February 2 – RIA Novosti. Russia has significant competencies in pharmaceuticals, and if any foreign company leaves the Russian market, the government may decide to launch its own production of a similar drug, Health Minister Mikhail Murashko said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

    “We understand that if we do not violate international law, including patent law, when work is carried out as planned and as a partnership, but the company decides to act differently, then the government of the Russian Federation already has practice when We make our own decisions in the interests of the population and, accordingly, production,” he said.

    The minister recalled that, according to global estimates, Russia is among the leaders in the pharmaceutical field. All countries understand this perfectly well, and therefore companies realize that it is inappropriate to leave the Russian market, Murashko concluded.

    As President Vladimir Putin noted this week , Russia now produces 75 percent of vitally needed medicines through its own production. But this is not enough, we need to support science, technology development, the domestic market and production, the head of state emphasized.

    typically three times a day around the time when people usually eat. If you do substantial fasting (e.g. alternate day fasting) you can reset this signalling pattern and not be
    hungry on some clock. You can transition to one meal a day or any other pattern. You can continue alternate day fasting without any harm. Fasting enables the body
    to fix itself, this includes stem cell release and clean up of damaged proteins and structures such as mitochondria. The fasting after dinner and during sleep is not enough.
    Intermittent fasting combined with a low carb diet is the best anti-inflammatory regimen possible. People who eat the standard high carb diet every day are perpetually
    low-grade inflamed. It is impressive how such a state does not lead to mortality by the time people reach their 40s. But it does produce the heart disease, diabetes,
    Alzheimer's and even cancer that you see in people over 50.

    The sick thing is that governments and medical associations do not inform the public how to avoid becoming metabolic syndrome victims through the most effective means,
    diet (i.e. real diet advice not food pyramid BS) and physical activity. Instead they push extortion priced pharmaceuticals. One of my close relatives is being given high
    carb meals at the hospital even though they are a diabetic. Don't expect proper treatment from the system.

    I agree with every point you make, but the sinister aspect... (in addition to the fact that our government and healthcare systems are not interested in actually solving the problem with the distribution of actual factual information) is that the food industry has created a snack culture... just the same as the drug industry has created a medication culture in the US. Feel like you could eat a snack... buy this. Feeling a mild headache? ...take this pill and all the pain goes away...

    The real problem is that a large portion of the population seek pleasure and comfort so you give them tasty treats the reason they are considered tasty in the west is because they are full of sugar and fat, but even if they weren't full of energy eating every time you are hungry as well as at meal times and of course all the artificial break times for modern work protocols where you have a hot drink and a muffin or biscuit, or some snack from the vending machine, and the real surprise is that everyone isn't fat... and in lots of places most people are.

    You see adverts for fast food and snack food everywhere all the time, on the internet on billboards on TV, before movies... in most commercial buildings in the form of readily available products in vending machines. Not just that but also government buildings, hospitals and schools and libraries.

    The culture is comfort and being hungry is not comfortable... especially when bombarded with food commercials.

    This is compounded even more now... the irony is delicious.... because the snack food industry has a new solution to your being fat... you need to exercise... and if you need to exercise you are going to need energy drinks and energy bars because those 7 sit ups you do a week (one half first thing in the morning when you get up and the other half when you lie down for bed at night) makes you an Olympic athlete that needs energy so you need your blue drink that looks like window cleaning chemicals (they think they are so rad but there were very good reasons companies didn't make drinks look like dangerous chemicals...) and these new drinks and energy bars make things worse... because if a fat person tries to go for a walk the first thing they do when they get home is have an energy drink and an energy bar that each contain about 20 times more calories than they just consumed on their marathon walk to the letter box to get their post.

    They tell everyone they don't understand why they are actually putting on weight now they are exercising.

    So they stop exercising. Or they go an exercise with a healthy person and it nearly kills them. So they stop exercising.

