In Russia for the first time imposed quotas for genetic testing. Now the state will pay for the expensive screenings to patients with hereditary diseases. In the framework of the state assignment will be done 18 thousand studies. They will be conducted in Moscow and in Tomsk.
A woman with her daughter came to Tomsk from the Altai region. 3-year-old child cannot walk and complain of weakness in his legs. In the clinic of medical genetics needs to find out what was the cause of the illness. Still visiting patients paid for outpatient care out of pocket, but now doctors-genetics received from the Federal Agency of scientific organizations procurement for a free consultation. This means that any citizen of Russia can come to Tomsk and undergo molecular genetic diagnosis.
Modern diagnostic techniques allow geneticists to identify abnormalities at an early stage of pregnancy. To identify genetic diseases in Tomsk scientists helps strong scientific base: the Department of medical genetics at the state University, a specialized clinic and research Institute. In his laboratory experts are able to decode the human genome. Clinic patients help effectively carry out the IVF procedure.
Often families have to make several attempts due to chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus. Now, genetics can make a diagnosis of cells and to choose an embryo with a normal karyotype. In the laboratory, preimplantation genetic diagnosis geneticist in a special box in conditions of absolute sterility is studying the embryonic cell. Quota from the Federal budget this year, the doctors plan to provide up to 7 thousand medical services.
