Focus area:

The Laboratory performs work fragments within the theme of the State task “Mechanisms of intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) investigation and their implementation in postnatal period as a risk factor of cardiovascular and endocrine diseases, the search for new prenatal factors that cause IUGR syndrome”.

We diagnose IUGR fetus syndrome, estimate retention rate and form of pathology, study the fetus condition and the degree of circulatory disorders in the mother-placenta-fetus system. We also evaluate the immunological status of a pregnant woman and fetus in order to study the possible role of inflammation in the formation mechanisms of IUGR.

The Laboratory conducts practical application of extracorporeal blood correction (plasmapheresis, plasma exchange, cryoplasmasorption, cascade plasma filtration and blood photo modification) in pregnant women; auto gemo donorship in pregnant women at high risk of pathological blood loss during labor (uterine fibroids, placenta previa, uterus scar); plasmapheresis and blood photo modification for severe septic infections prevention.