    BUT THEY KEEP DRINKING THE ENERGY DRINKS AND ENERGY BARS BECAUSE THEY TASTE NICE.

    And the doctors advice is to eat healthier foods and get some exercise...

    But drug companies and snack food companies and even breakfast companies insist you never miss a meal even when you are not hungry and if you get hungry in between meals have a snack... you will feel better at the time... but as you gain weight you will end up being trapped in your own body.

    PUTIN: THE RF HAS SIGNIFICANT ACHIEVEMENTS IN MEDICINE, BUT WE NEED TO MOVE FURTHER, INCREASE SELF-SUFFICIENCY, AND BECOME GLOBAL LEADERS.

    Russia is close to creating cancer vaccines, Putin said.
    Putin expressed hope that the use of cancer vaccines will soon begin.

    East African country opens medical lab equipped by Russia – envoy, 03.13.2024.

    Moscow has supplied reagents for research in Burundi, Valery Mikhailov has said.

    Burundi has launched operations at a specialist infectious disease research laboratory fully outfitted with Russian equipment, Moscow’s ambassador to Burundi, Valery Mikhailov, told TASS on Wednesday.

    Specialists in Burundi now have the opportunity to recognize and identify infectious diseases, even those that are “highly dangerous,” Mikhailov added.

    According to the envoy, Moscow has supplied laboratory reagents that can be used to treat various forms of hemorrhagic fever, leptospirosis, and other dangerous infectious diseases.

    “In February, a fully equipped research laboratory supplied by Russia was opened at the National Institute of Public Health,” the diplomat said. He noted that the agreement to supply and stock the lab had been reached during the Russia-Africa Summit last summer, when bilateral deals deals were signed on energy, healthcare, education, labor, and justice.

    In August, the World Health Organization released a report stating that Burundi has a “high burden of communicable and non-communicable disease… with the latter making up 37% of deaths in 2019.” Although it made strides in improving child survival rates from 2015 to 2021, it has not achieved the Sustainable Development Goal targets.

    In November last year, a team of virologists and military personnel from the Russian Nuclear, Chemical, and Biological Protection Troops arrived in Burkina Faso to set up a mobile laboratory for dengue fever screening. Moscow dispatched specialists after the military government of the West African country stated that since January of last year, more than 200 people died as a result of the mosquito-borne epidemic, mainly in the capital, Ouagadougou and Bobo-Dioulasso.

    Cancer vaccines ready within three years – Russian scientist, 03.21.2024.

    Most remaining obstacles appear to be regulatory, according to Vasily Lazarev of Russia’s Federal Medical-Biological Agency.

    Russian medical researchers could be able to roll out oncological vaccines within the next couple of years, given adequate funding and support from lawmakers, a high-ranking official at the Federal Medical-Biological Agency (FMBA) said on Thursday.

    The comments come after President Vladimir Putin said last month that the country was “one step away” from developing vaccines against cancer.

    “If financial support is provided, I think that in two or three years existing organizations will be able to put oncology vaccines into practice,” Vasily Lazarev, deputy director of the Lopukhin Federal Scientific and Clinical Center for Physical and Chemical Medicine, told the outlet RTVI.

    Domestic private investors will also be attracted to the technology “after regulatory pressure eases,” he added.

    Lazarev did not bring up any medical or technological challenges, choosing instead to highlight the legal constraints facing vaccine development.

    “I don’t know how quickly by-laws will be developed, it could take a year to resolve all the regulatory issues,” he said. “We have the tools, the production facilities, I think it’s not difficult to organize.”

    Amendments proposed by the FMBA, which would allow for the production and use of “variable composition” medication, will go into effect in September. They also require the drugs to be produced at the same institution that holds the patent, however.

    “Organizing such production at home will be quite expensive, although it is feasible,” Lazarev said. “Most likely, these will be regional centers and maybe specialized oncological institutions.”

