Соғлиқни сақлашни бошқариш ҳудудий органи тўғрисидаги Низом билан тасдиқланган Republican specialized scientific research medical center of phthisiology and pulmonology

The Republican specialized scientific research medical center of phthisiology and pulmonology is organized in 2009 on the basis of Research Institute of Phthisiology and Pulmonology in line with the Decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan № UP-3923 as of 19.09.2007, Resolution of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan № PP-700 as of 2.10.07 and Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers № 145 as of 21.05.2009.

Main directions of activities:

• Providing highly qualified specialized care to patients with TB and nonspecific lung diseases.;

• Research works aimed to development and implementation to medical practice new, more efficient methods and technologies of finding, diagnostics, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with TB and nonspecific lung diseases;

• Provision of organizational-methodological, consultative, practical assistance to treatment-preventive facilities of healthcare system of the Republic of Uzbekistan;

• Expansion and strengthening of international collaboration with foreign institutions and scientists;

• Conducting community health work amongst different population groups on prevention of TB and lung diseases.

Workforce potential:

There are 3 scientific departments in the Center (1.Therapy and surgery of TB with the group of laboratory diagnostics, 2.Epidemiology of TB and dispensary work. 3.Pulmonology), hospital for 500 beds with 11 units, consultative polyclinic and diagnostic block, support service and finance-bookkeeping service.

In 2000 there is opened the National reference-laboratory on TB, in 2001 – Republican Center on realization of DOTS program, in 2003 – Training Center on TB control and prevention.

• There are developed new directions in the issues of metabolic biochemistry in Phthisiology and Pulmonology, with creation of theoretical basis of shaping insulin-resistance in bronchial asthma and evidence of qualitatively new condition – combination of lung TB and diabetes mellitus; new herbal mixtures “Diasil” for treatment of patients with lung TB in combination with diabetes mellitus and herbal mixture for prevention of side effects in treatment of destructive forms of lung TB;

• There are developed new aspects of pathogenesis of chronic obstructive lung diseases, related to genetic factors, biorhythmic organization of respiratory, endocrine systems and hemodynamics, which became the theoretical basis for development of new methods of forecasting their course.;

• There are developed mechanisms of shaping corticoid dependence and corticoid resistance in bronchial asthma, which expanded the theoretical views to this problem; new method of forecasting of increased fibrosis generation in lung.
