Pirogov Russian State Medical University
Course: «Anti-aging medicine and associated approaches to facilitation of a prolonged active life span»
Faculty of Advanced Medical Studies
year 1990 witnessed the birth of a novel medical research and clinical field
called anti-aging medicine. This year an article authored by Dr. Daniel Rudman
and colleagues was published in the New England Journal of Medicine, which described
how Dr. Rudman and involved research team facilitated the partial regression of
age-related degeneration by administrating growth hormone to senior patients.
The foregoing discovery led to the creation of
the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine in 1993.
In Russia the first ever medical facility that solely concentrated
its efforts on anti-aging medicine and associated sciences was created
back in 2001 by a group of well-known physicians headed by Dr.
worth noting considering the above-mentioned developments that the turn of the
century proved to be a starting point for practical application of long-thought
research dedicated to the extension of the healthy and active human life span.
During this time researchers developed not only drugs and medications which
possess anti-aging properties but also carried out studies which will in the
nearest future significantly and positively impact existing human longevity.
2009 the scientific board of the Pirogov Russian State Medical University decided
to incorporate into the curriculum of the faculty of advanced medical studies a
course dedicated to anti-aging medicine. The foregoing academic course is going
to be headed by Dr. Vladimir Undritzov, MD, PhD. Being an active member of the
New York Academy of Sciences and having accumulated more than 20 years of
practical experience in the fields of geriatrics and endocrinology Dr.
Undritzov co-authored a practical guide on gerontology edited by Professor V.N.
Shabalin (Member of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences). The above-mentioned
facilitated the creation in Russia of a single knowledge-based cluster from a
series of independent research institutions the sole purpose of which is to
accumulate research data and develop approaches for their practical
addition to this, Dr. Undritzov is currently coordinating activities related to
the creation of an Association which would unite medical practitioners involved
in the application of latest anti-aging technologies.
should also be emphasized that the research and clinical field headed by Dr.
Undritzov and his practical experience of anti-aging medicine is at the very
forefront of modern anti-aging medicine and in pace with the relevant
developments and fundamental clinical research conducted by leading US and
European research and clinical institutions. Dr. Undritzov’s main professional
interests lie within the realm of pre-emptive treatment of atherosclerotic
plaque formation in the arteries. This disease is the leading cause of strokes
and heart attacks both in Russia and abroad and accounts for an 80% mortality
rate in patients whose main professional occupation is centered on managerial
and executive duties. Both strokes and heart attacks are fatal complications of
the atherosclerotic disease.
practical results of clinical trials which lead to the total removal of
atherosclerotic plaques from
arteries in participating patients were published in several Russian scientific
journals and also publicly presented during the forum organized under the
auspices of the Center of Social Innovations http://www.cscp.ru/clauses/397/c/3641/
The third of a series of educational courses on the latest anti-aging technologies and their clinical application will take place in May 2011. The above-mentioned seminar cycle will be devoted
to lecturing licensed physicians on the current medical approaches and
associated methodology the sole purpose of which is to facilitate and prolong
the so-called “active” human life span. Guest lecturers will include but not be
limited to Professor Skulachev (Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences)
author of the theory of phenoptosis (aka programmed aging), Professor Sukhikh (Member
of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences) pioneer of clinical application of
stem cell therapy, Professor Shabalin (Member of the Russian Academy of Medical
Sciences) head of the institute of gerontology, Professor Fedin (Member of the
Russian Academy of Medical Sciences) chief vice-provost of the Pirogov Russian
State Medical University, leading Russian expert in the field of age-related
degeneration of the central nervous system, Professor Martynov, who during his
tenure as the chief medical officer of the so-called Kremlin Hospital treated
high-ranking elderly Politburo officials, Professor Kubanova (Member of the
Russian Academy of Medical Sciences), etc.
should be specifically stressed that Dr. Undritzov and his team of experts
participating in the cycle of seminars devoted to current developments in the
field of anti-aging medicine is based on in-depth understanding of intricacies
related to aging processes and currently available treatments and technologies.