    There are currently only a handful of facilities that could handle the production requirements, such as the Blokhin Cancer Center or the FMBA’s Federal Center for Brain and Neurotechnology, both located in Moscow.

    Variable-composition neoantigens, which vaccine developers have focused on, don’t quite fit the current Russian legal framework and could not be used in treatments at all until very recently.

    Putin revealed the development of cancer vaccines at the Future Technologies Forum in Moscow last month. The Russian president mentioned them among the developing medical technologies that he described as approaching science fiction.

    Traditionally people with cancer went to Mexico or a range of other countries for treatment... it seems like Russia could be a good place to go now too.

    If you have cancer then getting into a testing programme for promising drugs can be your best chance of survival.

    The irony is that if this was America talking and it was 15 years ago then Apple would be donating a lot of money into this programme... (Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer in 2011....)

    Russian medicine increasingly relies on domestic (solutions), by Irina Rostovskaya for VZGLYAD. 05.28.2024.

    Russia is experiencing rapid growth in an industry that until recent years was almost entirely dominated by foreign manufacturers - the pharmaceutical and medical industries. Hundreds of new drugs and medical devices developed in Russia have appeared, and entire medical clusters are opening. How has this been achieved in recent years?

    In April of this year, the country registered the world's first drug for the treatment of ankylosing spondylitis, a severe and until recently considered incurable autoimmune disease.

    Developments of this level have not been isolated in Russia recently. These include, for example, a method for treating brain diseases based on “reprogramming” skin cells into neurons, as well as a new drug against cancer. Russian medicines for psoriasis and diabetes are undergoing clinical trials. The drug Lantesens, an analogue of the spinal muscular atrophy drug Spinraza, one of the most expensive drugs in the world, recently received registration.

    “Drug production increased over the past year by more than seven percent. 530 domestic drugs were released onto the market. Including the advanced ones,” Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said in April.

    “New tissue engineering products for the restoration of cartilage tissue, modern bionic prostheses, new heart valves and vascular prostheses are just some examples of the results that we were able to achieve,” confirms Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova.

    All this is happening in an industry whose degree of import dependence was not so long ago assessed as critical: experts spoke of a total dependence of about 90%. In particular, four to five years ago the share of production of domestic substances for the production of drugs was estimated at 5.5-6%, the rest was imported. And only 18% of medical products and equipment were produced by Russia itself.

    In such conditions, it was obvious that the development of our own medicinal and medical industry should become one of the key issues in ensuring national technological sovereignty. Ensuring self-sufficiency in this area is not a political issue, but a very vital one, especially in the conditions of a hybrid war, actually launched against Russia, and the total restrictions adopted by Western countries against the domestic economy.

    Pharmaceutical production directly affects the country’s ability to protect itself from epidemics and the consequences of emergencies, as well as the level and quality of life. The availability of high-quality domestic medicines and medical products is both a guarantee of the combat effectiveness of the army and a factor in the success of, for example, agriculture (if we talk about veterinary drugs).

    The quality and life expectancy of citizens, their involvement in the economy, and the health of future generations depend on the availability of modern medicines and medical equipment. This is an important indicator of the development of the country as a whole and its attractiveness for living.

    The medicinal industry, as well as the medical equipment sector, was marginally affected by the sanctions campaign - only a few items disappeared from the market. Most drugs, equipment and medical products are imported into Russia, but suppliers report logistical difficulties. Large pharmaceutical giants have not stopped their activities in Russia, but have significantly reduced them.

    The actions of the country's leadership are aimed at ensuring that the required level of sovereignty in the production of medicines and medical equipment is achieved as quickly as possible. The import substitution program in the medicinal sector has been implemented since 2014 - and during this time 77 industrial production sites have been created in Russia. In the last two years alone, 14 new production facilities have been opened, including eight with the ability to produce pharmaceutical substances.

    In the summer of 2023, the government approved the Pharma-2030 development strategy for the pharmaceutical industry. It assumes, in particular, an increase by 2030 to 90% of the share of strategically important medicines of domestic production.

