The STATE-OF-THE-ART REVIEW of the IX ALL-RUSSIAN SCIENTIFIC FORUM WITH the INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPATION "DAYS of IMMUNOLOGY IN ST. PETERSBURG" DEVOTED to MEMORY of the ACADEMICIAN BI.IOFFE (on May 23-26, 2005)

The annual All-Russian Forum with the international participation "Days of immunology in St. Petersburg" devoted to memory of the academician V.I. Ioffe was held on May 23-26, 2005 the ninth year in a row.

At the Forum of 2005 the delivery of Medals of a name of the academician of the Russian Academy of Medical Science V.I. Ioffe founded in 2003 by SZO Russian Academy of Medical Science and SPb RO RAAKI, "For an outstanding contribution to development of fundamental immunology in the Russian Federation" to the academician of the Russian Academy of Medical Science, professor E.A. Korneva and "For an outstanding contribution to development of clinical immunology in the Russian Federation" to the academician of the Russian Academy of Medical Science, professor V.A. Kozlov took place.

Traditionally the most topical issues of immunology among which the share of molecular and biological problems increases every year are discussed at the Forum. It found reflection and in subject of the materials presented this year for participation in the Forum. The program of the Forum of this year was most sated with daily morning and evening plenary sessions with reports of leading experts on the most burning issues of fundamental and applied immunology. It should be noted that all 26 planned plenary reports which authors partially already presented materials of the reports for the publication in the form of reviews in the Meditsinskaya Immunologiya magazine took place.

The tradition of carrying out the symposiums prepared at the initiative of experts from other cities gained development. So, the special symposium organized by the staff of the Moscow scientific research institute of children's hematology (prof. I.V. Kondratenko), devoted to use in therapy of antitsitokinovy medicines is carried out. Other special symposium on problems of local immunity was carried out at the initiative of immunologists of Vladivostok (prof. E.V. Markelov). The third symposium was organized and carried out at the initiative of the Moscow onkoimmunolog under the chairmanship of the prof. A.Yu. Baryshnikov and devoted to a problem of vaccinal prevention of cancer.

Daily there took place meetings of the "Round tables" devoted: to immunoregulation, cytokines, immunomodulators of the endogenous and exogenous nature, interaction parasite owner. It gave the chance to more wide range of participants to discuss problems: infectious immunology, opportunities of modern immunocorrection, including cytocinematherapy.

The "fashionable" problem of stem cells, the prospects of their study and application in medicine was actively discussed by participants of the Forum. Not the smaller attention was drawn by discussion of features of local immunity which many clinical physicians face.

Besides, in a format of monothematic section meetings problems were discussed: immunopathologies, immunology of a reproduction, ecological immunology and development of immunological methods.

This year the tradition of holding the separate meetings of "Club of the young immunologist" devoted to questions of fundamental and applied immunology which won popularity with reports of the youngest participants of the Forum was kept. The number of applications from young immunologists sharply increased that demanded holding three meetings of Club at which more than 30 messages were heard. The majority of reports differed in the modern methodical level, courageous use of molecular and biological and genetic engineering methods. The jury which noted 10 best reports which authors were awarded with diplomas and gifts worked at meetings of Club.

All more than 450 people took part in work of the Forum. The forum quite justified the name All-Russian since on it reports not only of Petersburgers and Muscovites, but also immunologists from Yaroslavl were submitted, to Tver, Krasnoyarsk, Chelyabinsk, Yekaterinburg, Vladivostok, Chita, Perm, Ivanov, Kursk and other cities. The international participation was presented not only immunologists from Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Estonia and Latvia, but also colleagues from Germany, the USA, Israel.

At the Forum of 2005 in comparison with the previous conferences the trend of methodical improvement of researches of domestic immunologists, strengthenings of instrument base, wider use of molecular and biological methods along with immunological was distinctly shown. And clinical physicians of a different profile introduce immunomodulatory medicines in medical practice more and more safely.
