TOMSK, Dec 19 – RIA Tomsk. Scientists of Tomsk State University (TSU) together with
colleagues from Research Institute of Pharmacology and Regenerative Medicine
obtained new data on the work of the blood coagulation system; this information
will help reduce the number of heart attacks and strokes, is reported on the
website of TSU.
It is specified that researchers from TSU and Goldberg
Research Institute of Pharmacology and Regenerative Medicine study the
processes of hemostasis (the blood coagulation system). At the initial stage, scientists
have created an electronic database with data of several hundred patients with
"The information was processed with the help of
computing systems. Based on the obtained data was built physical and
mathematical model which allows to describe changes in the aggregative state of
the blood during the process of thrombus formation", – is said in the
It is added that more than 10 years ago in Tomsk was
created the "Mednord" device to analyze the blood coagulation process,
bypassing the lengthy and complex stage of sample preparation. The device is
widely used in clinical practice, but does not allow researchers to fully
understand the system of regulation of the aggregative state of the blood.
"Physical and mathematical modeling of the
process and its verification by laboratory experiments conducted at TSU allowed
to obtain new data that can be used to expand the functionality of the device.
In the long term, this will allow to detect changes in the blood structure that
indicate the beginning of a serious disease in advance", – reports the
According to the TSU website, diseases of the
cardiovascular system are on the first place among the causes of death in the
Russian Federation, and often not their progress, but thrombohemorrhagic
complications caused by blood coagulation disorders leads to fatal outcome. To
reduce the percentage of "vascular accidents", precise diagnostic
tools to identify the problem at the initial stage are needed.