    The preliminary results of the implementation of the program were assessed by Russian President Vladimir Putin. “A lot has been done here, but, of course, there is still more to be done,” he said in January 2024. The head of state also noted the results already achieved: “Of the so-called vitally important drugs, we already provide 75% through our own production.” Among the tasks, the president named supporting scientific developments in the medical field, expanding the domestic market, increasing the production of medicines, and working on training and retraining of personnel.

    By the end of 2024, the national project “New Health Saving Technologies” should be developed and begin to be implemented. Putin gave the corresponding instructions to the government back in April. One of the most important tasks within the framework of the national project is the introduction of new domestic drugs, medical devices and biomedical cell products into healthcare. This task corresponds to the goal of strengthening state, cultural, value and economic sovereignty, increasing the country’s population and raising the standard of living of citizens, outlined in the new May decree of the head of state.

    The medical industry and pharmaceuticals are now one of the most dynamically developing industries in the country. Manufacturers of medical products and drugs have access to preferential investment loans from the Industrial Development Fund, special investment contracts, venture investments made through the PharmMedInnovations fund, grants to finance scientific research and other support measures.

    Thus, the share of domestic drugs in physical terms is 62.9% of the total volume - and this figure is growing steadily. Russia already produces 20% of the substances necessary for the manufacture of medicines itself (and not 6%, as before).

    The production of medical products is also developing - original materials for prosthetics, diagnostic and therapeutic devices are being created. Although dependence on imports is still high, the numbers no longer look catastrophic. “Today, 75% of medical equipment in Russia is imported. Therefore, there is a huge niche here. We need to work in this direction, and we are working. Today we have about 150 items of various types of medical equipment produced at our enterprises,” noted Rostec head Sergei Chemezov in an interview with RBC .

    Among the newest products of Rostec is the first Russian complex for non-surgical removal of tumors using focused ultrasound, a breathing support device for newborns, ventilators, diagnostic devices, and medications.

    The production of diagnostic equipment is growing: X-ray systems, tomographs, ultrasound machines. Thus, the production of ultrasound machines from 2016 to 2022 increased almost 10 times, electrocardiographs from 2014 to 2022 - more than doubled, disposable syringes - 1.7 times.

    About 80% of registration certificates for dressing medical products belong to Russian manufacturers. Hemostatic, wound-healing and anti-burn agents are being created and introduced into production. Since 2021, an enterprise has been operating in the country that produces latex for medical and technical gloves. Before this, the material was purchased only abroad.

    Factories and laboratories are being built, cooperation between scientific centers and industrial enterprises is being created.

    In December 2022, a line for the production of strategically important drugs was launched in Saransk, capable of producing up to a billion tablets per year. Production sites in Chernogolovka, Dubna, Korolev and Dolgoprudny near Moscow, ten new lines for the production of pharmaceutical substances in Bratsk, and large-scale production of vital drugs in the Irkutsk region will soon begin operations.

    New scientific facilities are also being created: a laboratory for the development of new drugs was recently opened at Tomsk Siberian State Medical University. In the future, a pharmaceutical engineering center should be created on the basis of the university.

    On behalf of the head of state, this year a center for the production of gene therapy drugs should be founded on the basis of the Russian National Research Medical University named after. N.I. Pirogov. The possibility of creating centralized services using artificial intelligence technologies is being studied, which will allow medical organizations located in the regions to conduct diagnostic studies using technological developments and capabilities of the capital region.

    One of the key aspects of industry development is related to the level of trust in domestic products. It takes years to develop a reputation in this area. And although more than half of Russians prefer domestic medicines and only a quarter prefer imported ones, the inertia of consciousness among both doctors and patients is quite strong. “It often happens psychologically that a person is accustomed to a certain medicine, but this is important, even psychology is very important, whether a person believes in this medicine or not,” the head of state previously noted.

