Project summaryCreation of nanotechnology and the precision instrument for screening of a precancer of respiratory organs is planned. To provide high-precise and high-sensitive definition of nanoamount of atomavites an atomizer (the main block of an atomic-absorption spectrometer) with patent ability will be constructed.
In elderly patients (at the age of 65 years and more) with signs of chronic respiratoses of different genesis the following parameters will be studied: levels of some atomavites in various biospecimens; expression of some oncofetal, viral and hormonal antigens; factors of a coagulogram. Creation of a collection of biospecimens is planned.
For each of patient medical interrogation and physical examination are also to be carried out. Examination of 50 practically healthy people and 200 patients with chronic respiratory diseases and neurological syndromes is planned.
The laboratory of foreign collaborator will be chosen as reference one.
On the basis of the data obtained the computer database will be created and after statistical processing and analyses of the results obtained algorithms for suspicion of respiratory precancer diseases in screening of the population will be designed.
The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.
ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
