Project summary

Project summary

The objective of the project is to study the biological effects produced by Electric and Magnetic fields upon systems of organisms (immune systems) in diagnostic and treatment processes of diabetes. The project has no analogue among ISTC projects. The realization of the project will include the study of the stimulating effects of the hematopoietic, immune and endocrine systems during exposure to Electric Fields of specific resonance frequency ranges as well as to low-intensity Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) (near to 10mT) causing similar immunostimulating effects. The technical approach of the project includes the methods of biophysics used to study the mechanisms of EMF effects on persons (volunteers in laboratory conditions). Data will be obtained which characterizes EMF effects on the ability to repair damage in glucoleycemia, normalised activities acu-puncture points (APP) and immune systems, microcirculation conditions and anti-stress body stability.

Differential polyfunctional diagnostics of diabetes at initial stages is a very complicated problem, thereby new analysis techniques development is actual. Early diagnostics and well-timed treatment by new techniquies as Magnetic and Electric Fields and Laser give an opportunity of full healthing.

Special investigations show that various pathological states accompaneing of diabetes cause different changes in a liquid composition and activities of definite APP. This fact provides additional opportunities for diabetes diagnostics. It has been found that such widespread diseases as diabetes are accompanied with definite by orientation quantitative changes in concentrations of glucose, proteins, lactat, etc. and APP. According to the above, that studies with different forms of diabetes gains particular significance.

The development of a new direction of laboratory diagnostics as new noninvasive monitoring, which involves study of liquid compositions and APP is great of interest. It becomes of particular importance being applied to diagnostics of initial stages of various diseases. By present there have been developed new methodical approaches and criteria of estimation of the bio-liquid, which is formed in the process of its self-organization at the “liquid - solid” phase transition.

There exist certain methodical difficulties with “track substances” definition, which are due to low concentration of investigated elements and positions of APP. Taking into account physiological importance of APP and glucose in the human body ( homeostasis) and discovered tendencies in their distribution over the bio-liquid structure as a “norm” and a “pathology”, the use of the following methods for analysis: glucometer noninvasive method, which allows finding negligible quantities of substance in a blood and bio-liquid, the electric probe method, which provides information about APP composition and also allows gaining the maps of the APP distribution on a body. The use of these methods will provide essential widening of diagnostic potentialities of the traditional medicine technique.

Thus, bloc-sheme description of polyfunctional monitoring:

Magnetic Fields - acting factor,

Electric Fields - acting and researching factors,
Laser - acting and researching factors,

Gluco-bio-liquid meter - measuring factor, feedback for acting factors, Software, Hardware polyfunctional diagnostic - control with acting factors, accumulations all data, database diagnostic and health states.

The project aim is also to use a perspective types of infrared laser, which it used for glucose measurement in Glucometer.

It features by interaction with site of APP and by automatic choice of interaction optimal dose inpidually for each patient.

The purpose of the project is the use of perspective types of infrared laser as medical devices based upon the usage of scientific and methodological experience.

It is suggested in the project the development of a physio-therapeutic parameters of a new generation.

It can be done with the help monochromatic radiation with wavelength range 1.0 - 1.8 mkm, and also by control of absorbed radiation biodose and the result, of its interaction with hemodynamics of an organ radiated in the process of procedure.

It is suggested for the apparatus realization to use laser, singed for noninvasive glucose blood detection and other bio-liquid.

Photodynamic therapy without photosensibilisers is possible at average radiation power of hundreds of milliwatts.

In the of project also the development of the device is proposed for research activities APP systems with the help of optical-electrical non-invasive methods. By use of methods laser spectroscopy can investigate the processes of exchange glucose level and APP.

The polyparametric techniques in the proposal may permit diagnostic(rapid, non invasive) monitoring of patients; thus, for the first time it would be possible to assess glucose, protein, lactat concentrations and activities level of APP. The technique appears to be sensitive and specific. Other uses would include monitoring the effect of influence on EMF in cases of diabetes.

An actual direction of medicine is the problem of a health maintenance of the persons and contemporary achievements of diagnostics have shown, that the most favorable strategy for public health maintenance is the detection of early stages of damages and of the possible correction.

The methods are tested and positive conclusions from the Moscow Laser clinic “ASTR” are presented, as well as from method of Lednev.

Now there is a laboratory experimental model of system to detect the glucose, protein concentrations in model bio-liquids.

The basic purpose of the offered project is:

· The optimization of the new diagnostics methods for creation of technologies for diabetes treatment:

· Software and Hardware for polyfunctional methods of investigation;
· Development of parametric maps for detection initial stages of deseases;
· Creation of database for gathering and comparative analysis of physiological data for groups of the people living in similar ecological conditions;
· Creation of combined monitoring techniques for medical and ecological researches, as Magnetic and Electric Fields with Laser.

Expected results:

· Create the conditions for more full diagnostic of the initial stages of deseases and its possible corrections,

· Permit to research new nontraditional and noninvasive methods in diabetes treatment,
· Hardware and software complex of polyparametric monitoring,
· Methodical recommendations for use of hardware and software complex of polyparametric monitoring in treatment of diabetes,
· Criterions of evaluation for the functional state of the people during monitoring,
· Perspectives of the use for expected results:

The technologies of polyfunctional diagnostics of the organism state and criteria evaluation of the vital physiological systems are intended for preventive and clinical medicine and can be used in any medical institution:

for mass inspections in industrial and sports medicine, in various medical and ecological researches,

for quick choice of inpidual correction measures, taking into account functional state of the patient.

The proposed methods are opened for further development and improvement on the basis of the accumulation of data, which are obtained in polyparametric screening and effective correction measures for health state of people groups of the same professional activity, and groups of the people living in similar environment and ecological conditions. The application perspectives for expected results are considerably improved in case of methods realization, and its result comparison with efficiency of correctional and other improving measures.

It will allow the development of the scientifically based expert systems for the syndrome analysis and adequate inpidual choice of state correction measures.

This will give the possibility to develop scientifically based consulting models and inpidually adequate choice of correction tools.

The foreign Collaborator role:

· Potential partnership in results commercialisation.

· Information exchange during project implementation.
· Mutual review of technical reports.
· Joint seminars, workshops, meetings, consultations.
· Consultation on intellectual Property Rights, in case of joint invention.