    This means that the Russian market of pharmaceuticals and medical equipment, gaining greater independence, will remain open to foreign medicines and technologies, and develop international cooperation and scientific exchange. This is also one of the conditions for the country’s technological sovereignty.

    A revolutionary vaccine against all types of cancer was successfully tested in Russia, 06.07.2024.

    The first trials of a revolutionary vaccine against all types of cancer were conducted in Russia, and it showed good results. The head of the Center N.F. Gamaleya, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Ginzburg spoke about this.

    The first testing of the drug was carried out on mice that were artificially inoculated with melanoma. After this, some rodents were given the vaccine, while others were not. On the 15th day, when the animals' immune systems began to work, scientists saw a large difference in tumor size between vaccinated and unvaccinated mice. Those rodents that received the vaccine are alive. In those unvaccinated, deaths were recorded between days 19 and 22. Gunzburg added that the experiment is currently ongoing.

    “Indeed, a universal technology has been created that allows us to solve literally all the problems of oncology. How this will be implemented in practice is another matter,” he noted.

    The scientist noted that the therapeutic vaccine was created based on mRNA technologies, similar to drugs for COVID-19. It will be administered to people who already have cancer. It is noteworthy that the vaccines will be individual, that is, developed taking into account the specific characteristics of the patient. According to Ginzburg, it is planned that cancer patients in Russia will be injected with the vaccine intramuscularly or directly into the tumor, then the drug will be distributed evenly throughout the body. At the same time, the option of administration through a dropper is not being considered, since “all this falls into the liver.” “Of course, the effectiveness depends on the method of administration. In the near future we will clarify the answer to this question,” he explained.

    It was previously reported that Russian scientists have developed a unique technology that will help defeat glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. This method can radically change the principle of treating cancer and become a real breakthrough.

    Will a cure for cancer become a reality? Academician Ginzburg told how preclinical studies of the drug are being carried out, by Irina Krasnopolskaya for Rossiyskaya Gazeta. 06.07.2024.

    Preclinical studies of an anti-cancer drug are being conducted at the Gamaleya Center.

    Alexander Ginzburg: Few people know that cancer cells appear in a healthy body all the time. However, thanks to the work of the immune system in the body of a healthy person, altered tumor cells can be detected and destroyed in the early stages of their appearance. Thus, one of the most important tools of the antitumor immune system is the ability of cells to constantly present peptides - fragments of cellular proteins - on their surface. This is a kind of document (passport or pass) that allows the guard cells of the immune system to understand who is ours and who is a stranger. If a virus enters a cell or mutations accumulate that can change the sequence of proteins encoded by the cell, “foreign peptides” appear on the surface of the cells, unfamiliar to the immune system. Such a cell is marked as foreign and destroyed. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. And in some people, the immune system may fail, fail to remove the altered cell, and then a tumor will develop.

    So what should we do? Is it possible to help a person whose body did not detect a tumor cell in time and did not destroy it?

    Alexander Ginzburg: The technology of personalized mRNA vaccines comes to the rescue. In this case, altered cells (biopsy of tumor material), as well as material from healthy cells (patient’s blood), are taken for analysis, which identifies mutations that lead to the appearance of neoantigens containing amino acid substitutions in cellular proteins. At the same time, from many hundreds and thousands of options, only those that are able to reliably distinguish a tumor cell from a healthy one are selected.

    Based on such neoantigens, a personalized mRNA drug is prepared using special algorithms. This drug is intended for a specific patient and for his specific tumor. The use of such a drug quickly trains the immune system to new targets that are found only in the tumor, which leads to the effective destruction of tumor cells without harm to healthy cells of the body.

    If I’m not mistaken, the Gamaleya Center has been developing technology for mRNA drugs for many years.

