The first stage

The Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, the original name of the “Central Research Laboratory of  DSMA” was opened by order of the Ministry of Health of the RSFSR No. 66 of 05.04. 1991.

A. Magomedov, Candidate of Medical Sciences, was elected the first director of the Central Research Institute. Laboratories of biochemistry, immunology and pathomorphology were opened as a part of the Central Research Institute. The laboratories were headed by researchers with certain scientific experience: M. A. Magomedov, Ph. D., K. Z. Kurbanov, Ph. D., and T. A. Leontieva, Ph. D.

 Initially, the Central Research Institute was assigned 2 tasks: the development of scientific foundations for the health of children and pregnant women; the development of methods for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of iron deficiency anemia and leukemia. To solve the tasks set, the laboratory took part in the implementation of the program “Healthy offspring — the future of the nation”. The results of the research were published in the local and central press and reported at conferences.

The rector of DSMA, Professor A.M. Golubev, laid the foundations for the successful development of the original direction on the problem in the Central Research Institute: “Biological systems in the conditions of using perfluorocarbon emulsions” (plasma substitutes with the function of oxygen transport) in 1996.

At the same time, laboratories of bacteriology and microcirculation were additionally organized in the Central Research Institute.   

 Under the leadership of Professors N. G. Volzhina and E. R. Nagiyev in the laboratory of biochemistry, as well as Associate Professor M. A. Magomedov researches  were conducted to study structural and functional changes and the state of lipid peroxidation of erythrocyte membranes in acute blood loss, supertoxic poisoning with metaphosomes, followed by correction of these conditions by infusion of perfluorane emulsion. 4 candidate dissertations were defended.     

 In the laboratories of morphology (under the guidance of Professor  A.M. Golubev, senior researcher  T. A. Leontieva) and bacteriology (under the guidance of senior researcher   D.Gaziumarova), studies were conducted on the topic: “Morphofunctional characteristics and antimicrobial activity of mononuclear and segmentonuclear phagocytes after administration of perfluorane”. 4 candidate dissertations were planned and defended in this direction.         

In the microcirculation laboratory, the state of the microcirculatory bed in various extreme situations and their correction with perfluorane were studied. According to the results of the research, 5 candidate dissertations were successfully defended: D. M. Rahimov, X. M. Malachilaeva, K. Sh.Khanakhmedova, A. A. Osmanova, R. D. Meilanova.  

2 patents for the invention were obtained. In this laboratory, under the guidance of Professor M. A. Magomedov, a number of candidate dissertations were completed (Sh. A. Sultanov, G. M. Dalgatov, M. I. Magomedgadzhiev, N. I. Bulaeva, M. Kh. Zafer,  A.I.Arslanbekov, M. M. Mushtilieva, M. M. Dalgatov, R. I. Ragimova, Kh.G. Musalov).

Together with the Department of Propaedeutics of Internal Diseases under the guidance of Professors I. A. Shamov and M. A. Magomedova, the candidate’s thesis of N. R. Mollayeva was performed and defended.  A system of training of settled teachers for various departments has been worked out through the Central Research Institute for 20 years: Kh. G.
