PhD student of RUDN Medical Institute speaks at the V Congress of the Euro-Asian Society for Infectious Diseases

May 16-18, 2018, V Congress of the Euro-Asian Society for Infectious Diseases in Novosibirsk brought together more than 400 doctors from Russian regions, as well as specialists from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Belarus.

The event is aimed at sharing experience in the use of advanced medical technologies in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of infectious diseases in adults and children, as well as in coordinating efforts to improve medical care for infectious patients.

Among the scientific directions of the Congress are biosafety, bacterial infections, viral infections, mycoses, tropical and parasitic diseases, hospital infections, immune disorders in infectious diseases, the problem of resistance of pathogens and rational antimicrobial chemotherapy, laboratory diagnostics,

Ekaterina Samotolkina, a PhD student of RUDN Department of Infectious Diseases with courses in epidemiology and phthisiology presented studies on the causes of death of severe HIV-infected patients in the intensive care unit, risk factors for cardiovascular disease in HIV-infected patients over the age of 40, analysis of the definition of insufficient adherence to treatment in the cascade of medical care for HIV-infected patients, and malaria situation on the territory of Ukraine. The materials are published in the Annex to the Journal "Infectology", indexed in Scopus.

The event was organized by the RF Ministry of Health, the Euro-Asian Society for Infectious Diseases, the Ministry of Health of the Novosibirsk Region, the Novosibirsk State Medical University, the Children's Scientific and Clinical Center for Infectious Diseases, St. Petersburg Public Organization "Humans and human health".

Scientists Reveal the Water Column of the Yamal Lakes Can Be a Microbial Filter

Scientists from the Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology RAS, RUDN University, St. Petersburg State University and the Tyumen Scientific Centre SB RAS studied the microbial communities from several lakes of the Yamal Peninsula. It turned out that methanotrophs (bacteria that use methane as a source of energy) consume methane more actively in the deep mature lakes of the peninsula than in small thermokarst lakes. In this regard, methane emissions into the atmosphere from the surface of deep lakes are low, and only small (relatively younger thermokarst lakes with constitutional ground ice) can make a significant contribution to methane emissions in the north of Western Siberia. Thus, bacteria perform an important function for the climate balance — they reduce the emission of methane into the atmosphere.

RUDN University Physicists Determine the Optimal Conditions for Holding High-Energy Plasma Clouds in Pyrotron

RUDN University physicists have described the conditions for the most efficient operation of long mirror-based variant of cyclotron in the autoresonance mode. These data will bring better understanding of plasma processes in magnetic traps.
