Oncology is among the priorities of the Administration of Astrakhan Region

On June 9 the Administration of Astrakhan Region and Russian leading oncologists discussed the ways to improve oncological aid in the region.
A reception at the residency of the Governor of Astrakhan Region, Mr. A.A. Zhilkin, dedicated to this issue was also timed to the launch of the All-Russian Oncological Programme "Equal Right to Live" in the region. Astrakhan Region is one of the 11 pilot constituents of the Russian Federation, where the implementation of this programme started in 2006.
 
A delegation of Russian leading oncologists has visited Astrakhansk Region. The delegation included: Deputy Director for scientific work of the Russian Research Centre of Oncology after the name of N. N. Blokhin of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Professor Mikhail Lichinitser; Chief Children’s Oncologist of the Russian Federation, Corresponding Member of the RAMS, Deputy Director of the Research Institute of Children’s Oncology and Hematology after the name of Vladimir Polyakov, Head of the Coloproctological Department of the Russian Research Centre of Oncology after the name of N. N. Blokhin of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor Yuri Barsukov; and CEO of the All-Russian Oncological Programme Social Programme "Equal Right to Live" Dmitriy Borisov.
 
Today the problem of oncological diseases is very acute in all Russian regions. Cancer is second major cause of death in our country. The number of patients with cancer is growing every year. During 2005, 3129 oncological patients (first diagnose) were registered. As of the end of 2005, 15 674 patients were registered at oncological institutions in Astrakhan Region.
 
Alexander Zhilkin, the Governor of Astrakhan Region: "In our region a considerable attention is devoted to solving the existing oncological problems. I think that inclusion of our region in the "Equal right to Live" programme will promote and contribute to the development of Astrakhan oncological service, and that in the near future it will bring considerable and noticeable results. We are ready to render comprehensive assistance in implementing the programme in our region".
 
On the 8th of June first master classes on the use of advanced methods of cancer treatment were held at Astrakhan Oncological Centre within the "Equal Right to Live" programme. Specialists from the Russian Research Centre of Oncology after the name of N. N. Blokhin of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences exchanged with Astrakhan colleagues their experience in the use of innovative approaches to treating breast cancer, colorectal cancer, hematopoietic system tumours. On the 9th of June during a joint consultation the specialists discussed tactics of further treatment of some patients of Astrakhan Oncological Centre and Regional Children’s Hospital.
 
Viktor Yushkov, Head Doctor of Astrakhan Oncological Centre: "Owing to the assistance of the Administration of Astrakhan Region and of the Governor personally we have an opportunity to provide our patients with an effective aid. Allocation of funds out of the regional budget to reconstruct our centre played a great role here. However, to provide high-quality treatment for patients, it is not important to solve material and technical problems only, but issues related to the procurement of medicines as well.
Specialists should have a constant access to information about modern achievements, they should learn to use the latest technology in cancer treatment. A possibility to exchange clinical experience with our colleagues from Russian leading oncological centres will, undoubtedly, have a positive impact on the results of our patients’ treatment".
 
By estimate, to the end of 2006 the total amount of investments attracted to the region within the programme will make about 5 million rubles. It is planned to attract moneys from extrabudgetary sources. Within the "Equal Right to Live" programme it is planned to organize in Astrakhan Region several educational programmes for doctors: training by specialists from leading oncological institutions of the country, participation of Astrakhan doctors in scientific and practical seminars, workshops and conferences on the use of new methods of oncological disease treatment in Moscow and in other regions. Within the programme it is also planned to supply the region with modern reagents required to examine patients diagnosed with breast cancer and lymphoma.
 
Mikhail Lichinitser, Deputy Director of the Russian Research Centre of Oncology after the name of N. N. Blokhin of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Corresponding Member of the RAS, Professor: "At present we may speak about a real breakthrough in cancer treatment. Better and more advanced methods are constantly appearing. They make it possible to cure or at least to extend the lives of patients, who were considered incurable and hopeless a day ago. Our task is to make such innovations available to everyone."
 
Dmitriy Borisov, CEO of the All-Russian Oncological Social Programme "Equal Right to Live": "It is not at random that Astrakhan Region has been chosen as one of the pilot regions for the implementation of the "Equal Right to Live" programme. Highly qualified specialists are working here, and there is everything needed for effective use of innovative methods of treating oncological diseases. The use of such new methods requires from doctors a constant professional development. The "Equal Right to Live" programme will help to increase Astrakhan doctors’ level of knowledge. It is one of the priorities of the programme".