    Alexander Ginzburg: You’re not mistaken! All key components have been created that allow the creation of candidate immunobiological drugs using data on the structure of the antigen in a short time. The high efficiency of mRNA technology has been demonstrated in various animal models. And since 2023, thanks to the active support of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, with the participation of the leading oncology centers National Medical Research Center of Radiology and National Medical Research Center of Oncology named after Blokhin, the leading biotechnological university Sirius, work has been launched to create a full-cycle technology, which makes it possible to count on the appearance of personalized mRNA in the Russian Federation in the near future - drugs.

    But this is not tomorrow?

    Alexander Ginzburg
    : Currently, the created consortium has managed to demonstrate the high efficiency of the mRNA platform created at the Gamaleya Center for the treatment of mouse melanoma. The model makes it possible to evaluate tumor growth within a month in control mice and those mice that received a drug encoding mouse tumor neoantigens. Animals that received the mRNA drug are able to form an effective antitumor immune response within two weeks, reducing tumor size. Work is underway to develop compositions of neoantigens capable of forming antitumor immunity.

    The bulk of preclinical studies will be completed by the end of the year. In addition, it is important to build an experimental production module for the synthesis of these mRNA drugs. And if everything succeeds, if preclinical studies and the creation of the first production of mRNA drugs in the Russian Federation are successfully completed, then from 2025-2026 it will be possible to begin using personalized drugs in people.

    Murashko announced the deadline for completing preclinical trials of a cancer vaccine, 06.09.2024.

    Murashko: by the end of the year there will be results of preclinical trials of a cancer vaccine.

    The Russian cancer vaccine is undergoing preclinical trials, the minister said. According to one of the developers, the drug will be administered to already sick people so that their immune system learns to distinguish malignant cells.

    The Russian cancer vaccine is at the preclinical research station, their results are planned to be obtained by the end of this year, Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko told TASS .

    The developers of the drug are the Research Center of Epidemiology and Microbiology named after. N. F. Gamaleya, Moscow Research Oncology Institute named after. P. A. Herzen and National Medical Research Center of Oncology named after. N. N. Blokhina. The work is funded by the state.

    “The vaccine is currently undergoing preclinical studies, the first results of which we expect to receive by the end of the year and then begin clinical trials,” he said.

    On June 6, the head of the center named after. Gamaleya Alexander Ginzburg told Gazeta.ru details about the drug being developed. According to him, this is a therapeutic vaccine (that is, it will be administered to already sick people), created on the basis of mRNA technology (matrix ribonucleic acid). Pfizer and Moderna vaccines against COVID-19 were created using this method. According to Ginsburg, the vaccine could be used for any type of cancer.

    “They will be individual, designed for a specific person. <...> This technology makes it possible to create very high concentrations of the target antigen in cells, that is, the protein or peptides that the vaccine developer encoded in this mRNA. This is necessary in order to show the immune system of a person with cancer how to distinguish a healthy cell from a malignant one,” Ginzburg explained.

    Russia to supply 4.5 million Convacell vaccines to Latin America in 2025, 06.14.2024.

    Moscow (Sputnik — - The Russian Federal Medical-Biological Agency (FMBA) plans to supply 4.5 million doses of the Convacell covid-19 vaccine to Latin American countries next year, FMBA Director Veronika Skvortsova said.

    "Since 2023, Nicaragua and now, consequently, several other countries in Central America and the Caribbean are also starting to get vaccinated with Convacell. Next year we will supply 4.5 million doses to Latin America alone," Skvortsova told reporters.

    Previously, the FMBA press office reported that the Russian Ministry of Health issued the certificate of registration of the Convacell vaccine, with an efficacy of 85.2% against covid-19. Among the volunteers over the age of 60, the indicator of 91.7% was even obtained.

    Skvortsova commented in turn that taking the N regulatory protein as a basis has made it possible to achieve a high efficacy of the vaccine against the new strains, as well as stated that its resistance to modifications allows us to hope that the preparation will not lose its efficacy against new coronavirus variants in the long term.
