Online Conference in the International Research and Educational Center of the Ministry of Health and Medical Industry of Turkmenistan

Online conference “Evolutionary Aspects of molecular allergology and clinical relevance of component-resolved diagnostics”, organized by the International Research and Educational Center of the Ministry of Health and Medical Industry of Turkmenistan (Ashkhabad, Turkmenistan) and Research institute of Vaccines and Serums named by I. I. Mechnikov (Moscow, Russia) with the assistance of the Vienna Medical University (Vienna, Austria) was held July 26, 2016, in Ashkhabad, Turkmenistan. Fifty allergists, physicians and family doctors from Ashkhabad visited the conference. The lecturer, Prof. Dr. Marina A. Mokronosova, Head of the Laboratory of clinical allergology IVS named by I. I. Mechnikov, told participants about the development of IgE-mediated reactions, initially appeared in primates as a mechanism of the anti-helminths defense. Then, this mechanism was developed as a specific answer against the variety of animal and plant proteins. Panallergens, which are widely spreaded cross reactive animal and plant proteins, drive IgE-mediated reactions very often. Knowing about the induction of IgE reactivity to different groups of allergens, allergist can predict severity of disease and, thus, choose the correct therapy strategy. Additionally, Prof. Marina A. Mokronosova in her lecture gave particular clinical cases, which showed the importance of molecular allergology for allergist’ everyday work. Questions about the latest allergology issues indicated the very high interest of the audience to the topic of the lecture.

Organization of the online conference was on extremely high level. All participants will be waiting for next lecturers in such format.
